Notes: Jackson Owes Rosenhaus 500K

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson catch against Chargers
An NFLPA  arbitrator found that DeSean Jackson owes Drew Rosenhaus over $500,000, according to a report.

Per Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, it was determined that Jackson owes his former agent a grand total of $516,415 in unpaid loans and agent fees.

Rosenhaus filed a grievance alleging that Jackson took multiple loans from him between 2009-2012. The two parted ways last May. Jackson went on to sign with Joel Segal.

Rosenhaus negotiated Jackson's five-year, $48 million contract with the Eagles. The team cut Jackson just two seasons into that deal. Jackson's agreement with the Redskins -- which includes $16 million guaranteed -- was negotiated by Segal, who will now be the one getting a percentage of the wideout's earnings.

Long To Visit Eagles

Nebraska guard Spencer Long is scheduled to visit with the Eagles, according to Adam Caplan.

Long (6-5, 320) played right guard for Nebraska and started in 33 games. He suffered an MCL injury six games into last season. Long was a Second Team All-American selection in 2012. NFL.com projects that he will go in the third or fourth round this May. Here is part of their write-up on him:

Big, tough, physical, ornery blocker with starter-quality positional traits and intangible qualities. Is best in a phone booth, where he excels as a run and pass blocker, and is smart and savvy enough to contribute outside in emergency situations.

The Eagles have also reportedly brought in Texas guard Trey Hopkins and USC G/C Marcus Martin. A list of the Eagles pre-draft visits can be found here.

  • GW.Fisher

    Started spending that $16 mil a tad early is all…

  • NickS1

    “..he handed me a piece of paper that said, ‘I NEED MONEY’…”

    • Philip Soloninka

      “I SAID SHIII ME TOO!”

  • RightsTough

    Check with his teammates: He borrowed money from EVERY SUCKER he could find in that locker room too (even the back up long snapper). He is a complete bafoon and very unprofessional. And trust me, he doesn’t have any clue what “unprofessional” means.

    • cliff henny

      Rosenhaus probably thought it was a loan. i’m sure teammates familiar w/ djax on a day to day level knew full well giving him money was 50/50 to getting it back or tossing it down a gutter.

      • Chris

        I remember during the lockout, BG came out and said that teammates asked him to borrow money and he said no…hard to imagine djax needed it that bad during lockout, but who knows. He could’ve been one of them

    • Reese36

      I guess u know him very well, huh? People tickle me with these comments like they were in the locker room with these players.

      • RightsTough

        You aint tickled Boo? I can name three players off the top of my head that he STILL owes over $ 5G’s to. The smart guys lent him a small amount ($ 500 or so) and then they wrote it off. He paid back piece meal as all the thugs do. Some guys got clipped big time but they never talked. ASK THE EAGLES PLAYERS!!! You think Kelly and Lurie are cutting Pro Bowl receivers without a reason? 60% of the guys ion the NFL have “Gang” friends so you know they was fronton on that excuse. This guy was about as welcome in that locker room as a drug dealer at an AA meeting! Total Punk.

        Now you feel me?

        • cliff henny

          please pllllease PLLLLLEEEEEASE tell me he got some of NNo-D’s cash

          • RightsTough

            Ha ha . . I can’t confirm that one. But I guarantee you he better bring his checkbook to the Linc when the ‘Skins make the trip. DJax days are numbered in the NFL if he don’t straighten up. But I think he know it now.

          • anon

            Name names or STFU.

          • G_WallyHunter

            maybe NNo-D was so pissed at desean for taking his money that he couldn’t even eat in the same room as him at lunch to avoid confrontation in front of the team, so he opted to eat outside….. in his car?
            Not too far fetched

        • NickS1

          Maybe not a great analogy? If I was an addict and was forced into NA I’d be amped to find the pusher man! Unless I was court ordered and had drug screening..then I’d be a little pissed.

        • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

          dude, lay off the drugs

    • MediaMike

      Soooo…………….. Rights Tough is Maclin’s screen name? Nice to see you on here #18!

      • RightsTough

        No No No . . . WRONG! I’m out Boyz!

    • GEAGLE

      We don’t have a back up long snapper

      • Johnny Domino

        Mike Bartrum, from his couch, if you need him.

    • Maggie

      Like Andy 124 says, how do claim that something you THINK might have happened or be about to happen, be the guaranteed truth? You’ve never been in the locker room, or if you have, what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room. Doesn’t it?

