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.
