    Please let there be no sign Desean Jackson threads!! His connection to gang members and homicides is NOT a thing I want associated with the Pats. Especially after the Hernandez fiasco, that is the LAST thing we want on our team!!

    Frightening stuff. I didn't realize it was this bad. Knowing the above, if true, I don't think the Patriots should touch him with a 10 foot pole.

    Was all for signing him until the part where it mentioned his "friends" becoming more influential and gang links. No team should want a part of that but you know the Rats will be all in on him.

    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


    I think Eagles saw the fiasco with AHern-Patriots, and probably don't want something like that in Philly...

    A team would be foolish if they invest long term on someone like that..

    Eagles lower cap but carry $6M in dead money to not have him around. Pretty strong message there.

    That article seems completely speculative and with little basis. I'd love seeing him here catching passes from TB12. Plenty of ways to structure the deal so that the pats are protected. We have taken on guys with worse backgrounds. I just hope he's done doing cartwheels into the endzone.

    While I don't think he will be out of the league, it will hurt his pockets. Gotta be smarter, as the pouncey's learned with their connections to AH. Gotta play the game.

    Apart from the photos of him throwing gang signs or hanging with members of the Crips? No basis at all there...

    Pretty sure the gang connection thing makes this a guaranteed "not going to happen."

    Good point. I'm sure the Eagles cut a 1,300 yard receiver and are carring 6M in dead cap based on speculation.
