DeSean Jackson Skips First Redskins Practice

Just when everybody thought the DeSean Jackson saga was going to quiet down, the receiver ups the ante yet again. 

As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I absolutely could not be more amused.

It seems that ex-Eagles and new Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson has decided to skip the first offseason workouts of the Washington Redskins in order to go on vacation.

This seems like a curious move for a player who went on national television to say that he is a team-first guy, who is simply misunderstood.  Or maybe Jackson just went on the "World-Wide Leader" to get his butt kissed by a joke of a reporter while he tried out his new Steve Urkel look.

Apparently Jackson had a vacation scheduled for this time because he thought he would still be playing for the Eagles.  That all changed when he was released and subsequently signed by the Redskins.  Since Washington has a new head coach in Jay Gruden, they are allowed to start their offseason workouts two weeks before most NFL teams.  It's just too bad they didn't check with D-Jax before they planned the workouts.

Now I must admit that these workouts are "voluntary", but almost every single player attends these workouts.  And you would think that a guy like Jackson, who has something to prove and needs to learn an entirely new offensive system, new terminology and new teammates, would have possibly considered postponing his vacation.

Oh, I'm sure he'll develop an instant chemistry with Robert Griffin III.  You know, because RGIII is such a great leader (unless you ask his current teammates, of course).

And to top it all off, Jackson even posted pictures of himself on vacation.  No wait.......It gets even better.  Apparently Jackson also changed his Instagram handle to "One Ofone".  Honestly, I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

Many of his (probably) new followers were not amused by Jackson's actions.

Good luck with DeSean, Skins fans.  You're going to need it.
