Washington Redskins running back DeSean Jackson has hit out at the Philadelphia Eagles for the way they treated him last year.
The 28-year-old scored nine touchdowns in the 2013 season, but he was released at the end of the campaign and subsequently joined the Redskins.
Jackson told ESPN: "When I was released by the Eagles, I feel they tried to paint a picture that definitely wasn't true. It was a slap in the face, coming off one of my best seasons in the NFL.
"The Eagles tried to blow me up. That's cold how they did it. That's why I think they fired me. Have I went to jail? I ain't done none of that."
Some reports suggested that Jackson was released because of his alleged connections to gangs.
