Warren G Calls DeSean Jackson Release "A Scapegoat Situation"

Warren G says DeSean Jackson should consider signing with the Oakland Raiders following release from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Following reports that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was released from his team over what was perceived as alleged gang ties, Long Beach, California rapper Warren G has responded to news of Jackson’s release.

Warren G defended the athlete during an interview with TMZ, stating that Jackson is not responsible for the actions of those he’s associated with. He also shared his belief that the Philadelphia Eagles let Jackson go because they didn’t want to pay him.

"He was born and raised in a rough area, and everyone has friends who are troubled if you grew up where he did,” Warren G said. “This is a scapegoat situation…cause they don’t want to give him a lot of money."

With three years left in his contract, Jackson would have made $30 million over the next three years or $10 million per year.

In regards to a new team for Jackson, Warren G says he should consider the Oakland Raiders, a team he claims “will respect your talents.”

Jackson’s release from the Philadelphia Eagles comes weeks after a picture of Jackson with rappers Nipsey Hussle and Freeway was posted on Instagram. In the picture, Jackson is believed to be throwing a Crip gang sign.

In response to the picture, Jackson released a statement stating that he has never “been part of any gang."

"I am not a gang member and to speculate and assume that I am involved in such activity is reckless and irresponsible,” he said.

    Raiders always end up with former criminals like rapists, gang bangers, women abusers and drug addicts. What DeSean did was trivial, not gangsta enough to be a Raider. Michael Vick and Ray Lewis on the other hand......

    Warren G isn't the owner of the Eagles, therefore who cares what he thinks? It's not the money. It's the potential for controversy that teams don't want to deal with.

    Since when is this nigga an analyst? And since when the Raiders respect its players talents? He might fuck around and get charged with murder if he go down there.
