We’ve officially hit the point with DeSean where he could tweet a picture of himself dressed in drag singing It’s Raining Men at a karaoke bar in Guatemala and I don’t think anyone would even bat an eye. Fashion Police isn’t that far off, actually.

DeSean Jackson posted a faux macho picture with his dogs today in a Tweet I interpreted as: Go ahead, break into my house again. At first blush it seems a little threatening, but that’s until you OH MY GOD THE RED ROCKET. RUFF RUFF RUFF RRRRRAARRR RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF.
Poor guy didn’t expect that thing to end up on Instagram. The pitfalls of social media, I tell ya.
DESEAN JACKSON IS OUT. HE’S A BAD GUY. LIL TERRIO IS A BAD INFLUENCE.
DESEAN JACKSON IS NOT OUT! HE’S NOT A BAD GUY. LIL TERRIO IS STILL A BAD INFLUENCE.
In the out camp, we have slightly-nerdier-looking Jimmy Kimmel, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly, who says that the Eagles have had it – HAD IT! – with Jackson and his irresponsible behavior of… people breaking into his house while he’s away:
For a variety of reasons, mostly financial, Jackson’s days with the Eagles are likely numbered. His salary this year jumps to more than $10 million and remains over $9 million annually through 2016. His lithe body frame doesn’t really fit with coach Chip Kelly’s preference for big bullies. And despite his world-class speed, Jackson isn’t an irreplaceable piece of Kelly’s spread offense, which also features NFL leading rusher LeSean McCoy and rising tight end Zach Ertz.
Although he’s not nearly the malcontent who, by his own admission, handled his 2011 contract dispute with poor judgment and petulance, Jackson remains an enigmatic figure for a head coach who is agitated quickly by me-first behavior.
According to multiple sources familiar with the team’s thinking, two incidents haven’t gone unnoticed by the front office. First, Jackson lobbied for a new contract less than 48 hours after the team’s first-round playoff loss to the Saints. Then shortly thereafter, police in January reported $250,000 in stolen cash and jewelry along with a handgun from the receiver’s South Philadelphia home during a break-in while Jackson was vacationing.
Media reports surfaced this week that the Eagles could be open to trading Jackson or that he is one more slipup away from being released, but they are purely speculative, according to several NFL sources.
Jackson is not close to being cut, and even if he was one misstep away from forcing the Eagles to move him, they most certainly would not release him without getting something in return.
The Eagles do not respond to rumors. It wouldn’t be in their best interest to feed a reporter this sort of information without attribution – as a “team source” – because refuting speculation would be acknowledging it.
But after checking in with almost a dozen sources from around the league, it’s clear the Eagles aren’t interested in dealing the 27-year-old Jackson – not by a long shot.
Look, McLane is the Eagles’ go-to guy when they want to leak a story or give their side. He writes for the big boy paper (a sentiment similar to something Lenny Dykstra once said to Frank Fitzpatrick). So consider me skeptical on the Eagles not commenting on this.* However, I’m still inclined to side with McLane here. Mosher’s argument is essentially that Chip Kelly won’t tolerate a player like DeSean Jackson. But this is the NFL– what DeSean does in his free time, to date, is tame compared to other guys on the team and in the league (you can argue that LeSean McCoy and Jason Peters and Riley Cooper are more destructive off the field). It wouldn’t make much sense if the Eagles wanted to part ways with DeSean because he raps. He also catches deep balls, many of them. And despite all his nonsense, he’s a good player. His biggest crime may be the way-too-heavy filters he uses on Instagram.
*Not saying this is the case with McLane, but this is the way it works, folks. Sources close to the team, familiar with the situation are usually the actual person or team or whatever. They can’t speak on the record, but they need their side out there regardless. It’s really not unethical because the net result is information getting out. It’s just the way this thing works. It’s how your sausage is made. And it can be very delicious.
DeSean Jackson is in the New York-NJ metro area this weekend doing paid appearances for 106 & Park, which I’ve never heard of and airs on BET. He spoke with Jeff McLane of the Inquirer at Media Day yesterday – where DeSean was again hanging with Lil Terrio – and explained the rationale behind showing up:
“You know I wish I was here playing this game,” Jackson said. “Come on, what kind of question is that, bro? You know me better than that.”
Jackson was at the Prudential Center working for 106 & Park, a hip-hop music video show on the BET Network. It is one of several jobs the receiver is performing during Super Bowl week.
“I’m getting some checks like y’all getting checks,” Jackson joked.
Jackson’s South Philadelphia home was burglarized Jan. 11 and more than $100,000 worth of cash and belongings was stolen. Several days before the burglary, and a day after the Eagles season ended, he told reporters that he thought he deserved a new contract.
Just like we all getting checks.
As mentioned, this particular check comes from BET. Last night on 106 & Park, DeSean shared the rules of the game in a segment called Footballology: “A blitz in football is like when a group of homies see one hot chick and they all try to push up on her at the same damn time.”
Sort of like when you’re battling for the heart of an urban model with the Biebs.
There’s a headline I thought I’d never write.
Lil Terrio is at Super Bowl media day today for some reason we don’t understand, and he met up with friend and roomie DeSean Jackson. Terrio stayed with DeSean during Snow Bowl week, again, for reasons we don’t understand.
You’d… almost think Super Bowl media day has nothing to do with the actual game. Almost. Now, where’s Ines Sainz’s's’s's ass? There is it:

