NFL player Desean Jackson is hosting Super Bowl Week on BET’s 106 & Park all this week. So he’s making sure his wardrobe is tight for his TV gig. The 27-year-old Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver wore a Ron Bass Graffiti leather jacket featuring B&W graffiti on the front and sleeves and colorful graffiti on the back. One thing you won’t see Jackson wearing is a lot of expensive bling. The nimble receiver was robbed of over $325,000 in cash and jewelry when his South Philadelphia home was burglarized 2 weeks ago.
The Philadelphia Eagles hoped Riley Cooper wouldn’t be a distraction on the field, but that lasted until Thursday.
Cooper who was caught on video using a racial slur at a country music concert, exchanged a few shoves with Eagles cornerback Cary Williams at Eagles practice Thursday, the NY Post reports.
A sports blogger says suspended Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper will never suit up in a NFL uniform again. Cooper, 25, is still feeling the fallout from that N-bomb he dropped during a Kenny Chesney concert last week.
Jay Graves of Baarbershopsports.net theorizes that Cooper is done in the NFL because the balance of power flows from the locker room not from the Philadelphia Eagles front office.
This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn’t let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. “I’ll fight every nigger in here,” Cooper said.
Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley’s tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.
The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.
But that wasn’t enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from “all team activities” so he can “seek counseling.”
