Philadelphia Eagles bring back DeSean Jackson in trade with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

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

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 Eagles are bringing DeSean Jackson back to Philadelphia in hopes that he'll give them the vertical threat that their offense has been missing.

Now, with free agency approaching, it seems like the team is back to moving on from Jackson.

Trudeau denies 'partisan' meddling in prosecution
At Thursday's news conference, Trudeau picked up this theme, saying Wilson-Raybould should have come to him if she felt pressured. If Trudeau can't offer up specific details to address it, perhaps the justice committee can at least invite Wilson-Raybould back.

Terms of the deal have not been released, but the Times confirmed the deal is contingent on Jackson reaching a new contract agreement with the Eagles. Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the veteran defensive tackle is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles soon that will be worth $30 million.

This start is only somewhat fresh, as the receiver spent the first six years of his career in an Eagles uniform. He averaged 18.9 yards per catch last season, despite the turmoil at the quarterback position in Tampa Bay last season. Over his last three seasons in Jacksonville, Jackson made $45 million.

This would be the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract. But, during the 2016 and 2017 season, Jackson played all 32 games and recorded 14.5 sacks.

Jackson himself then confirmed his pending departure later Monday.
