The Philadelphia Eagles have just released superstar wideout DeSean Jackson -- and it may have nothing to do with football.
An article posted today (Friday) to NJ.com documents in some detail Jackson's ties to the Crips street gang. It notes that he has been indirectly linked to two shooting deaths in Los Angeles. He's also been spotted in Instagram photos and even on national TV flashing what appears to be the Crips' "C" hand sign.
Jackson had his best year in the NFL in 2013, catching 82 balls for 1332 yards and nine touchdowns.
