PHILADELPHIA — Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the burglary of his Philadelphia home.

A statement from a spokeswoman for the receiver said Sunday the burglary happened while Jackson was out of town on vacation.

Police say at least $250,000 in cash and jewelry was taken from the home, along with a handgun. Jackson’s statement says a small amount of money was taken and stolen items make up the bulk of the loss.

The statement says Jackson is upset about the break-in but confident police will find those responsible.

According to reports, there was no sign of forced entry. Jackson’s mother discovered the apparent burglary on Saturday morning and told police that some of Jackson’s friends had access to the house.

Jackson was the Eagles’ leading receiver this season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. He signed a five-year, $51 million contract before the 2012 season.

Information from ESPN.com’s Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan contributed to this report.
