Looks like DeSean Jackson has moved beyond team asset and into the realm of civic treasure?
The Washington Post says D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray praised new Redskin/former Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson at a fund-raiser this week: “I want to thank the Philadelphia Eagles for making the dumbest mistake,” Gray said.
Not everybody agrees. Sports Illustrated has the following from still-eagle LeSean McCoy:
“The whole DeSean Jackson thing, that helped out, to be honest, in making all the other guys aware,”McCoy stated during a post-practice moment. “It’s all possible. They’ll cut one of your best guys if (he’s) not buying in. On any team — any team — you look at that, and as a player, you can look at it from so many different sides, but no matter how good you are, you gotta follow these guidelines. And if you don’t, you could be gone. … You gotta buy in.” (Washington Post/SI)
