It’s unofficially official.
After rumors started this morning about a potential DeSean Jackson return to Philadelphia, it appears a deal is in place to bring the wide receiver back from Tampa Bay.
The return is cheap.
League source tells me the eagles gave a 2019 6th round pick and a 2020 7th round pick to get Desean Jackson

Sounds like the team was also interested in Kenny Stills from Miami.
I’ll take it. He has one year left for $10 million which is a lot for where he’s at. So expect a reworked contract. Who knows what happens with Nelson Agholor.
Edit: Contract is restructured.
DeSean Jackson gets $13 million guaranteed on a restructure. Eagles send a 6th rd pick in 2019 to Tampa and get back a 7th in 2020

DeSean Jackson’s reworked contract with the Eagles is expected to be three years for $27 million, source said.

I also like this.
Carson Wentz excels throwing the routes that DeSean Jackson runs best. This is an extremely underrated acquisition. pic.twitter.com/VYnJkSmgGh

Along with D-Jax back, sounds like the Eagles won’t pick up Stefen Wisniewski’s option for 2019. That’s not surprising after the team extended Isaac Seumalo’s contract. Maybe he’ll land with the Jets.
Finally, Nick Foles will sign with Jacksonville. It’s for a lot.

Guranteed money for Nick Foles in Jacksonville, per source: $50.125 million. https://t.co/45h5eJtHkM

He also signed with Lululemon today so overall a pretty good Monday for the former Super Bowl MVP. Blake Bortles will be out.
