Chip Kelly says he never had a problem with DeSean Jackson

Everyone has been criticizing DeSean Jackson quite a bit since  a report came from  Well today Chip Kelly touched base about the DeSean Jackson situation. had quite a good conversation with the Eagles head coach.

“It has nothing to do with anything that was ever written in a newspaper article or any off-field behavior with him,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly told at the team’s 18th annual Playground Build on Monday. “DeSean was great in the year that I had him. It was just a decision that we made as a team that a lot of teams make at that point in time.” 

Kelly was asked why the team waited so long to address the media in the aftermath of the controversial decision to cut Jackson, who had a career-high 1,332 yards receiving last season. 

“Did I have a press conference when we released Jason Avant or Patrick Chung?” Kelly told “That’s just not the way I am. I’m not gonna have a press conference when we release players from our organization. I’ve never felt that way.” 

Despite an report linking Jackson to friends in gangs in California, the Eagles claim that never factored in their thought process. This was a simply a football decision, according to the Eagles. 

“I’ve never had one issue with DeSean,” Kelly told “I’ll say that publicly. He never yelled at me. I never, never yelled at him on the practice field. I don’t know where that came from.”
