Ex Teammates Defend DeSean Jackson

On the day DeSean Jackson officially signed with the Redskins, the free agent wide receiver said he did not need to defend himself  in response to negative reports that surfaced when the Eagles cut him on May 28.

He told Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation” his work in the community speaks for itself, and those who really know him know about his character.

Since that time, two members of the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles have offered endorsements of their former teammate. 

LeSean McCoy told Philadelphia reporters he never saw Jackson quarrel with coach Eagles coach Chip Kelly, and McCoy refuted the report that teammates were happy to see Jackson leave the team.

“I don’t know how honest that would be,” McCoy said. “It is a surprise. You’ve heard so much, you don’t really know [what’s true].

“Not playing with him is definitely going to be different. Playing against him is really going to be different. DeSean’s by far one of the biggest playmakers in the game, and the biggest deep threat there is in the game. Some big shoes to fill, for sure.”

 

 

The All-Pro running back also said he trusted Philadelphia’s front office, and the team must have its reasons for jettisoning Jackson.

Jackson celebrated McCoy’s support on his Instagram account, where he posted an ESPN headline with the comment, “Real friends stand up in real times.”

Kurt Coleman – a reserve safety with the Eagles who has since signed with the Minnesota Vikings – also said he was surprised by negative comments about Jackson in an apperance on SiriusXM NFL Radio “Late Hits.”

 “I thought DeSean was a good guy in the locker room. He was someone I could talk to and could relate to,” Coleman said.

“Did he kind of do his own thing? Yeah. But we kind of all do our own thing in our own way. But when it came game time I would talk to him every game and I would ask him, ‘Is 10-mode on?’ And there was no question. He would give 100 percent. He would take those big hits for the team. And he was one of those guys that you wanted to play every Sunday because the explosiveness, the X-factor that he brought to a team is [unmatched].

“I think Philadelphia is going to miss him. And I appreciate him as a teammate. I can’t say anything bad about him, and I think it’s unfortunate the rap that he’s got, but he is a good person.”

Jackson began forging relationships with his new teammates at Redskins Park on Monday, when he participated in the team’s voluntary conditioning program.
