Warren G

Eagles Did DeSean Jackson Dirty

He's No Gang Member

The Philadelphia Eagles used allegations about DeSean Jackson having gang connections as an excuse to get out of paying him big money -- this according to Warren G ... one of DJ's hometown supporters.

Warren tells TMZ Sports DeSean is the same kid the Eagles drafted in 2008 and he's NEVER brought any negative energy to the locker room. He also added ... all the talk of gang ties is "bull****!"

The rapper -- who grew up in the same part of Long Beach as DeSean -- says it's unfair to hold Jackson responsible for associates' actions, saying ... "He was born and raised in a rough area, and everyone has friends who are troubled if you grew up where he did."

Warren seemed to be offering an explanation for the photo of Desean throwing a Crip gang sign last month in Philly -- and he believes the Eagles viewed this as a chance to cut their #1 receiver and costs.

"This is a scapegoat situation ... cause they don’t want to give him a lot of money."

It's not like DJ wasn't earning his cash -- the Pro Bowler put up career best stats last year -- but the Eagles will reportedly save about $10 million this year by cutting him.

DeSean had 3 more years and about $30 mil left on his contract.

As for where DJ ends up playing next ... Warren suggests he "come to a Cali team like the Raiders where they will respect your talents."

The "Regulator" has spoken.

The man is an adult and the team had every right to say bye bye when there are photos of him flashing gang signs. The man lost a lot of money for being stupid. The NFL could ban him from playing too. Don't think the Payers Association has a case when there are these photos. All players must sign a moral clause not to put the league in a bad light. Flashing gang signs could be a reason for banning a player.

Let's see he's been with the Eagles since 2008 how many championships have they won with him? Maybe they woke up and decided he sucks.

Why would a team release a star over money? I'm sure they would rather have him. If he's not a banger then he shouldn't be flashing gang signs a glamorising gangs to his young fans and teammates.

Nice to see Warren G is still alive. To all the morons out there repeating what other morons on social media are saying, try reading the actual news story that started the ball rolling. The LAPD is the source on Jaccpot's gang connections, not the franchise. What employer is going to pay someone 10 million to miss meetings, take plays or whole games off, argue with coaches and teammates and now this? Come on people.

Wow Desean Jackson took a picture with fans and people he grew up with now he is a thug and a gang member all of a sudden. Has Desean ever gotten in major trouble since he joined the Eagles team the answer is NO. I'm no longer a Eagle supporter after Riley Cooper was caught using the N word and he wasn't cut but they cut ties with Desean Jackson over a picture that doesn't prove he is in any gang.

There are very few things in the world I hate more than rap and these so called gangsters, but this is total BS. Two years ago, the eagles paid this guy over 50 million. They knew who he was then and it didn't bother them. This is just their excuse and it stinks a little of racism
