The DeSean Jackson trade: What our beat writers think

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

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting to trade DeSean Jackson this offseason.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Jackson have mutual interest in a reunion. He accumulated three 1,000-yard seasons while in Philadelphia and has recorded two more since that time, though none in his recent two-year stint in Tampa Bay. The deal is reportedly worth $10 million, with $5.5 million guaranteed. Jackson requested a trade before the 2018 National Football League trade deadline in October.

DeSean Jackson #11 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers makes a reception during the first quarter against the Washington Redskins at Raymond James Stadium on November 11, 2018 in Tampa, Florida. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported the Eagles sent a sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Bucs in exchange for Jackson and a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He played the first six seasons of his career with the Eagles from 2008-13.

On paper, this move gives the Eagles a burner for quarterback Carson Wentz.

At 32, Jackson is coming off a season in which he caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns.

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