  • cliff henny

    Good luck collecting, hope it’s ACH’d from Jax’s paychecks. think of the types of thugs you’d have to send to DJ’s door to make him nervous. guy’s sitting in his living with crips, either before or after they were breaking the law, since he draws the line at during.

    • Andy124

      last sentence is pure gold.

      He seriously needs to start listening to some smart people though. I can’t imagine how hard it would suck to work your butt off, put your long term health at risk, make millions for your sacrifices, and end up broke.

      • cliff henny

        and how does DeAngelo Hall fit into listening to smarter people?

        • Andy124

          Fits in somewhere between taking PR advice from McNabb attending a salary cap management course taught by Jerruh.

          • Chris

            I can’t say the free air guitar lessons haven’t paid off for me

    • TripSquadMonopoly

      Nobody used to talk about him in such a negative light until a month before he was released. Djacc has been who he is for some time now. None of this used to matter when he was producing on the field. I just don’t get how people didn’t see this before hes BEEN a little f’er.

      • cliff henny

        cause he was our little f’er.

        • Andy124

          fact

    • PaoliBulldog

      If I were Drew I’d hire a pack o’ Bloods on a contingency fee basis.

      What’s in your wallet?

  • PaoliBulldog

    Did they check DJax’s crib for Rosenhaus’s fingerprints after the burglary?

  • MediaMike

    DeSean is my boy and such, but he needs to pay his bills.

    • TripSquadMonopoly

      He wants to have his cake and eat it too. He wants to make millions playing football and still be a thug without technically being in a gang. He still gets robbed like hes in one. If anyone has an instagram account you should follow him to really get an idea of how much of a head case he is. Hes acts like a female 20 posts a day.

      • Maggie

        Acts like a female what?

        • TripSquadMonopoly

          Grown men do not post 20 pictures a day to a social media account.

          • Maggie

            Oh, okay, like female 13-year-old girls. Gotcha.

          • PaoliBulldog

            What’s wrong with female 13-year-old girls? Those are the best kind.

  • cliff henny

    Jax and Drew…

    .

    • Maggie

      That was one of those movies that was so ridiculously over the top that it was funny.

      • Johnny Domino

        I occasionally use “Moose Rocco” as an alias.

  • JosephR2225

    I’ll tell you what I’m blathering about… I’ve got information man! New
    s*** has come to light! And s***… man, [he robbed his own house]. Well
    sure, man. Look at it… a young [Pro-Bowl Receiver], in the parlance of our
    times, you know, and [he], uh, uh, owes money all over town, including to
    known [agents], and that’s cool… that’s, that’s cool, I’m, I’m
    saying, [he] needs money, man. And of course they’re going to say that
    they didn’t get it, because… [he] wants more, man! [He’s] got to feed
    the monkey, I mean uh… hasn’t that ever occurred to you, man? Sir?

    • NickS1

      Genius.

    • Maggie

      Not sure whether to up or down vote. ;~)

  • Amar (India)

    Said the great Anupam Kher in Silver lining playbook ‘Desean Jackson is the man’

  • Tom w

    Needed the guaranteed money And the new agent needed the new contract to get paid. Over under 2.5 yrs b4 skins cut him.

    • James Skip Carl

      Under

    • TripSquadMonopoly

      Under

  • GEAGLE

    Desean owes me money.

    • JosephR2225

      I’m sure he’ll pay you bacc.

  • PhillySean

    Saw a tweet claiming that these loans stemmed from inducements to sign with Rosehaus which would only be payable in the event that Jackson parted ways with the agent. Anyone know anything about this?

    • Adam G

      Doesn’t make sense considering NFL agents only get 3%. There were rumors of these loans when Desean was tanking and using Rosenhaus’ credit card.

  • Rick H

    The EAGLES must to be to blame for this misunderstanding between Jackson and his agent. They leaked this story they had to do it. This all about Chip’s big ego. I bet Chip was there when Rosenhaus lent Jackson the money so he clearly is to blame.
    A fundraiser for D. Jackson has already been set up at the Linc. “SAVE A CRIB”
    Just go on the Eagles website and do a search for it.

    • Bullwinkle

      Hopefully, Dan Synder and RGIII will quickly resolve this issue by lending DeSean the money. Neither one of those guys have big ego issues. DeSean will thrive in DC with his new nursemaids guiding him along.

    • Johnny Domino

      Was that Crib, or Crip?

