Eagles player, Curtis Marsh is calling DeSean Jackson’s recent departure from the Philadelphia Eagles a huge loss.
Marsh told HipHollywood exclusively while on the green carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Draft Day that DeSean Jackson was truly an incredible athlete.
“I hate to see DeSean go because he’s been here my first three years in the league with Philadelphia, hes always been one of the biggest stars on the team and he is one of the best in the league,” the cornerback explained.
“I feel like the guy worked really hard every single day and it’s part of the business. I hate to see him go. He will be a very hard player to replace, one of a kind player. I wish him luck wherever he is right now in Washington and I know he is going to ball out.”
Last week, the Eagles announced that they were releasing Jackson and according to a source, the decision was based partly on some of Jackson’s “off-field behavior.”
“After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson,” the team posted via Twitter. “The team informed him of his release today.”
There are reports that the 27-year-old wide receiver had some affiliation with Los Angeles gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010. Reports of Jackson’s gang affiliation drew some “concern” for the organization.
“I don’t know anything about that,” Marsh told HipHollywood when asked about the reported gang connection. “To my knowledge, DeSean has always been a hard working football player just like everybody else. When he was in the locker room he was one of us and I never heard anything different.”
Jackson will start working out with the Redskins next week and according to reports, Washington is excited about their new addition. “A guy I absolutely hated playing against for eight years and a guy that hurt my teams countless times,” nose tackle Barry Cofield told ESPN. “So I was very excited getting him.”
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
