The DeSean Jackson trade: What our beat writers think

Former Jags DT Malik Jackson expected to sign with Eagles on a 3-year deal

Former Jags DT Malik Jackson expected to sign with Eagles on a 3-year deal

A couple of years ago, the reunion rumors heated up, but Jackson chased the money and found a new home with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The team was reportedly seeking a potential trade partner for Jackson, whose preferred destination was his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jackson was released by the Eagles in 2014 amid reports that he had affiliations with gang members.

Jackson asked to be traded last October, presumably to Philadelphia. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019.

Former Patriots LT Trent Brown Reportedly Signing 4-Year Deal With Raiders
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was sacked a career-high 51 times after being sacked a combined 36 times in 2016 and 2017. Well, as it turns out, there was actually a better offer on the table for AB's services.

Jackson was a second round pick by the Eagles in the 2008 NFL Draft.

He caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 2018 while also eclipsing 10,000 receiving yards for his career. Despite some of his comments about not needing more speed on offense, it's clear that Pederson wants a vertical threat opposite Alshon Jeffery. And just like that, Jackson is back in Philly with a restructured contract, which will keep him here for the next three seasons.

The Eagles signed veteran Mike Wallace to fill that outside speed role a year ago, but he broke his leg in the second game of the season and didn't return to the field.
