DeSean Jackson has heard all the reports and rumors concerning his release from the Philadelphia Eagles, and he’s out to prove that despite what you may have heard, his teammates in Philly loved him.
Jackson said in an interview with DJ Skee that his former Eagles teammates were sad to see him go.
“The funniest thing, man: all this stuff like he’s not a locker room player, he don’t get along with his teammates, the people that really know me, they’re like ‘Man where is all this coming from?’” Jackson said, via Dan Steinberg of theWashington Post. “I had teammates texting me and hitting me up, teammates that’s still on the Eagles right now, like ‘What were they talking about you ain’t a team guy, you don’t get along with people in your locker room?’ Everybody in the locker room loved me, you feel me?”
Jackson also said he appreciated teammates like LeSean McCoy being “real homies” when it counted most.
“I know who my real homies are,” Jackson said. “The real homies stepped up. My boy LeSean McCoy, one of the best running backs in the NFL, he stepped up, he said some real stuff. But in this league bro, a lot of people are scared and afraid to speak up, because they feel like they’re gonna be the next one cut. They feel like they’re gonna be the next one cut. So the ones that really did step up and speak up, I salute all of them.”
