Eagles’ DeSean Jackson Won’t be Suspended Over Instagram Posts
It appears the Eagles will not be cutting ties with wide receiver DeSean Jackson after a statement put out by the team on Friday evening.
The Eagles statement on Friday said the team will penalize Jackson for conduct detrimental to the team, but did not mention releasing or cutting ties with him.
Instead the statement suggests that Jackson will continue to educate himself, by supporting his works with actions, and it expressed that they have been encouraged by his desire to educate himself.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jackson met with a group against anti-Semitism and is set to met with a Holocaust survivor as well in an effort to educate himself.
This all started when Jackson posted anti-Semitic messages on his Instagram story on Monday evening when he shared a quote he attributed to Adolf Hitler.
He later apologized in a video, and then again after meeting with Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman.