We remember D-Jac and Terrio’s time together:
Awwwwww shiiiiiiiiiit 10 mode ya boi D-Jac’s ex str8 turnt in dat Lambo wit da Biebs before his arrest ya herrr meh what it do baby one time !!
Chantel Jeffries, DeSean Jackson’s ex, has taken gold digging to a whole new level, riding around with Biebs in his Lambo… at the time of his arrest!
While she was behind the wheel in the photo, Justin was driving when the police arrived at 4:09 AM, police confirmed to HollywoodLife.com.
Khalil posted a photo of Chantel driving Justin in the Lambo, captioning it “U know bizzle brought that lambo out.” However, she was not arrested, we can confirm.
So, who is Chantel? She’s a model who became extremely popular on Instagram and on the “underground urban model circuit,” according to her bio.
VH1 Basketball Wives star Draya hired Chantel to launch her product lines, Mint-Swim and Fine-A– Girls. She also has been romantically linked to NFL star, Desean Jackson and Justin Combs, Diddy‘s son.
Tough month for DeSean. First he gets neutralized in an NFL playoff game. Then his house gets robbed. And now his ex becomes Kato Kaelin famous by driving around in Bieb’s Lambo the night of his arrest.
You talk about stepping up your game– going from a borderline NFL star with a non-guaranteed contract to THE BIEBS. That is how you gold-dig and become famous. DeSean Jackson will be a headline-grabber for a few more years, maybe, but he’ll probably be broke someday when his rap game fails. But the Biebs? Awwwww no. We’re talking generation-shaping wealth plus an inevitable public implosion that will create ancillary stars the likes of which the world has never seen when it all comes to a screeching halt on a Miami road early one January morning. Boom, instant street cred for Chantel. Well played, sista! WELLLLLLL PLAYED.

He’s going to the Pro Bowl.
The two teams switched roles on Friday. The Eagles announced that wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been added to the roster, which will be divided into teams during a draft conducted by Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, with Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson bowing out.
If the Pro Bowl happens but no one watches it, does it actually happen?
In a stunner of a development, former WWE wrestler Steve Austin tweeted to DeSean Jackson and offered him one of his Fort Knox gun safes – for which Austin is a spokesperson – to store his guns and money:
GIMME A HELL YEAH, that’s brilliant social media marketing right there. And that’s the bottom line, because Stone Cold said so!
