DeSean Jackson is pulling out all the stops to not pay super agent Drew Rosenhaus the money he allegedly owes him. According to Jackson, Rosenhaus gave him a Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash in order to rep him, which is kind of against the rules.
Reports TMZ Sports:
DeSean Jackson says his former agent Drew Rosenhaus violated NFL Player’s Association rules by bribing him to sign with his agency back in 2009 with truckloads of cash and a Louis Vuitton bag … this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports.
Jackson filed new court papers in an effort to overturn an arbitrator’s ruling that he owes Rosenhaus more than $500k for failing to repay loans.
In the docs, DeSean says he shouldn’t have to pay Drew a dime because a huge chunk of the cash was given to him to induce DeSean to use D.R. in his next contract negotiation.
Why is that a big deal? Because according to DeSean, it’s a huge violation of NFLPA rules — for which the NFLPA punishment is that DeSean wouldn’t have to repay a single cent.
Jackson fired Rosenhaus as his agent last year and says he received the cash-stuffed Louis just after midnight on Nov. 9, 2009. Worth noting is that Terrell Owens sued Rosenhaus last year for basically offering him horrible financial advice. Is it us or is this story so crazy that it must be true?
