LeSean McCoy didn't see DJax act out against Kelly

LeSean McCoy is still getting asked about why the Philadelphia Eagles decided to pull the plug on their marriage with DeSean Jackson.

Each time the topic comes up, McCoy has a similar version of the same answer: He doesn't know why the Eagles dropped their top wide receiver.

Battista: The DeSean fallout


The sudden end to DeSean

Jackson's tenure in Philly raises plenty of questions. Judy Battista delves into a mystery move. READ

"It's a surprise for sure. Anybody that tells you they're happy about it, I don't know how honest that would be," McCoy said Saturday, according to "It is a surprise. You've heard so much, you don't really know (what's true). Not playing with him is definitely going to be different. Playing against him is really going to be different."

McCoy is aware of the CBS Philly report in which an anonymous source claimed Jackson repeatedly clashed with Chip Kelly and cursed the coach out in front of the team.

"I've never seen that," McCoy said. "I've never seen the two of them get into it. Coach Kelly, the good thing I'll say about him is, he's understanding. If you have an issue or a problem, he seems to always work it out."

Unless, of course, the issue (or problem) is DeSean Jackson.
