League & Media sources also said it was due to gang affiliation, and correct me if I'm mistaken, but where have the Eagles said it was due to work ethic and attitude? They haven't said either or, you're on the same boat as him for justification of Djax's release, nothing official, just "sources".

All of this. It's no way the Eagles had nothing to do with that leaking out. I'm not believing that.
I do think it was part of the reason they let him go but I don't think the Eagles had to leak anything, the media had already been speculating on DJax ever since he throw up hood in that game last year. TMZ, etc. were doing speculative articles on him during the season
He's clearly throwing up a Crip sign in a handful of his pictures (Some with with members from that neighborhood). Regardless if he's an actual member or not, throwing up known gang signs isn't exactly the smartest thing to do if you're a professional athlete.
I agree that the media is horrible for dragging his name in the dirt, but when you give them the ammo they're going to shoot. We all know this.
I agree with Sherman's comments, but once again, if you're clearly throwing the hood up in multiple pics, you can't really get mad at people having assumptions about you being a part of that gang.
