DeSean Jackson just made a statement on his release from the Philadelphia Eagles.

via Adam Schefter:

“First I would like to thank the Eagles organization, the Eagles fans and the city of Philadelphia for my time in Philly. I would also like to thank coach Andy Reed for bringing me in. Secondly, I would like to address the misleading and unfounded reports that my release has anything to do with any affiliation that has been speculated surrounding the company I keep off of the field. I would like to make it very clear that I am not and never have been part of any gang. I am not a gang member and to speculate and assume that I am involved in such activity off the field is reckless and irresponsible. I work very hard on and off the field and I am a good person with good values. I am proud of the accomplishments that I have made both on and off the field. I have worked tirelessly to give back to my community and have a positive impact on those in need. It is unfortunate that I now have to defend myself and my intentions. These reports are irresponsible and just not true . I look forward to working hard for my new team. God Bless.”

I think in the end Jackson simply didn’t fit with Chip Kelly’s scheme or his approach to his team. ¬†Jackson will rebound and land with another team.

He’s to talented not to.

Hopefully this will allow Jackson to mature some, and figure out what’s truly important.
