Though most of the drama surrounding DeSean Jackson involves his change from the Eagles to the Redskins, there's background drama surrounding his relationship with his former agent Drew Rosenhaus. And now Jackson's reportedly filed papers claiming Rosenhaus bribed him to sign on as a client.

TMZ reports Jackson alleges Rosenhaus gave him a Louis Vitton bag stuffed with cash.

Back in June of 2013, Jackson parted ways with Rosenhaus, his longtime agent. Rosenhaus then filed a grievance claiming Jackson still owed him $400,000. An arbitrator ruled -- after Jackson signed a new deal with the Redskins -- Jackson was required to repay Rosenhaus.

These filings TMZ acquired are apparently part of Jackson's "effort to overturn the arbitrator's ruling." 

According to TMZ, Jackson says "part of the money he received from Drew came IN CASH -- stuffed inside a Louis Vuitton bag he received just after midnight on Nov. 10, 2009."

If Jackson's allegations are true, Rosenhaus could be in trouble with the NFLPA. It's against NFLPA rules for agents to bribe or induce players to sign with them.
