Jackson was also asked if he’s still waiting for an explanation for why he was released by the Eagles during the offseason.
“Didn’t you hear? I’m a gangster,” Jackson joked, referencing the NJ.com report that cited Jackson’s alleged ties to gang members as the reason Philadelphia and coach Chip Kelly let him go. “I’m in a gang. That’s why I’m gone.”
Jackson had five catches for 117 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown, in the teams’ first meeting this season, a 37-34 Eagles win in Week 3. Jackson suggested Philadelphia misses his production.
“They’ve still got [Jeremy] Maclin,” Jackson told the Inquirer. “I’m happy for my boy. He’s been dealing all year. But it’s Maclin and that’s all they’ve got.”
(Jackson apparently forgot that rookie Jordan Matthews burned the Redskins for two touchdowns in September.)
Meanwhile, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy engaged in some good-natured trolling by imitating his former teammate on Instagram. According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, McCoy is pretending to be Jackson complaining to former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb about not getting him the ball five years ago.
