This may be a few days old, but it is worth bringing up that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was risking injury by jumping into a pool from a balcony.

When an athlete is paid millions of dollars, one would think they are told by the team not to do anything that would risk serious injury. One would think that athletes would have the common sense to not do anything that would put their careers at risk.

Jackson is one of the best receivers on the Eagles roster and possibly one of the best in the league. When a players career is made possible due to the athleticism they have, it would be a bad idea for them to risk everything. 

It would not be surprising if the Eagles front office and head coach Chip Kelly talked to Jackson after they learned of what he did.
