Warning: Strong Language

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was questioned by ESPN's Lisa Salters last night about whether or not he gave his full effort last season while playing in a contract year.

He told Salters, and the national television audience, this: "I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it. I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt -- now I'm just giving it all."

So if he is now giving it his all, what was he giving last year?

Many writers and media outlets posed this same question, and Jackson took offense.

Take a look at what he posted on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon:
