DeSean Jackson clashed with Donovan McNabb, but it had nothing to do with how many times he was targeted.
While a guest on the “I Am ATHLETE” podcast with LeSean McCoy, Brandon Marshall, and Adam “Pacman” Jones, Jackson broke down the relationship and how it went sour.
It all started around his 2009 Pro Bowl selection as a punt returner and wide receiver.
“When the ballots came out and they found out that I was the first player in NFL history to get elected to start in the Pro Bowl for two positions, my starting quarterback tells Michael Vick, ‘Damn, I don’t think he should’ve got that. He shouldn’t have deserved that,'” Jackson said, via TMZ. “Like, you’re telling another quarterback, that your receiver – that you throw to, your receiver – that he didn’t deserve that.”
Jackson was phenomenal that season as he hauled in 62 catches for 1,156 yards and nine touchdowns. He also returned 29 punts for 441 yards and two scores.
“That was crazy, bro,” said McCoy, who was on that team as well.
Jackson added that McNabb is “one of the most cheapest, richest motherf–kers you could know. … He’d make you pay for everything.”
He did say they are “cool” now.
