DeSean Jackson couldn’t wait to play with Carson Wentz

DeSean Jackson will return to the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. The Eagles are reportedly signing defensive tackle Malik Jackson to a 3-year deal worth $30 million and signed offensive lineman Jason Peters to a one-year deal. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported the Eagles sent a sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Bucs in exchange for Jackson and a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He also hasn't been with a real franchise QB during that time, playing for a true Super Bowl contender.

As I wrote this morning, Jackson would be a fit with the Eagles, but it'll be interesting to see what the price would be.

Jackson asked to be traded last October, presumably to Philadelphia.

Sources told ESPN that Jackson had conversations over the weekend with the Buccaneers' front office.

For her part, Muguruza says that she took no pleasure from her unconventional victory against one of the sport's all-time greats. Serena Williams bowed out of the Indian Wells Open due to illness, while Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina enjoyed strong wins.

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.

DeSean Jackson could soon be on his way out of Tampa Bay.

Jackson, 32, had 774 yards and four touchdowns on 41 receptions in 12 games in 2018.
