Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has just signed a three-year deal worth $24 million dollars, $16 million of which is guaranteed, with the Washington Redskins.
Well it seems that a large chuck of his $5 million dollar signing bonus is already being taken out of his bank account thanks to a ruling that favoured Jackson's old agent Drew Rosenhaus was owed half a million dollars by the wide receiver.
"An arbitrator recently ruled that DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in unpaid loans and fees, according to multiple media reports.
Yahoo Sports’ reported Rosenhaus originally sought $777,793 for 'loans, interest, credit card charges and insurance premiums.' Rosenhaus filed the grievance in June 2013, shortly after he was fired by Jackson, according to reports."
While it is less than the amount that Rosenhaus was initially after, what he will be getting from his former client is more than likely enough to keep him happy.
Jackson is expected to appeal the decision and so is not so forthcoming about handing over that cool half a mill just yet.