      • Rick H

        You are correct sir. Maybe it should be a fundraiser called “Crip needs Crib! DJax broke again! DJax doesn’t pay his agent back or 40 other people he borrows (cough cough) $$$ from”

  • botto

    what did he need to borrow all that money for?
    and why hasnt he paid it back?
    i dont get it, the guy made some money so whats the deal?
    its kind of weird to borrow money from your agent and then fire him…

    • Maggie

      Maybe the studious bespectackled (?) young man who was interviewed by S.A. Smith actually surmised that firing one’s agent means never having to pay him? Therefore, never having to pay him back?

    • Kev_H

      Players normal salary is only paid in season in the form of game checks. It’s not uncommon for some players to be out of cash by May/June if they don’t get bonus money.

  • Token

    I wish I never had to see another DeSean story. At least until we play the Redskins.

    • MediaMike

      How about this Redskins story:

      I traded their 2nd, 3rd, 2015 #1, and 2016 #1 to move up in the draft to guarantee they’ll have their franchise QB.

    • Joe L

      Pass catchers.

    • cliff henny

      YES!

  • Dave S

    I said he’d be broke a year after his career was over, boy was I off! LOL!

  • GEAGLE

    Yawn….this idiot again? If I don’t get to reap the rewards of his gamebreaking ability, then I want this F’in idiot out of my life. Can’t wait til chip announces the draft picks he makes and the dumb media will be wasting our time asking him about to Desean….conduit to fans? Really?

  • GEAGLE

    This idiot again? If don’t get to enjoy his gamebreaking ability then why do we continuosly get this idiot shoved in our face? If we have to lose him, ATleast let us be rid of his crap…nope.

    • Kev_H

      Just so they don’t post about his Redskins drama and spats.

  • Weapon Y

    If Andy was the one who released DeSean, everyone would be furious at this sequence of events. At least I’m consistent. Why does Chip get to be put on a pedestal, immune to legitimate criticism for an obvious unnecessary downgrading of talent? It’s not like the Eagles were short on cap space.

    • DoctorRick

      You are kidding, right?

    • anon

      No one cares… if you are winning.

    • PaoliBulldog

      You’re not consistent; you’re an ignorant troll. Go bother the Cowgirls; they don’t have much to talk about over there.

    • Maggie

      Any team can release anybody they wish, at any time. That’s just the way it is. Especially hen NOBODY else will trade for him.

  • DoctorRick

    Must be Chip Kelly’s ego that caused this!

  • Mr. Magee

    You guys (posters) were killing it today… LMFAO

  • oreofestar

    what I miss lol

  • anon

    The Sacramento Bee reports the 49ers “have been shopping” third-year RB LaMichael James.

    It’s been speculated James would be available since early in the offseason. The 61st overall pick in the 2012 draft, James has earned just 44 offensive touches in two seasons with San Francisco. His kickoff-return production dropped sharply as a sophomore, and he fumbled two punts. An undersized, straight-linish runner with no power and little elusiveness, we don’t have particularly high hopes for James even if he finds a new home. He’ll be 25 in October.

    From Roto — kinda interesting which of Kelly’s former players he goes after. Wasn’t james his most successful RB? I’d take a James at 25 vs Sproles at 30+.

  • Mike J

    Now this? LOL
    I was completely over Jackson when he was Tweeting vacation photos while this new team & coaching staff got their extra mini camp in.
    Is there any doubt at all now that this is going to blow up in Washington’s face this year?
    The offense will be fine without him and perhaps the “team” will be better.

    • anon

      You never went on vacation before starting a new job? You should try it’s actually pretty typical.

      • Mike J

        If I had the reputation (perceived or real) of Jackson and my new team had a new coaching staff who gets an extra week of practice…no, I wouldn’t.
        Besides, Jackson has been on vacation since (or maybe during w/his 3 catch performance) the 1/4 loss to New Orleans.
        There isn’t any doubt in my mind that (even with a change fee) he couldn’t have moved up or down his vacation on the calendar…IF he wanted to.

  • myeaglescantwin

    Hey,, When will the media stop writing about the redskins WR??

    it’s old already.

  • PDidIt

    It appears Drew was stacking on. Thank God he took it to court. Drew said he owed almost 800 thousand, in the end the court ruled it was 500 thousand. It appears Desean was correct in the end. Drew was attempting to fu** Desean out of almost 300 thousand. I hope you get what I am saying. The glass is half full.

  • kstagg

    I almost feel bad for Rosenhaus. Almost.
