DeSean Jackson kicked Drew Rosenhaus to the curb recently, but now one of the NFL’s so-called “superagents” is firing back. According to Yahoo! Sports, Rosenhaus has filed a grievance with the NFLPA stating that Jackson owes him more than $400,000 in unpaid loans.

Rosenhaus has stated that, since bringing Jackson under his wing in 2009, the Philadelphia wide receiver has taken multiple loans and failed to pay back what he owes.
Rosenhaus managed to negotiate a five-year deal with the Eagles in 2012 that had a potential value of $48.5 million, so it’s not exactly as if Jackson is hurting for money.
One of the biggest reasons Jackson’s decision has been making headlines recently is because of the company who is seen as the frontrunner to be his new representation. Reports have indicated that Jackson wants to join Jets quarterback Geno Smith and Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz at Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s newly minted agency.
Jackson currently remains without representation as he has yet to decide on a new agent.
It will be interesting to see how his search for new representation plays out while his old agent seeks to be compensated for the money he reportedly lent him.
