DeSean Jackson: Chip Kelly ruined Eagles, 'bad karma comes back to you'
DeSean Jackson was one of many current and former Eagles players who didn't lose sleep when Chip Kelly was fired five days before the regular-season finale.
So it's not surprising that Jackson would have some unfiltered thoughts on the Eagles' decision to send Kelly packing one game short of his third season.
"I’m a firm believer that bad karma comes back on you," Jackson told TheMMQB.com's Robert Klemko. "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.
"I don’t have any bad words to say about him as far as what he feels he needs on his roster. 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."
Meanwhile, Jackson, who played in just nine games because of a hamstring injury, has been the beneficiary of the Kirk Cousins Franchise Quarterback Tour, hauling in 30 passes for 528 yards (17.6 yards per catch). And unlike the Eagles and Chip Kelly, Jackson's headed to the playoffs.
