Eagles WR DeSean Jackson apologized Saturday for using a gay slur on Sirius XM radio.

"In a recent radio interview a caller got really confrontational with me. I got very heated with the caller, took it a bit too far and did not mean to offend anybody. I meant no disrespect and a better choice of words was needed," Jackson said through a spokesman, phillysportsdaily.com reported.

Jackson said the slur on June 30 on the "All Out Show" on a hip-hop channel on Sirius XM radio.

In his third NFL season, Jackson had 1,056 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
