If you ask most Eagles fans they’ll tell you that we should’ve never let DeSean and Shady go. Chip Kelly ripped apart what may have been the speediest and deadliest Eagles team and we’re all left wondering what if. Now a piece of that beloved team and intricate part of the last Miracle at the Meadowlands is coming back home. That’s right, DeSean Jackson is being traded back to the Eagles.
The Eagles and Buccaneers have agreed to a trade that will send WR DeSean Jackson to Philadelphia. Jackson, 32, is set to enter the final year of his 3-year/$33.5M contract and stands to make a base salary of $10M in 2019. The Buccaneers will free up $10M in cap space by trading Jackson, while absorbing $0 in dead money. In 12 starts last season, Jackson caught 41 passes for 774 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 29 yards and a touchdown.
DeSean has been pretty open about his desire to come home and his IG is sprinkled with Eagles highlights with his time here. Stay tuned for more. In the meantime check out some DJax highlights below in case you forgot.
