Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been in the league since 2008. Jackson made a name for himself as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, likely making many NFL fans for life thanks to his big-play ability and flair on the field. In fact, some of Jackson’s biggest fans are some of his opponents in the NFL today- and he has a hilariously savage gesture towards such, er, fans.
“I have been playing against dudes who are like trying to shake my hand and congratulate me and tell me they have been watching me since I was a little kid.” Jackson said. “I’m like, ‘We can save that until after the game. … I am about to whup your ass.’”
That is a very on-brand quote from Raiders wideout DeSean Jackson. Just picture a rookie wide receiver, who looked up to and possibly even modeled their game after Jackson’s, coming up to the veteran wideout to show some respect, only to get savagely trash-talked in return.
That would be a dream come true for many NFL players, who probably imagined sharing the field with Jackson, and yes, possibly beating him on said field too.
It’s probably a cool role for Jackson to play too, as he suits up for his fourth NFL team in the Raiders. It sure seems like the former Eagles relishes the role of the young-buck-turned-old-vet who gets to trash talk all of the rookies who come up to him and ask for his jersey.
The evolution of DeSean Jackson is complete.
