Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson stepped into it this week when he posted some anti-Semitic quotes on social media. He says he didn’t realize how those were interpreted and vowed to take steps to educate himself and work with the Jewish community in Philadelphia.
For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, Pat Ryan and I discussed whether the Eagles should release Jackson or if he should be taken at his word. We also talked about the massive contract Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed and continuing efforts to get the Washington Redskins to change their team name.
“Red Tails,” the nickname for the Tuskegee Airmen, is what the Redskins should change their name to, though reports say that “Warriors” is the current favorite.
By the way, 2012’s Red Tails is currently streaming on Disney+. Got a feeling I’ll be watching that this weekend.
