Confusion as DeSean Jackson says bye to team that hasn't cut him

In the 2018-19 season in Tampa Bay, Jackson caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Network reported.

In addition to Jackson, the Eagles get a seventh-round draft pick in 2020, while a 2019 sixth-round pick heads to the Buccaneers, a source told Mortensen. The deal is reportedly worth $10 million, with $5.5 million guaranteed.

The momentum around a reunion between the Eagles and Jackson had been building during the day Monday, with multiple reports saying Jackson wanted to return to Philadelphia.

Jackson, 32, was a second-round draft choice of the Eagles in 2008 and spent his first six seasons in Philly, where he averaged 59 catches, more than 1,000 yards and five touchdowns per year. Players with expiring contracts can't sign with a new team, however, until Wednesday at 4 p.m., when trades can become official as well.

After being released Friday, it took Malik Jackson just a couple days to find work as it appears he'll be going to another championship caliber defense.

But it now appears that Jackson is set to return to the city where he spent the first six years of his National Football League career.

He is due to make $10 million next season.

Peters started all 16 games last season but often wasn't able to play all the offensive snaps.
