DeSean Jackson shows up for OTAs

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson showed up for organized team activity (OTA) practices Monday, per a picture posted on the team’s Twitter account.
Jackson had stayed away from the team for the first two weeks of OTA practices, which are voluntary. Jackson had also volunteered to stay home for parts of May and June work in previous seasons as well.
The Redskins, understandably, have to be anxious to see Jackson on the field. Expectations are high, and with quarterback Kirk Cousins likely to play under the one-year franchise tag and Jackson carrying a $9.25 million salary cap number in the last year of his contract, it’s a big year for a lot of reasons.
Jackson, 29, is entering his third season with the Redskins. Injuries limited him to nine games and a career-low 30 receptions last season, but he’s still one of the league’s most dangerous deep threats when healthy.
The Redskins are starting their final week of OTAs and have a mandatory minicamp next week before breaking until training camp.
