WR Jackson says goodbye to Bucs in IG post

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded De Sean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports

The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to sign former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson.

Jackson posted on Instagram earlier today that he was leaving Tampa, but the Buccaneers insisted they had not cut him. He played six seasons with the Eagles, earning three Pro Bowl nods in his time there before a nasty divorce sparked by then-coach Chip Kelly. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019.

Sources told ESPN on Sunday that the Bucs were actively shopping Jackson and that Philadelphia was his desired landing spot.

In two seasons, Jackson never fulfilled his promise with the Bucs because of his inability to get on the same page with quarterback Jameis Winston.

In 12 games last season for the Bucs, Jackson had 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns.

Following his release from the Eagles, Jackson spent three seasons with the Washington Redskins.

Jackson has over 10,000 career receiving yards and 53 receiving touchdowns. They would gain $10-million on the cap if the trade of Jackson is completed. At 32-years-old, Jackson is still a burner, on the field and of holes in the pockets of the Buccaneers.

Malik Jackson nearly certainly won't be the only top-of-the-roster player added in free agency.
