When DeSean Jackson was released from the Philadelphia Eagles, many speculated that it was due to his gang ties. Well, now coach Chip Kelly is confirming what the team has said all along.

According to Pro Football Talk, Kelly said that he had no personality conflicts with Jackson while he was on the team. He said the main reason for his release was because of the overall plans for the team.

When there were no offers for the receiver, the Eagles decided to release him. It had nothing to do with his reported gang ties.

Kelly told the New York Post that they wanted to go in a different direction, saying, “It had nothing to do with any article. Purely football.”
