DeSean Jackson offering $50K reward after home burglary
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson wants his stuff back, and he's willing to pay $50,000 as a reward for information that leads to a conviction in the burglary of his Philadelphia home, he said in a statement from a spokesperson Sunday night.
Jackson was on vacation when the burglary occurred, the statement said, and police said at least $250,000 in cash and jewelry were taken, in addition to a handgun.
The 27-year-old, who finished with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns this season, signed a five-year, $51 million contract before the 2012 season.
Jackson's statement said that he was upset about the incident but is confident the perpetrator(s) will be brought to justice.
His mother discovered the burglary on Saturday morning and reportedly told police that some of Jackson's friends have access to the home.BANKS: Anticlimatic divisional round leads to marquee final four
