WR Jackson heading back to Eagles, per sources


The Eagles will send a 2019 sixth-round pick to the Buccaneers in exchange for Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

He has one year left on his current contract and has expressed some frustration with Tampa Bay's offense. He is set to earn $10 million in 2019, with no guaranteed money remaining. As the Green Bay Packers were another team that was in on acquiring Jackson, he ultimately chose to sign with the Eagles on a three-year deal, which is worth $30 million total.

The trade between the Eagles and the Buccaneers won't become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. Also used extensively as a punt returner early in his career, he took four punts back for touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Eagles. According to the report, a reunion with the Eagles is Jackson's preferred destination, but he can't force his way there if he's not released.

However, the Bucs say they have not released Jackson, nor have they informed him that he will be released.

The DeSean Jackson era in Tampa Bay appears to be coming to a close.

Last year, after Winston missed Jackson on five of eight targets in a win over the 49ers, then head coach Dirk Koetter sat both players down to watch film of the game. He caught just 91 passes for 1,442 receiving yards and seven touchdowns over two seasons.

The Eagles lacked a deep threat in 2018 after they lost Mike Wallace for the season in Week 2.
