Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson’s south Philadelphia home was broken into, and he was robbed of $250,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry and two semi-automatic handguns, according to

According to the report, Jackson was not home when the burglary occurred and his mother discovered the theft on Saturday morning. Jackson is in the middle of a five-year, $48 million deal and will make $10.25 million in 2014.

Here is a portion of’s report:

"The source says Jackson's mother went upstairs and found the place ransacked sometime overnight, and called police Saturday morning.

“They say one of his safes was taken and two others were cracked open.

“We're told they got away with $250,000 worth of cash, $125,000 in jewelry and two semi-automatic handguns.”

However, there were no signs for forced entry, according to the report. Jackson’s mom reportedly told police her son’s friends had access to his home, but the second floor is always locked.

Obviously, somebody found a way to unlock the door.

The only good thing about this story is Jackson was not hurt during this burglary. He also seems to be taking it in stride as he later posted about the incident on Instagram. 

"The things they do 4 a lil paper !!" Jackson wrote. "Keep a smile on my face God Plan 4 me bigger then that !! Know that"

 Hopefully, for Jackson, he learns it is probably not safe to leave $375,000 in cash and jewelry, or two accessible handguns, in his home.
