DeSean Jackson is already missing Redskins training camp

You would think DeSean Jackson would be on his best behavior after arriving at the Washington Redskins from the Philadelphia Eagles last week.

The wide receiver made the move to the Eagles' NFC East rivals amidst rumours of ill-discipline, personality clashes and gang affiliation so it would surely have been advisable for Jackson to be out to impress his new employers.

But, with the Redskins able to begin Organized Team Activity a few weeks early due to having a new coach in place for next season, Jackson turned down the opportunity to participate in the voluntary OTAs in favor of a vacation.

While the likes of Robert Griffin III are in attendance, busy learning the ways of Jay Gruden, the wideout chose to continue his plans to holiday at a beachside private villa - posting pictures on Instagram to prove it.

It is known the Redskins had signed off on the vacation so he has not broken any rules.

 But it surely wouldn't have taken much for a multi-millionaire like Jackson to have changed his holiday plans in order to link up with his new team and give himself the best chance of forging relationships with the rest of the roster.
