DeSean Jackson Traded from Buccaneers, Headed Back to Philly

Speedy wide receiver DeSean Jackson is eyeing a return to the Philadelphia Eagles. Garafolo notes the Washington Redskins could also be in on Jackson if the receiver gets cut.

Philadelphia drafted Jackson in the second round in 2008. He started all 16 games last season, but he played around only 80 percent of the team's offensive snaps because of nagging injuries during his comeback from the torn ACL and MCL that sidelined him for the Super Bowl run in 2017.

The team was reportedly seeking a potential trade partner for Jackson, whose preferred destination was his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019.

But it now appears that Jackson is set to return to the city where he spent the first six years of his National Football League career.

Some of the changes detected were in capillaries or blood vessels that measured less than the width of a human hair he explained. The test involves looking at blood vessels in the retina, but isn't something that now takes place as part of a normal eye test.

Sources told ESPN that Jackson had conversations over the weekend with the Buccaneers' front office.

Jackson, 32, had 774 yards and four touchdowns on 41 receptions in 12 games in 2018.

Among Eagles with at least 20 catches, Jordan Matthews was the leader with 15.0 yards per catch in 2018. And just like that, Jackson is back in Philly with a restructured contract, which will keep him here for the next three seasons.
