Todd Herremans was a guest of Steve Wyche on NFL.com's "cover 2" podcast and was asked about the rumors that DeSean Jackson could be "losing the locker room" as a result of his contract situation. Herremans says that's not the case.

"A lot of people might look at DeSean and think he's very selfish, but he's not. DeSean is one of the best teammates you can have. There's a lot going on outside of the actual game for him this year that I don't know the ins and outs of, but I don't really think he's in trouble of losing the locker room."

The rumor initially came from one of Pro Football Talk's many anonymous "sources with knowledge of the situation." Despite what his anonymous source says, the fact is that players support each other in these contract disputes nearly 100% of the time. And with the union vs ownership struggle they've all just went through, it's probably doubly true now.
