DeSean Jackson, Asante Samuel missing from OTA woohoo maybe jackson and samuel will be fat and out of shape come preseason, and their bodies wont hold up all year long, Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 7, 2010 11:30 AM ET The Eagles reconvened Monday for the final four voluntary practices of the offseason, missing two of their biggest names. Cornerback Asante Samuel was excused for a personal reason, according to the Eagles. (UPDATE: There was a death in Samuel's family.) The team had no official reason for Jackson's absence. Jackson has been the subject of (over)praise for handling his contract situation without skipping any work. It remains to be seen if this absence is merely a warning shot from the wide receiver, a random occurrence, or the first step in a Pay DeSean campaign.
