Richard Sherman: DeSean Jackson and I can’t change where we’re from

I’m on the record as skeptical about whether Washington signing DeSean Jackson is a great idea, but I’ve been arguing since the day the Eagles cut him that the insane “gang ties” smear job he received was completely unfair. Good to see Richard Sherman, who knows something about being judged based on where/how you grew up, stand up for Jackson here.

Now let’s just hope for success on the field and an atypical-for-this-franchise lack of drama off the field.
