WR Jackson heading back to Eagles, per sources

  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded De Sean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports

It appeared as if the Bucs wanted to keep DeSean Jackson just last week, but those rumors came to an abrupt end today when he was traded to the Eagles.

According to Jenna Laine of ESPN, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are actively looking to deal disgruntled wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

In addition to Jackson, the Eagles get a seventh-round draft pick in 2020, while a 2019 sixth-round pick heads to the Buccaneers, a source told Mortensen.

Jackson was owed $10 million - none guaranteed - in the final year of a three-year contract he signed with the Bucs before the 2017 season.

Laine goes on to state in her report that Jackson has a preferred place to land: his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles as he wishes to play for a team that he sees as a contender.

Last month, new Bucs coach Bruce Arians had a long sit-down with Jackson, a conversation Arians said at the National Football League scouting combine "couldn't have gone better".

The trade can not be made official until 4 p.m. Wednesday.

This start is only somewhat fresh, as the receiver spent the first six years of his career in an Eagles uniform. They would gain $10-million on the cap if the trade of Jackson is completed.

Jackson's contract is reportedly worth $30 million over three years.

Jackson was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week in a cost-cutting move but has quickly found a home in Philadelphia. The Eagles also are expected to add a running back and a linebacker to help alleviate the expected departures of Jay Ajayi and Jordan Hicks, respectively.
