The Eagles finally did what we've been waiting over a month for.

They have parted ways with DeSean Jackson.

In a simple statement released by the team Friday afternoon they made it official:

"After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today."

No further comments have been made by either Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman nor Chip Kelly. With the media firestorm that's been created with unanswered questions, expect the team to comment officially in a press conference environment in the near future.

The release and team statement did come after an article written on cited LAPD sources among others, that indicated Jackson was allegedly involved in two separate homicides where gang related activity was suspected.

Sources later told ESPN that Jackson was released due to a poor work ethic and attitude issues, not in response to the report.

The Sportsbash provided wall-to-wall coverage of the Jackson release today with interviews including: Sal Paolantonio, Chris Mortensen, Barrett Brooks and more.
