DeSean Jackson has found a happy home in Washington.

DeSean Jackson did not get along with Chip Kelly when he was part of the Philadelphia Eagles, as he was ultimately released after putting up a career-best season, and there are probably many reasons for that. 

Whatever they may be, Jackson is not alone, as other players have offered blunt assessments of the culture Kelly created in Philly, describing him as a "dictator" and not openly listening to feedback from players. It ended with Kelly being fired last week.

Jackson, who seems to have found a happy home with the Washington Redskins and is preparing to play the Green Bay Packers this weekend in the playoffs, was asked about Kelly’s firing this week in an interview with The MMQB and offered his honest thoughts. From Robert Klemko’s piece:

I’m a firm believer that bad karma comes back on you. When you ruin a team like that, you do things to peoples’ families, you release people, you trade people, you get rid of good players who build something with the community, with the fans, with the kids — to have a guy come in and change up the team like that, I just believe in karma. I don’t have any bad words to say about him as far as what he feels he needs on his roster. But the guys that were on that roster created something special, from Jeremy Maclin to LeSean McCoy to Trent Cole to Todd Herremans and myself and Brandon Boykin; it goes on and on and on. When we were there we were a brotherhood. So for everyone to go their separate ways and to see how it all ended up, it’s a very sad thing.
