DeSean Jackson is coming closer to checking the next box on the “diva receiver to-do” list: Refuse to talk to reporters.
Jackson isn’t happy with the fact that the media has given his words their plain meaning, as he said on Twitter in the wake of his interview with ESPN in which he admitted that he was holding back to protect himself last season.
“I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it,” Jackson said Monday, in an interview with Lisa Salters. “I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt — now I’m just giving it all.”
And here’s what Jackson said Tuesday.
The Media love twisting my damn words up .. An they always wondering why I don't wanna talk 2 they ass .. That shit is un - professional—

We’re not sure how or why his words were twisted. Maybe he’ll eventually elaborate.
Unless he fears his words will be twisted.
Then again, it’s possible that we’re twisting his words by saying that he’s claiming the media twists his words.
I suddenly have a headache. I wonder if Jim Harbaugh has any extra aspirin.
