DeSean Jackson was a guest on the most recent taping of the T.Ocho show. During Jackson’s segment, hosts Terrel Owens and Chad Ochocinco talked to the Eagles wide receiver about his contract status.

Jackson explains to them that he signed a four-year deal after he was drafted and that it’s his third year in the league, adding he has one more year left on his deal. However, Jackson openly aired that he’s ready to get paid. He tells the hosts that “they gonna have to do something” and “the way I’m putting it in, something gotta happen baby.”

Jackson has every right to want more money as he has been performing at a very high level ever since he entered the league. However, I don’t think expressing his desire for a new deal on the T.Ocho show is the best way to go about it.

In the clip below, you'll see that Jackson starts off handling things very well. However, when it looks like the interview is going to end without much harm, Jackson adds on the comments about his displeasure.

The show will air in its entirety tonight at 10:00 PM on Versus.
