Philadelphia Eagles bring back DeSean Jackson in trade with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting to trade DeSean Jackson this offseason.

As for Jackson, he'll enter his tenure with the Eagles with a career total of 239 tackles and 32 sack to his name.

Jackson was a second round pick by the Eagles in the 2008 NFL Draft.

It didn't take free agent defensive tackle Malik Jackson long to find a new team. The deal is reportedly worth $10 million, with $5.5 million guaranteed.

Ireland keep Six Nations title hopes alive v France
Wales have won a national record 13 successive tests since losing to Ireland in February previous year in Dublin . It would be no mean feat in the Six Nations, and games can be decided on small margins and decisions.

Jackson asked to be traded last October, presumably to Philadelphia.

There were reports that he preferred to end up with the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Bucs ended up honoring that request by sending Jackson and a seventh-rounder for next year in return for 2019 sixth-round pick. He led the National Football League by averaging 18.9 yards per catch in 2018 - he burned the Eagles for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in their September meeting - and he's averaged 17.4 yards per catch in his career.

On paper, this move gives the Eagles a burner for quarterback Carson Wentz. And just like that, Jackson is back in Philly with a restructured contract, which will keep him here for the next three seasons. But the Bucs did not want to signal they were giving up on the 2018 season.
