  • Details on how much guaranteed money De Sean Jackson will get in restructured deal with Eagles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers found a trade partner for DeSean Jackson, after all. 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.

DeSean Jackson is headed back to the Eagles, where he started his career, and quarterback Carson Wentz appears pretty happy about it.

Now, with free agency approaching, it seems like the team is back to moving on from Jackson.

The trade can not be made official until 4 p.m. Wednesday. Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the veteran defensive tackle is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles soon that will be worth $30 million. He played the first six seasons of his career with the Eagles from 2008-13.

He is due to make $10 million next season.

The Eagles feature three receivers - Jordan Matthews, Golden Tate and Mike Wallace - with expiring contracts who could be lost by the end of this week. Despite being 32, Jackson is still among the fastest wide receivers in the game.

This would be the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract. He hauled in 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games.

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