Buccaneers Reportedly Trade DeSean Jackson to Eagles
JC News|March. 11, 2019
DeSean Jackson has officially landed back on his old squad.
Just hours after Jackson posted on social media that he would not be returning to ​Tampa Bay, the Philadelphia Eagles have landed the veteran wideout in a trade.
Jackson started his pro career in the city of brotherly love when he was selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. D-Jax totaled six years with the Eagles before signing with the Redskins in 2014.
​​In Jackson's return to Philly, he will join Alshon Jeffrey and Nelson Agholor in the receiving corps, adding a deep threat to the Eagles passing attack. The 31-year old hasn't lost much of a step, and still has the speed to take the top off a defense.
In exchange for the veteran, the Eagles will reportedly send a 2019 sixth-round pick to Tampa and get a 2019 seventh-rounder back.
For the ​Bucs, this trade is ideal from a financial perspective. Jackson's departure frees up $10 million worth of cap space and creates no dead money.
