Just a hunch: If the 49ers hire Chip Kelly as their next coach, it’s unlikely that former Cal star DeSean Jackson will join him in San Francisco.
Jackson, now playing for Washington, told the MMQB.com that Kelly’s firing by the Philadelphia Eagles was karma. “I’m a firm believer that bad karma comes back on you,” Jackson said in the article that came out Friday.
The Eagles released Jackson after Kelly’s first season in Philadelphia in 2013. The former Golden Bear, who caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns that season, said he thought the Eagles ran a “smear campaign” against him.
Kelly had back-to-back 10-win seasons in his first two years with the Eagles after being hired from Oregon, but Philadelphia was 6-9 this season when he was let go.
“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,” Jackson told The MMQB.com.
