Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson has offered a $50,000 reward for help finding the people responsible for robbing his house, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Thieves reportedly stole $250,000 cash, $125,000 worth of jewelry and two handguns from the 27-year-old's house.

"DeSean is clearly upset that his home was burglarized while he was out of town on vacation. He has always felt very safe in his community, and it concerns him someone would victimize his place of residence," Denise White, Jackson's publicist, said in a statement.

"He had personal items, jewelry and a small amount of money taken in the burglary, however the amount that has been previously reported is inaccurate."

Jackson's mother discovered that the robbery had taken place at her son's house, which is located approximately one mile away from the Eagles' practice facility.

No signs of a forced entry were discovered, but it's believed that one safe is still missing from the house, while two others had been cracked open.
