The Eagles issued a statement earlier Tuesday regarding the anti-Semitic social media posts made by DeSean Jackson. They expressed their disappointment in their receiver, saying, in part, “Regardless of his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful and absolutely appalling.”

The team likely has told him the same.

Jackson has spoken with General Manager Howie Roseman “a lot today,” John Clark of NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com reports. Jackson also is scheduled to speak with owner Jeff Lurie.

It remains to be seen what further action the Eagles might take or require of Jackson.

Jackson apologized for an Instagram post that attributed a quote to Adolf Hitler saying, “the Jews will blackmail America.” He did not indicate in the apology whether he would back up his words with any action.

Meanwhile, Jackson is working out in Tampa with teammate Miles Sanders, based on a video posted by Sanders.

  1. They talk big in the media but I bet behind closed doors it goes like , just lay back for a few weeks desean it’ll blow over … we need you to run fast and catch footballs ! So as to make us more wealthy… when in reality the GUY should be cancelled from ever being remembered for anything other than being a racist… I hear that’s how it works nowadays.

  2. Guy makes a mistake and the expected reaction is that he should lose his job, and potentially his livelihood. Who amongst us has never said something stupid (although perhaps not so visibly) ? If anyone is serious about debate around serious subjects then there needs to be an acceptance that people are going to say things others find stupid and/or offensive, and without the consequences being life changing. No jaw against being wrong. Accept it or accept you don’t have free speech. It’s one or the other.

  3. Not good enough. He needs to be cut. If it was a white man, he would have been cut already. Can’t be a two way street. He has to go.

    Tell that to the former owner of the LA Clippers … guy was forced to sell the team , oh btw he was white

  5. DeSean is a terrible influence and terrible for the locker room there’s is a reason chip kelly got rid of him there is a reason the eagels won the superbowl without him . Anyone that quotes hitler should be banned forever

  6. Agree entirely. That was kind of my point. Don’t care if you’re black or white – you need to be able to talk and debate freely without fear of discovering that you were wrong and that being wrong on a subject changes your life.
    Maybe easier to say (without being knee jerk branded a racist) in the context of a black man saying something many consider to be stupid but the point is relevant regardless of the colour of the speaker.

  7. Not enough others have said less and been drawn through the coals by his brothers. Finally all blinded that all racist remarks come from one race now see it comes from all directions. Accountability and send home.

  8. How long is it going to take for the Eagles to separate themselves from Jackson ?

  9. If Jackson was a white guy posting this filth about a black guy, they would have Drew Brees’d him in a second.

  10. Jackson’s comments don’t surprise at all, it’s who he is..

    never been impressed by him or his gangsta attitude
