Everything is now clear…as mud. I don’t know if he really talked to Chip or what was said, but don’t get your hopes up for there to be some resolution. Never say never, but it just seems highly unlikely at this point.
Here is Les Bowen on Howie Roseman’s handling of DeSean questions yesterday. Howie would not address the topic and wouldn’t even throw a generic denial to the media.
“He’s still under contract. For us, until there’s anything to report on our players, that’s where we are right now,” Roseman said.
As one NFL coach said, “There has to be something there we don’t know.”
NFL sources have indicated that the Eagles decided to move on from Jackson after his South Philadelphia home was burglarized in early January.
Jackson, who was away at the time of the burglary, told police that $200,000 in cash was stolen as well as a 9mm handgun and jewelry valued at about $125,000.
There were no signs of forced entry, police said, though security cameras in the house had been tampered with. Police said they have nothing pointing toward Jackson’s doing anything wrong or that he filed a fraudulent report.
“We have no indication of any type of foul play or misrepresentation on his part,” said Lt. John Stanford, a department spokesman. “We are treating this as a burglary, and there is no indication that it’s anything different.”
Back to the burglary. Is something more going on there than we know? Sounds like the Eagles might think so.
We’ll see what rumors get kicked up today. Does SF really want DeSean? How about the Jets or Raiders? Was DeSean on the grassy knoll in Dallas? Another day, another twist I’m sure.
Chip Kelly will meet with the media on Wednesday morning (today was AFC coaches). I wonder what Kelly might be forced to talk about…
