Philly Sports Anchor Says DeSean Jackson Wants to Play for Eagles in 2019

The Eagles have some question marks at the wide receiver position in 2019. Nelson Agholor's, Golden Tate's and Mike Wallace's contracts are up at the conclusion of this season. Plus with Mack Hollins not playing a single snap in 2018, there will be questions about if he can come back in 2019 without missing a beat. With that in mind, there is a familiar name popping back up for the millionth time - DeSean Jackson.

On Thursday, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that Jackson wants to end his time in Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers would get $10 Million in cap savings if they  decide to release Jackson and honor his preference of leaving Tampa Bay. It would make sense for them to let him go since he seems disgruntled and is on the wrong side on 30-years-old.

On the same day later in the evening, NBC10's John Clark reported that Jackson is expressing an interest in re-joining his old squad.

Jackson is currently 9th in Eagles history in catches (356), 4th in receiving yards (6,117), and T-9th in TD catches (32).

We already saw earlier this season that Jackson still has some gas left in the tank. Even though he still has some production left in him, he hasn't played a full 16 game season since leaving the Eagles in 2013.

With those injuries taking their tolls plus Jackson just turning 32-years-old, hopefully if would be willing to take a steep pay-cut. He has an $11 Million cap hit in 2018, and is (or was - since he is deciding he wants out of Tampa) projected to earn $10 Million in 2019. Mike Wallace signed a 1-year, $4 Million deal with the Eagles this season, so if he comes to Philadelphia it would likely have to be in the price range.
