It’s become an open secret that the Eagles want to trade receiver DeSean Jackson. Starting Sunday, it’ll be much easier for them to try to make a deal.
On that day, the league’s movers and shakers temporarily will relocate to Orlando for the annual league meetings, and it will be seamless and organic for trade discussions to occur.
The Patriots, 49ers, and Jets are among the teams believed to be interested in Jackson.
And it will be impossible for Eagles’ management to avoid the media. Coach Chip Kelly, G.M. Howie Roseman, and/or owner Jeffrey Lurie will be swamped by reporters looking for something clear and unequivocal regarding their intentions for Jackson.
For now, their collective silence on the topic makes it obvious that Jackson is available. Early next week in Orlando, Jackson could end up changing teams.
Until then, have a listen to Thursday’s visit from Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com to PFT Live regarding DeSean Jackson and other Eagles-related topics.
