DeSean Jackson traded to Eagles

  • Malik Jackson had 18 sacks in three seasons with the Jaguars

Philadelphia drafted Jackson in the second round in 2008.

The Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of decisions left to make after a successful start to the free agency period, with one of the biggest questions surrounding the future of Nelson Agholor.

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.

This would be the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract. He played six seasons with the Eagles, earning three Pro Bowl nods in his time there before a nasty divorce sparked by then-coach Chip Kelly.

Jackson was released in 2014 following an NJ Advance Media report about the wide receiver's off-the-field issues.




Kevin O'Donnell of Fox13 reports that releasing Jackson gives Tampa Bay an additional $10 million in cap space.

On Monday, Jackson took to Instagram to say goodbye to Tampa. Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick swapped the quarterback job multiple times this past season, leading to inconsistent targets for Jackson.

The Eagles lacked a deep threat in 2018 after they lost Mike Wallace for the season in Week 2. The team first tried to fill that hole with Torrey Smith in 2017.

In 12 games last season for the Bucs, Jackson had 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns.
