Default Marketing over Training?

Quote:
Rookie running back Brandon Jackson got on a plane Thursday, but he wasn't bound for Green Bay anticipating his first handoff from Brett Favre and running behind Chad Clifton.

Instead, he was going to Los Angeles to flash his best smile. And he isn't happy about it.

The Green Bay Packers' second-round draft pick from Nebraska should be coming to Green Bay to get an eye-opener at his first full squad minicamp, and then enjoy the spoils - promotions, photographs, fame and money - if and when he ascends the depth chart.

Instead, Jackson is forced to choose the glitz of Hollywood over the grit of Green Bay.

"Brandon said, 'I want to go to the mandatory minicamp. This is with the veterans. I am going to get my shot at working with them,' " Wichard said.

That's BS that the NFL arbitrarily forces this "honor" to the detriment of the player and the team.
