Michael Vick and Andy Reid started the speculation that DeSean may not show for the first day. While the practice is closed to the media, Jeff McLane of Philly.com has learned DeSean is not in attendance.
There was some hope that the star wideout may come in early this morning to avoid the media frenzy that is check in day at Lehigh. DeSean was unhappy with his contract last season but did not hold out or cause any disruption in the locker room.
While Jackson has made multiple Pro-Bowls, his salary for this season stands at only $565,000. He will be fined $30,000 dollars for each day he is absent from camp.
Meaning if Jackson were to hold out the whole camp he would, in theory, owe the Eagles money at the end.
