Skip to comments.Jackson cut by Eagles follows ‘gang’ report; Jets still interested

Its your move, Woody Johnson. The Eagles released star wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Friday, making him a free agent the Jets and their owner may want to grab. Jackson was released shortly after a report revealed the Eagles had concerns about his ties to gang activity in Los Angeles, complicating any decision on the receiver. --SNIP-- But the situation got a lot murkier Friday with the NJ.com report that Jackson was contacted by the LAPD about a 2010 gang-related murder. The police said Jackson was never a suspect, but his ties to Theron Shakir, a purported member of the Crips gang, led the police to speak to Jackson. Shakir was later acquitted of the murder. The report also said another gang-related murder took place in 2012 at a building owned or leased by a member of Jacksons family and documents belonging to him were found at the scene.

Sounds like Raider material.
Remember....Saying the N word....bad
Having Gang ties.....good.
National Felon league strikes again.
if they pursue him its because they already signed Vick and Ryan thinks he can control ay situation with his big mouth.
Vick as QB, now this guy @ Jets.
What he meant, but was too gutless to say, was the black thug culture.
The American gun culture consists of supporting the 2nd Amend., collecting, hunting and shooting for defensive training, sport and enjoyment.
Felonious football players aside, I say that Woody Johnson is one of the coolest names for a football team owner ever.
I agree. At this point, the Raiders need some kind of spark, even if it is somewhat icky.
Hide your pets, Vick’s on the Jets ! ! !
So, they cut a player based on some unproven allegations about gangs, but they keep a drunk racist that spews the n-word on camera? There was more proof against Richard Jewell.
Or a porn actor.
Sorry, but what's so "cool" about the name "Woody" and what is the connection between "Woody" and football (other than the late curmudgeon who coached Ohio State)?
"Woody" Johnson is actually Robert Woods Johnson, heir of one of the founders of Johnson & Johnson.
I think your facts are confused. The racist player, Riley Cooper, is still on the Eagles, while Jackson was cut over some vague rumors. So I guess as far as Lurie is concerned N-word is good, having gang ties is bad. I'm sure Lurie has never known someone or be related to someone who did something wrong.
“No More Tears,” could never be the slogan of the Jets.
Cooper is still on the team, Jackson is off. Looks like you’ve got it all backwards.
Not entirely unproven. He instagrams and tweets pictures of himself throwing gang signs and hanging out with known gang members on a fairly regular basis. There’s no proof he’s active, or has committed crimes, but there’s lots of proof that he’s embroiled in the culture. And after the Hernandez thing nobody with half a brain will sign him, so he’ll be a Jet or Raider.
I was talking about the proposed N word ban by the NFL. Sorry for the confusion
The Jets were painfully weak at wide receiver last year, and recently gave up on Santonio Holmes.
Rules committee tossed it, said it was already covered by the unsportsmanlike conduct and taunting rules.
He hasn’t committed a crime yet, he’s just showing bad judgement. And he went to UC Berkley.
“Sean” wasn’t good enough, they had to an a “De” in front of it.
Neighbors with VaGina ?
If flashing gangs signs in a picture is an indication of anything there are millions of teenage, suburban white girls who are gangsters.
This isn’t Stomfront.
Not just flashing gang signs, being WITH known gang members while doing it. Plus more, you need to do some reading:
Ooooh he said the N-word, the same word many black players use all the time.
He was a two-time All American at Cal-Berkeley.
The police said Jackson was never a suspect, but his ties to Theron Shakir, a purported member of the Crips gang, led the police to speak to Jackson. Shakir was later acquitted of the murder.
Too bad we couldn’t just insert the names Obama and Ayers...
LAPD detective, Eric Crosson, clearly believes Jackson himself is part of the Crips gang. His evidence includes Jackson throwing up supposed Crip gang signs in photos, even on the field in NFL games. Also, the name of Jackson's record labelJaccpotbecause, according to Crosson, "Crips avoid putting a 'C' next to a 'K' because in gangspeak, that stands for 'Crip Killer.'"
Unfortunately, Jackson, who should renamed himself "Jaccson', will be catching passes from Michael Vicc, I mean, Vick.
And nickcarraway? You know life is over as we know it when there's a website dedicated to white chicks making gang signs.
A great player name who happens to be Kobe Bryant’s uncle,
Don Henley and Glenn Frey
“Felonious football players aside, I say that Woody Johnson is one of the coolest names for a football team owner ever.”
Slightly off topic,but every time I hear the name “Saxby Chambliss” I remark that is the coolest name ever for a Southern senator.
Jackson went to UC Berkeley. I think he’s worth the risk, just put behavioral incentives in his contract.
holmes is a cancer. I do believe the Jets were weak at WR but they were horrible at QB too. They could have had Jerry Rice in his prime and he would have looked bad.
Jerry Rice is a very shy and humble man. His wife and he go to a church near me, and his wife is very involved, but they don’t like to be a big deal. And it’s a very conservative church, religiously.
I just couldn’t help but think they were talking about Jackson Browne being cut from the Eagles....
