Did the Eagles launch a campaign to smear the reputation of DeSean Jackson after his release?

Did the Eagles try to kill the career of DeSean Jackson?

DeSean Jackson has his own show now on television trying to paint a better picture of his background and lifestyle. This comes shortly after having many attacks on him from media outlets claiming he was a gang member and a bad guy. According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Jackson accused the Philadelphia Eagles of launching a “smear campaign” against him in 2014, the year the team decided to move on from the player who arrived as a second-round pick in 2008.

“I was at the top of the top. And then I got released,” Jackson said early in the debut of DeSean Jackson Home Team. “It was a smear campaign. Things media said about me, I bet you could say that about the majority of people in the NFL. I got a second chance to play in the NFL and I’m proving I’m one of the best receivers in the game.”

Last April, the NFLPA said it was looking into whether the Eagles smeared Jackson, but there never was a specific finding that the Eagles did. Jackson continued to be convinced that they did.

“When I was released by the Eagles, I feel they tried to paint a picture that definitely wasn’t true,” Jackson said during the show. “It was a slap in the face, coming off one of my best seasons in the NFL. . . . The Eagles tried to blow me up. That’s cold how they did it. . . . Have I went to jail? . . . I ain’t done none of that.”

Now Jackson is trying to clear his name by showing the world he is a good person and does many things for the community.  What do you think America, did the Eagles try to tarnish his reputation?
