DeSean Jackson, Eagles Have Mutual Interest

DeSean Jackson, Eagles Have Mutual Interest

The trade will include the Eagles reworking Jackson's contract.

The Buccaneers had been shopping DeSean Jackson all day according to the buzz on the street and now they have found a landing spot, shipping the receiver to the Eagles according to a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Jackson asked to be traded last October, presumably to Philadelphia. Jacksonville cut Jackson to avoid paying him $13 million this year.

Jackson himself then confirmed his pending departure later Monday. Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the veteran defensive tackle is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles soon that will be worth $30 million. That wasn't the only way he displayed his excitement though. Naturally, being that he's 32-years-old without any significant postseason success, he wanted to land on a team that's considered to be playoff contenders.

Hopefully, Jackson and Wentz can get their rhythm down and post those Madden stats in a real game.

DeSean Jackson is coming back home, as the LA native is returning to the franchise that originally drafted him out of Cal. We'll see how much the new No. 10 can make an impact on Sunday's this time around.
