On the field, DeSean Jackson's first Sunday of the NFL season was a successful one. Rejoining his former team in the Eagles and going against another former team in the Redskins, the veteran caught eight passes for 154 and two scores while exposing Washington in multiple ways.
Off the field, Jackson is continuing to make his impact felt.
Prior to Sunday's game, Jackson sported customized cleats pregame honoring the late Nipsey Hussle. Hussle, a prominent rapper who grew up in the same Los Angeles neighborhood as the receiver, was killed in March.
But, Jackson's determination to honor someone near to his heart isn't stopping there. Jackson will be wearing the custom cleats each game, and plans to auction off each pair and have the proceeds go toward the Nipsey Hussle family foundation. He will also donate money of his own, pledging to match the amount raised by the cleats.
