Report: DeSean Jackson Wants an Eagles Reunion

The NFL’s legal tampering period is fast-approaching. Following a weekend that saw the Steelers trade Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders for a third and fifth-round pick, as well as Danny Amendola’s release and subsequent signing with the Detroit Lions, ESPN’s Jenna Laine and Tim McManus are reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are shopping WR DeSean Jackson, with the Eagles being a preferred destination for the player:

While the Bucs are shopping Jackson in hopes of finding a trade, there’s still a chance they’ll have to cut bait and let Jackson walk without compensation. Tampa Bay enters the offseason with less than $3.5m in cap space and releasing/trading Jackson would clear an additional $10m.

Jackson hauled in 41 receptions (4 TDs) on 74 targets for 774 yards in 2018 for an average of 18.9 yards per reception. That number is the third-highest of his career behind only 22.5 yd/rec (2010 w/ Eagles) and 20.9 yd/rec (2014 w/ Washington).

    Everyone wants to talk trash on Chip and rightfully so… but we NEVER would have won the Super Bowl with Desean.

    He drafted Ertz and Lane Johnson and, while he pretty much has been a bust for every other moment BESIDES the Super Bowl, he drafted Nelson.

    We don’t win the Super Bowl without Chip being here and Desean should stay where he is.

    Eagles will be back next year with a vengeance. A healthy Wentz and motivated one, more motivated than ever. Nasty DL, nasty OL. Secondary that is growing before everyone’s eyes. Add some more weapons to that offense, specifically speed on the outside and a running back, WATCH OUT Baby!!!

    Howie will fucking wait until he’s released. I can’t see bid dick energy Howie giving up a fucking draft pick & all that cap space for a d jacc who complains all the time gets injured every year.

    As long as they sign Randall Cunningham to back up Wentz and Tra Thomas to replace Jason Peters I’ll be fine with it

    This is a great idea, said no one.

    Maybe he could give Carson some leadership tips.

  • His last contract was for $10 million March 11, 2019 at 10:07 am

    I would offer him a one year deal at about 1/2 that amount. He probably still thinks he is $10 million a year receiver. If his name was Antonio Brown I would be glad to pay him $10 million

    DeSean Jaccson wanted to go to the Rams last week.

    He hasn’t been on a team to win a playoff game since Donovan McNabb was throwing touchdowns to him.

    Waiting for tomorrow’s story that LeSean McCoy wants an Eagle reunion.

    I guess we are just ignoring the whole thing about when this site went all in on the theory that DeSean Jackson was a gang member.

    And Kyle went on morning talk shows claiming to be an expert on gangs.

      You mean when Chip Kelly could do no wrong and Kyle stated that 2015 was going to be “An enjoy the ride type season” where the Eagles were going to go 14-2 in the regular season en route to a Super Bowl?

    my vote, for what it’s worth, is no on Desean. We don;t need another brother sitting in the corner complaining that Wentz only throws to the white guy. Draft a decent WR and groom him. Pitt found Juju and let AB walk…just find the right guy and save the $.

    Nobody wants that Smurf mofo back, except luxury car dealerships (until he defaults on the loan), sellers of shiney trinkets (that he’ll buy on credick – s.i.c. but it works) and strippers.
