DeSean Jackson's character has been questioned throughout the day on March 28, and that isn't sitting well with former NFL running back Derrick Ward.

After an article written by NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks and A.J. Perez hit the web on Friday, questions about Jackson's character started swirling around. The article mentioned that the Philadelphia Eagles were uncomfortable with the star's alleged relationships with gangs. ESPN's Adam Schefter did post a statement on Facebook from Jackson, and the wideout denied that he was part of a gang.

Shortly after the article hit the Internet, the Eagles announced on Twitter that they were releasing Jackson.

Former NFL running back Derrick Ward took to Twitter to attack the ESPN personalities who questioned Jackson's character (includes some NSFW language):
