Bucs trade DeSean Jackson to Eagles

The Buccaneers and Eagles have agreed to a trade that will send receiver DeSean Jackson to his preferred destination, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The Eagles sent a sixth-round pick in 2019 to the Bucs with Philadelphia getting a seventh-rounder from Tampa Bay in 2020, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

The deal was expected after news broke Sunday night that the Bucs were shopping Jackson, who wanted to return to Philadelphia.

Jackson posted on social media earlier Monday that he will no longer be with the Bucs.

“Tampa it was a great experience, but things didn’t work out,” Jackson wrote. “Looking forward to my next destination. Stay Tuned.”

In six seasons in Philadelphia, Jackson averaged 59 catches for 1,020 yards and five touchdowns.

The move frees $10 million in cap space for the Bucs.

The Eagles have worked out a contract restructure with Jackson, who was entering the final year of his deal. Jackson will get $13 million guaranteed, Mortensen reports.

  1. Good luck with that. You are going from catching balls from backup Fitzmania to wentz’s unknown backup at some point this season.

    Wentz’s injury prone body

  2. This one is a head scratcher. They were going to cut him anyway, so why trade for that contract when you knew he wanted only to come back to Philly? They also have the same problem the Bucs had with him and their QB. Wents like Winston doesn’t hit shorter receivers well down the field.

    Should have let him get cut and sign him for less.

    —————————

    Agreed. He’s not worth 10 mill at this points in his career.

  4. Well we know how productive DJax can be when he’s happy. He got what he wanted both with location and $$, so he should be happy. Will he be returning punts against the NYG?

  5. Good luck! He’s an exceptional talent at stretching the field and tracking the ball.

    He can’t block though! So, you always have to account for that and the fact that he’s going to make a jackass move when he should go into the end zone to taught the opponent every year!

    He caused the Eagles to lose at least 1 game that way in his first stint and he caused my Redskins to lose two games that way in his 3 years years here including the last one on Monday Night Football. (The fact that he later scored when the game was out of reach doesn’t count! When he taunted and didn’t get into the end zone and didn’t score; the game clock allowed them to score and us too little time to catch up before the game ended)! Once would be enough for most clowns, but he’s had multiple episodes of this low-rent behavior that’s all about him!

    He’s talented, but he’s a selfish, me-first player! Good luck with this the second time around, Eagles fans!

  6. As a Bucs fan I’ll just say thanks for the draft pick for a player they were going to cut anyways, very generous.

  7. Eagles laying out thousand of Jacksons for two Jacksons!!! Both great moves. Both will make major impacts on The Eagles. DeSean is going to open up the running game and intermediate routes while occasionally torching teams on the deep passes.
    Wentz throws a great deep ball. Bad information is being stated over and over.
    NOW Malik Jackson and Fletcher Cox are the best interior in The NFL! Wow! Go Eagles Go!!!

  10. 10 million/ year, no way, his 1000 yds years are over ! Bucs were cutting this guy on Wed to shed that 10 million. Should have held on to the draft pick, no one else wanted him. Says a lot about a player! Glad he wants to play for you though! Maybe Shady will come join you guys too.

  11. Agholor is no WAY better than DJax!!

    Also we couldn’t wait for cut cause some other team w deeper pockets have definitely out bid us for him w 6th and a 7th next year for one of the best burners in the league? I’ll take it!

    GO BIRDS!

  15. Great move, speed threat as in Jackson led wideouts last year per yd catch, will open things up for ertz,goedert, Jefferies, and running game reaworked contract another Howie genius move

    The 2019 Philadelphia Eagles will not be boring

    ——-
    They won’t make the playoffs either

    ———————————————————————————-

    Just like they weren’t going to last year. Eventually you’ll get one right

  17. Oh I love how eagle fan likes to think the sb wasn’t the luckiest sb win in the history of the NFL…..too funny.

  18. Yup, Howie did It again. This will open up a lot of options. Last year there wasn’t any speed with the wideouts….

  19. For all the uneducated people on here….

    DJax didn’t have a no trade clause in his contract. Which means if Philly didn’t give up the 6th someone would have given a 7th and took a flyer on him.

    I highly doubt Philly was the only one talking to Tampa

  20. Lover the knucklehead comments, what will you say when DJAX burns you big a few times. The man can still run and lead the NFL in yards per catch last year.

  21. Good luck eagles fans. I was really excited also when we signed Jackson. But then after watching him for two years and seeing if the ball doesn’t hit him right in the bread basket he doesn’t even make an attempt for the ball. I watched jameis throw 5-6 interceptions on balls that Jackson could have probaly caught or at least got a hand on it to avoid the interception. But he just gives up on the ball if he has to go out of his way to catch. And the next time he doesn’t run out of bounds to avoid being tackled when he could of gotten 3-4 more yards will be the first. You always remember the good when you get a player like that back. And forget about all the things he did to get ran out of town the first time

  22. Djax is back. The last piece of the puzzle for sure. His speed alone is worth the 9 mil. A pure deep threat in every sense and actually better than torrey Smith, Superbowl champ!!
    What a haul for Howie and the gang.
    Easily the best receiving corps in the nfc east.

    ALL WE GOT/ALL WE NEED

  23. As a cowboys fan this is bad news. The dude burned our team many times.
    Go for the eagles though. I hate them more than anything but a good eagles team makes the nfc east fun. Let’s gooo

    Luckiest sb win in the history of the NFL.
    ==================================================
    Patriots have 2 SBs with an *. I guess that luckiest win made the Patriots unlucky. Go get a massage with your owner!
