Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson told ESPN The Magazine that he has never been in a gang and that his hand gestures that have been interpreted as gang signs are dedicated to his childhood friends.

In the interview, Jackson denied reports that he is affiliated with gangs but acknowledged he knows people who are in them. He said the hand gestures he uses during games or on social media are not gang-related.
