Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report mentioned today that many people around the NFL believe the DeSean Jackson signing will end up imploding down in Washington with the Redskins.
“The word around the league…people really think that this situation is going to completely blow up,” said Freeman. “It’s hard not to agree with that. It’s hard not to think that may not happen because he has blown teams up. He blew up the Eagles a little bit. So that’s the possibility. So teams think when he gets to Washington…they might be short term progress and short term explosiveness. But they think DeSean Jackson is not a team guy. And that’s a locker room that needs some help. Not a whole not of veteran leadership. So it’s right that league observers think for a complete implosion. I hope they’re not right. I hope they’re wrong. I hope that things work out.”
It certainly seems like Jackson still doesn’t get it.
I understand Jackson didn’t want to cancel his pre-planned vacation, but if you want to do what’s best for your team and not yourself, you’ll reschedule the vacation. And he didm’t.
