NFC East: DeSean Jackson Drops Rosenhaus, Won’t Confirm Jay-Z Rumor
PHILADELPHIA (CBSDC/AP) — DeSean Jackson has confirmed that Drew Rosenhaus is no longer his agent.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver says he hasn’t decided on new representation, despite reports he’s leaning toward Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
“I don’t know right now,” Jackson told reporters Tuesday. “It’s a lot of thoughts. The (reports) are what they are, but coming out of my mouth, I don’t know yet.”
Jackson cited “personal issues” for dismissing Rosenhaus, who negotiated a $51 million, five-year deal for him last March.
Jackson, though, owns a record label and is a hopeful rapper. Perhaps hiring a hip-hop mogul could help his music career.
“I don’t know, what do you think?” Jackson said. “I don’t know, man. Might be.”
In response to his dismissal, Rosenhaus has filed a $400,000 grievance against the wide receiver over outstanding loans according to a Yahoo report.
Jackson and the Eagles will open their season on Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins.
