DeSean Jackson, now with the Washington Redskins after being cut by the Eagles last month, owes his former agent Drew Rosenhaus over $500,000 in unpaid loans and agent fees, according to an arbitration ruling in a case heard under the NFL Players Association's guidance.

Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports has the story, and tweeted out some of the details:

Jackson is currently represented by Joel Segal, whom he signed with after parting ways with Rosenhaus in 2013. Rosenhaus, not Segal, negotiated Jackson's 5-year, $51 million extension with the Eagles in 2011.

More from Getlin:

Jeff McLane of the Inquirer reports that, per Jackson's spokesperson, the former Eagles wideout plans to appeal the decision.
