Philadelphia Eagles Player Curtis Marsh Jr: “I Hate To See DeSean Jackson Go”



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.”


Could There Be A “Black Panther” and “Luke Cage” Crossover In The Works?



With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.

The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.

“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”

But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”

Meanwhile when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told “I mean, because it would be, like, OK. T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”

In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.

“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
