In some precincts, teams are surprised by guys who are able to practice during OTAs.

In Washington, they can’t be surprised by one of the guys who isn’t.

Via Tarik El-Bashir of CSNMidAtlantic.com, wide receiver DeSean Jackson wasn’t on hand for today’s work.

This one gets the trusty #asexpected hashtag, because Jackson has never been what you’d call a regular attendee during the offseason.

The 29-year-old Jackson only played nine games last year because of injuries, and is carrying a $9.25 million cap number in the final year of his deal.

But Washington seems intent on hanging onto him, to go with Pierre Garcon and first-round pick Josh Doctson this year. Quarterback Kirk Cousins was recently bragging about his many targets, but he’s short one today.
