In the 2018-19 season in Tampa Bay, Jackson caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired DeSean Jackson from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, league sources tell ESPN, reuniting the deep-threat receiver with the team that drafted him in 2008. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019. Initial reports indicated the lineman would earn $10 million total. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that he is "destined" for a reunion with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team he spent the first six seasons of his career. It's reportedly a three-year deal worth $10 million a year.

Terms of the deal have not been released, but the Times confirmed the deal is contingent on Jackson reaching a new contract agreement with the Eagles.

Clippers stay on road to playoffs at Lakers' expense
The Lakers' record now sits at 30-34, 4.5 games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The luxury of losing more than six games would be fatal and would leave the Lakers out of the NBA Playoffs.

And previous year, they looked to Mike Wallace, but he suffered an injury two games in.

The Jags moved on from Jackson to save $11 million in cap space after drafting his successor in Taven Bryan during last April's draft.

Peters started all 16 games last season but often wasn't able to play all the offensive snaps. At 32-years-old, Jackson is still a burner, on the field and of holes in the pockets of the Buccaneers. The Eagles also are expected to add a running back and a linebacker to help alleviate the expected departures of Jay Ajayi and Jordan Hicks, respectively.
