Eagles, Bucs Reportedly Agree To DeSean Jackson Trade

Share

DeSean Jackson is saying goodbye, but the wave (and waive) is not yet being reciprocated.

Jackson was set to make $10 million for the Bucs in 2019 with a full $10 million cap hit, but no dead money if released.

As for Jackson, he'll enter his tenure with the Eagles with a career total of 239 tackles and 32 sack to his name.

In two seasons, Jackson never fulfilled his promise with the Bucs because of his inability to get on the same page with quarterback Jameis Winston.

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

He was voted to three Pro Bowls during his six-year tenure with the Eagles. At the time, the team had concerns about his attitude and lack of attendance in team meetings. Also used extensively as a punt returner early in his career, he took four punts back for touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Eagles. Jackson produced 142 receptions for 2,702 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns with the Eagles' NFC East rivals.

Jackson posted on Instagram earlier today that he was leaving Tampa, but the Buccaneers insisted they had not cut him.

Jackson led the National Football League in yards per reception last season, but most of his big numbers came with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Following the exchange, Jackson did not play in the Buccaneers' next three games.
