Drew Rosenhaus wants his money back after losing DeSean Jackson.
It was not a a very well-kept secret — the fact that prior to signing a contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles, Jackson was hard up for cash and borrowing money from his then-agent, Rosenhaus. The amount that Jackson borrowed had apparently reached the hundreds of thousands as early as 2011.
Now that Rosenhaus is no longer Jackson’s agent, the former is looking to get his money back — and fast. Rosenhaus has reportedly filed a grievance with the NFL Player’s Association against Jackson, alleging that the Eagles wideout owes him more than than $400,000 in unpaid loans.
According to Yahoo! Sports, took multiple loans out from Rosenhaus between 2009 and 2012, dating back to when Jackson first hired the agent to represent him. Jackson recently fired Rosenhaus as his representation and has not signed with a new agent. The rumor over the last few days has been that Jackson is considering signing with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation Sports.
Jackson signed a five-year deal with the Eagles in 2012 that had a potential value of $48.5 million, so there should at least be some money available to pay Rosenhaus back, even if it’s in an installment plan.
