Remember all the drama with Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson‘s exit from the Philadelphia Eagles? Former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly’s three-year reign was filled with turmoil.
As Washington gets ready to face the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs Sunday, DJack finally weighed in on Kelly during an interview with Robert Klemko of MMQB.
“I’m a firm believer that bad karma comes back on you,” Jackson said. “When you ruin a team like that, you do things to peoples’ families, you release people, you trade people, you get rid of good players who build something with the community, with the fans, with the kids—to have a guy come in and change up the team like that, I just believe in karma.”
Jackson kept his person feelings to himself, but added:
“I don’t have any bad words to say about him as far as what he feels he needs on his roster,” Jackson explained. “But the guys that were on that roster created something special, from Jeremy Maclin to LeSean McCoy to Trent Cole to Todd Herremans and myself and Brandon Boykin; it goes on and on and on. When we were there we were a brotherhood. So for everyone to go their separate ways and to see how it all ended up, it’s a very sad thing.”
The proof is in the pudding Washington has gone 3-1 against Kelly’s Eagles and headed to the playoffs while Chip Kelly is looking for a job and the Eagles are already on vacation.
