DeSean Jackson reiterates that he’s never been a part of a gang

desean-jackson-crips-deangelo-hallIn an interview with ESPN The Magazine,  Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson reiterated that he has never been a part of a gang.

“If I score a touchdown or make a play and my boys at home can see me throwing up the area we’re from, that’s me showing them love,” Jackson said to ESPN The Magazine. “They weren’t fortunate enough to make it where I’m at. All my friends wanted to be in the NFL growing up, but they weren’t able to do that and I was. That doesn’t mean I forgot about them. They’re my boys, I grew up with them, and I’m going to give them love.”

Ok we believe you DeSean, stop throwing up the gang signs anyway.
