Eagles release Desean Jackson. Mr. Belichick, I would really like to see Tom Brady throw 40 TDs this upcoming season. That would be nice. How are the two subjects related? Well, you're a highly intelligent man, I'm sure you can figure it out.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports DeSean Jackson's off-field behavior, particularly his connection to a Los Angeles street gang, is the Eagles' chief concern and main reason they're entertaining trading or releasing him.
Jackson has a problem with missing team meetings, and the Eagles reportedly believe his friends are becoming a powerful, negative influence. The team is "concerned about having [Jackson] around the younger players. Jackson has become close with a man named Theron Shakir, a member of the Crips and one of two men charged in the murder of a 14-year-old rival gang member. The Eagles simply don't want to wake up to an Aaron Hernandez situation one morning. Jackson has very likely played his last down for the Eagles.

His contract is one that teams didn't want. At any rate they are saying on Numbers Never Lie that he may have "gang connections," whatever that really means. So long as he's not getting arrested I don't care, I'll take him on my team.

Because people who get released because of possible gang ties are a good idea for the Pats right now. Not like anything like that ever hurt them.

I remember mentioning prior that the Eagles talked about his robbery like it was almost his fault. Now we know why. Eh, better for him, better for Eagles if they really suspect bad things, and he's a good pick but do your due dilligence.

this reaks of Philly knowing more than we do...

That him and his WR coach do not get along and Jason Avant was a mentor/mediator/leader of that unit? Which is why some sparked the talks of Djax when Avant was released as far as who would be there to control him as he did?

Yeah definitely more that us fans don't know. Clear as day. I mean let's be honest, Djax is a game breaker talent no question. But he's not a legit #1 WR in my book and lacks the ability to do other things that would really make him a player. For one he lacks size. That affects his potential in redzone situations, winning jump balls, getting that tough first down catch on 3rd and 8. He also cant play the slot. Not to diminish his impact, as I said you get him the ball he is a big play threat. But he's not irreplaceable and he gets paid a lot of money for someone who is limited in what he can do as a WR.

Not to always side with Eagles management tho. You overpaid Riley Cooper who in a contract year benefited greatly from Djax being across from him. No way his run blocking as a WR is that good. Lets be real, he's no burner and doesnt get a lot of separation from defenders. Then you sign Maclin who is a better WR imo than Djax to a 1yr deal where he all but said "I will get PAID next season and take a contract year deal this season".

So you get rid of Djax, and go to battle with an WR coming off injury and a guy who had his best year last season. And you're going to go WR with your first pick over defense...the side of the ball you need to address? Or WR 2nd rd?

So yeah what don't we know as Eagles fans about the Djax situation? Surely he didnt bone Chip Kelly wife. He simply didnt return phone calls/keep in contact with the guy.
clear as day...

yeah I doubt the patriots organization wants a situation that could be similar to the aaron hernandez scandal

I don't know how much appetite the Pats have for risk post-Hernandez but I heard the Pats inquired about his avaialability when Philly was seeking a trade partner. I do know that the Pats have brought in several players of questionable character in the Belichick era and pre-Hernandez I'm completely sure a gang rumor wouldn't stop them from going after a major asset. For myself, unless a guy is getting arrested or I know he's up to some bad stuff I'd go for it. He's friends with some gang member? May be poor judgment but I bet lots of players have some friend(s) from childhood or even adulthood that break law.
