Report: Eagles Likely To Pursue DeSean Jackson


When DeSean Jackson was at the top of his game, he was wearing black and midnight green. During Jackson’s six seasons in Philadelphia, he reached the Pro Bowl three times. Since joining the Washington Redslins three years ago, Jackson’s numbers have plummented.

However, the explosive wide receiver may be returning to Philly, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Jackson will become an unrestricted free agent in the off-season and with Kirk Cousins and Pierre Garcon to receive deals, it’s unlikely Washington will be able to franchise tag Jackson.

Ironcially, the Redskins and Eagles will face off against each other next Sunday.
