  Eagles | DeSean Jackson happy to be back in Philly    Sun Mar 17, 02:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, March 14, is 'excited' about re-signing with the team and blamed his 2014 offseason release on former Eagles coach Chip Kelly, not general manager Howie Roseman. 'One thing I can say about Howie Roseman, we always had a great relationship,' Jackson said. 'Even when I went on and played in Washington and played in Tampa Bay, anytime I was able to see him on the field pregame, he always came up and just gave me a hug. Once again, it was a bittersweet situation. We all know how I was released.'

Footballguys view: Jackson knows the city from his time playing with the Eagles from 2008-2013. He's still got speed and that should be utilized to spread the field vertically for QB Carson Wentz. In 12 games last year for the Buccaneers, Jackson caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns. He's got WR3 potential for Fantasy GMs now that he's back with the Eagles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson was officially acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 13, in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft choice. The Eagles also received 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the trade.

Footballguys view: Jackson is back with the Eagles, a natural fit to be sure. He's going to stretch the field for QB Carson Wentz in 2019.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson has support of QB    Fri Mar 8, 09:19 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he hopes WR DeSean Jackson remains with the team in 2019, and he called Jackson one of the 'best deep-threat targets' in the league.

Footballguys view: Jackson's future with the Buccaneers is up in the air. He's got a $10 million cap hit in 2019 with zero remaining in dead money. We'll see if the Bucs want to keep him at that price or let him go.

  Steelers | DeSean Jackson to Pittsburgh plausible    Sat Feb 23, 08:04 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson is disgruntled with his current team and wants to play elsewhere. Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds opines that trading Jackson to the Pittsburgh Steelers makes sense as Jackson wants out and the Steelers will likely need to replace WR Antonio Brown.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will be in the market for a wide receiver, whether that's via trade, free agency or the draft. With the $21 million cap hit the Steelers have to take when trading away Brown, perhaps going with a cheaper option (rookie) would be for the best.

  Rams | DeSean Jackson wants to be a Ram    Wed Jan 30, 03:49 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson mentioned Wednesday, Jan. 30, that he desires to play for the Los Angeles Rams, although he is under contract with the Buccaneers for one more season. Jackson played for the Washington Redskins while Rams head coach Sean McVay was the offensive coordinator there.

Footballguys view: Jackson is almost certainly going to be released, but the Rams don't really have a need for him. Perhaps if he takes a big pay cut he could end up in Los Angeles, but don't count on it. The Sean McVay craze apparently applies to players in addition to owners and general managers.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson not expected back    Sat Jan 19, 01:12 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson probably will not return to the Buccaneers next season even though head coach Bruce Arians hopes he stays on the roster, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: We just don't see Jackson staying with the Buccaneers. He could move on and perhaps wind up back in Philadelphia as a deep threat. Speaking of deep threats, don't be surprised if John Brown finds his way to Tampa to reunite with Arians. 'Smoke' Brown was a good player for Arians during their time with the Cardinals.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson yet to hear from Bucs    Fri Jan 18, 12:23 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, Jan. 17, that he has yet to talk to new head coach Bruce Arians or anyone from the team about remaining in Tampa.

Footballguys view: The writing has been on the wall with Jackson for some time and we don't expect the Bucs to retain his services. Jackson is entering the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract. We could see Jackson winding up back in Philadelphia if he is released. Also, watch for impending free agent John Brown perhaps landing with the Bucs and reuniting with Arians.

  Eagles | DeSean Jackson eyeing Philly    Fri Dec 28, 09:12 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson would really like to play for the Philadelphia Eagles next season.

Footballguys view: This was the buzz before the 2018 trade deadline yet the Buccaneers kept Jackson on the roster. He's been unhappy in Tampa for some time and will likely get his wish to play elsewhere. Jackson is under contract through 2019 but he's got a $10 million cap number with zero in dead money.

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson may play     Tue Dec 18, 02:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (thumb) is hopeful to return this week after missing the last three games with a left thumb injury.

Footballguys view: Jackson will have to show the ability to cleanly catch the ball in practice if he wants to play. The Bucs travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in Week 16 and Jackson would be merely a 'what the heck' flex if he plays.
