After being released by the Philadelphia Eagles, wide receiver DeSean Jackson received a big pay day from the Washington Redskins -- a three-year, $24 million contract with $16 million guaranteed. Unfortunately for Jackson, he may need to set aside some of that money in order to pay back to former agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Jackson fired Rosenhaus last spring in favor of signing with Joel Segal, which led to a grievance against Jackson from the NFL Players Association.

Now, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Arbitrator Roger Kaplan has ruled that Jackson owes Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.

The grievance initially claimed Jackson owed more than $700,000, so the receiver did get a bit of a break.

Once the grievance is settled and Jackson pays Rosenhaus back his money, he will be able to put his focus back to football and work on getting familiar with his new Redskins teammates.

Last season with the Eagles, Jackson hauled in 82 catches. He was also able to record a career-high 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns, but that wasn't enough to win Chip Kelly over.
