Kevin O'Donnell of Fox13 reports that releasing Jackson gives Tampa Bay an additional $10 million in cap space.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers found a trade partner for DeSean Jackson, after all. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019. 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.

Jackson is set to earn $10 million in 2019, and none of it is guaranteed going into the final year of his contract. Over his last three seasons in Jacksonville, Jackson made $45 million.

The Eagles signed veteran Mike Wallace to fill that outside speed role a year ago, but he broke his leg in the second game of the season and didn't return to the field. Despite being 32, Jackson is still among the fastest wide receivers in the game.




The Eagles agreed to re-work Jackson's contract with a deal that is expected to be worth $27 million over three years, according to a source.

Jackson has led the league in yards per reception four times, including this past season (18.9).

Jackson was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week in a cost-cutting move but has quickly found a home in Philadelphia.
