The home of Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was burglarized this week, Philadelphia police told the Associated Press on Saturday. The burglars made off with off with $250,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry and two handguns, according to Fox-29 in Philadelphia.

Authorities aren't sure when the burglary occurred because Jackson's been out of town. Jackson's mom discovered that the house had been burglarized sometime early Saturday morning and called police.

According to MyFoxPhilly.com, there were no signs of forced entry at the residence and police currently have no suspects. Jackson's mom did tell authorities that other people besides DeSean have access to the home. Apparently some of Jackson's friends also have access to the house.

Jackson's NFL season ended last week when the Eagles lost to the Saints 26-24 on a last-second field goal. Jackson caught three passes for 53 yards in the game. The 27-year-old made headlines earlier this week when he said he wanted a new contract, even though he's only two seasons into a five-year deal.
