Jackson confirms firing Rosenhaus

PHILADELPHIA — DeSean Jackson has confirmed that Drew Rosenhaus is no longer his agent.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver says he hasn’t decided on new representation, despite reports he’s leaning toward Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.

“I don’t know right now,” Jackson told reporters Tuesday. “It’s a lot of thoughts. The (reports) are what they are, but coming out of my mouth, I don’t know yet.”

Jackson cited “personal issues” for dismissing Rosenhaus, who negotiated a $51 million, five-year deal for him last March.

Jackson, though, owns a record label and is a hopeful rapper. Perhaps hiring a hip-hop mogul could help his music career.

Keselowski loses 6 points

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR penalized Brad Keselowski and crew chief Paul Wolfe on Tuesday for failing a post-race inspection at Dover.

Keselowski and car owner Roger Penske were each docked six points, and Wolfe was fined $25,000. He was already on probation until the end of the year because NASCAR found illegal parts on the No. 2 Ford at Texas in April.

The loss of points drops Keselowski, the defending Sprint Cup champion, from eighth to 10th in the standings.
