REPORT: Bucs Are Shopping DeSean Jackson; Jackson Wants to be Traded to Philadelphia

A reunion in the works?

With the new league year set to kick off this Wednesday, ESPN's Jenna Laine and Tim McManus are reporting that the Buccaneers are actively shopping WR DeSean Jackson. Jackson has told people close to him that his preferred team to be traded to is the Eagles.

The article states that Jackson has already sold his home in Tampa Bay, and if he the Bucs don't find a trade partner, that they'll likely end up releasing the speedy wide receiver.

The Eagles are currently looking for a speedy wide receiver to stretch the field for Carson Wentz. Pending free agent Mike Wallace was supposed to fill that role in 2018, but an ankle injury in Week 2 cost him the rest of his season. Of course if the Eagles want to bring Jackson back for a reunion, the money will have to be right. Jackson has a $10 Million cap hit for the final year of his contract. If the Eagles do end up trading for Jackson, they'll likely want to (basically have to) restructure his contract. If he is released and becomes a free agent, Howie Roseman might throw an offer at him and see if he'll take it.

Jackson currently sits 38th in Eagles history in games played (87), 9th in receptions (356), 6th in receiving yards (6,117), and T-9th in receiving touchdowns (32).
