The defending Super Bowl champions are reportedly among the clubs who may be intrigued by Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, the Seahawks have expressed “interest” in the 27-year-old Jackson, who has been at the center of increasing trade speculation.
La Canfora also reported that the 49ers — who have already been linked to Jackson — are also among the teams who have considered the Eagles’ star wide receiver.
The Seahawks added dynamic playmaking wide receiver Percy Harvin last offseason. Were Jackson to join the fold, the Seahawks would boast field-stretching ability few other teams possess. Likewise, Jackson would bolster the 49ers’ passing game, which has three top targets in tight end Vernon Davis and wideouts Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.
These are fun scenarios to ponder. However, unanswered is why there is so much trade chatter about such a skilled player. There is also the matter of working out a deal for Jackson, who is due $10.5 million in salary in 2014, per Rotoworld data.
