DeSean Jackson Returning to Eagles After Buccaneers Agree Trade

Jackson is set to earn $10 million in 2019, and none of it is guaranteed going into the final year of his contract.

It's been five years since Jackson left the Philadelphia Eagles for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

DeSean Jackson is heading back to Philly.

Jackson's contract is reportedly worth $30 million over three years.

It didn't take free agent defensive tackle Malik Jackson long to find a new team.

Jackson was released by the Eagles in 2014 amid reports that he had affiliations with gang members.

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. Jackson produced 142 receptions for 2,702 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns with the Eagles' NFC East rivals.

It looks like DeSean Jackson's time in Tampa Bay is over.

Jackson gives the Eagles a badly needed deep threat on the outside. While Torrey Smith and Mike Wallace filled that role in the past, Jackson is a major upgrade. He played just 79 percent of the offensive snaps last season and missed more than half the 2017 season, including the entire postseason, after wrecking a knee.

Jackson got off to a hot start in which he had 17 catches for 424 yards and three touchdowns in the first four games, all started by backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
