    Reported by multiple sources. I wonder.......... oh well no cap space left. Really good WR and I just hope nobody else in the NFCN grabs him.

    Lot's of gang affiliation issues there. He's connected to crip members and 2 murders, was caught flashing crip signs during games this year, and missed several meetings as well as showed an inconsistent work ethic. Even the name for his record label has Crip affiliation in it. For all his talent, I don't want him.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I never knew that. Too bad as he is a very good WR.

    Just saw that a while ago. He wants big time money and he's likely headed for some team with cap space to spare and void at one of their WR positions. He's the kind of downfield streak of light the Raiders might enjoy having. They have all this cap space now that McKenizie has gotten rid of some dead weight deal Al Davis did but nobody wants to play for them. LOL Oh, how the might have fallen.

    "Just Win Baby" seems to have turned into "Just Sign Baby"...................Please!

    Meh. I doubt that had anything do with anything whether it was true or not. The Iggles save cap space and cash and that was the most important thing for them. All the more reason the Raiders should pick him up. I think they all belong to gangs and in Oakland he'd have quite a few new ones to choose from. LOL

    Except that the reports are true...he was interviewed by police for his potential knowledge of two murders, a house in his name was raided in response to the murder, in it titles to his cars, credit card receipts and gun permits from Jersey were found. He has been seen in pictures with known Crip members. It's a nice PR piece, but thats about it.

    He's from that area so...he went to Cal Poly...he'd probably like going home...not sure it would be good for him though.

    Just have a correctly worded contract, and voila! Also, the Eagles are more than likely moving away from DeSean due to the Hernandez case last year, so he probably did nothing that bad.

    Apparently 6 teams have already contacted his agent.

    The best thing the NFL can do keep this guy out of the NFL. He has his chance to become a great player and make a great living yet multiple incidents are all on him being a disruptive team mate. What a waste of talent.

    Problem is, he has committed no crime, his connections to gang members is not a crime in and of itself. But yes, the Eagles cut him because they were afraid of his influence over younger players.

    I think they cut him over several incidents within in the team. The gang connections is not good pr for the team but I believe his attitude and work ethnic is what got him cut.

    Im sure other factors were included as well. But, but part of the reason was because they were concerned about his influence over younger players:
