DeSean Jackson Jumps off Balcony into a Pool, Because That’s Not a Bad Idea

Jun 20, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT


I’m generally of the opinion that arguments starting with “Athletes shouldn’t do X” (flamenco dancing, for example) are a little overblown.

But when you’re DeSean Jackson, and your entire career is built on your raw athleticism, maybe…just maybe…jumping off a balcony and into a pool is a bad idea. Because maybe…just maybe…it’s a bad idea for anyone not interested in cracking their skull open.

Then again, based on whatever sound DeSean’s making at the end of the video, it’s possible the damage has already been done.

E, your thoughts?

    You can add this to the overblown list.

      Yeh, he can jump off balconies, but can’t return kicks, something he is paid to do. A real oganization would have cut his arse the second he quit his contract year: HIS CONTRACT YEAR! So then he gets his money, but dedcides he wants to be a rapper, quits on his team again, and fires his agent the man who got him his money despite quitting on his team. THIS AND DESEAN ARE AN ENTIRE JOKE. CUT HIM NOW; BEFORE HE MAKES A FOOL OFF THE ORGANIZATION, AND HE LOSES HIS ONE DIMENSION SPEED. Pittsbirgh cut Plax and Holmes; how many super bowl rings do they have ?

    Too bad the pool was filled with water.

    Did it take anyone else a while to figure out the other guy is jumping in the pool too, and not just standing there on the side of the pool in a crazy awkward pose

      You can tell by the blue light reflected on the soles of his feet.
      Can we assume it’s drugs or could it be a naturally exuberant personality?

    “And you can tell ProFootballTalk that my last words were… I’m on drugs!”

    Maybe, he is training to catch a ball over the middle of the field. I know he has a problem with this.

    Should have landed on the deck then maybe he will take his profession a lot more serious just another punk in my opinion.
