Tampa Bay Buccaneers actively seeking trade partner for DeSean Jackson

Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports the Eagles are sending the Buccaneers a 2019 sixth-round pick and a 2020 seventh-round pick. 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.

Some teams expect Jackson to be released by Tampa Bay. It appears a reunion could be in store as Laine writes that the Eagles, too, have interest in their second round pick from 2008.

Jackson has led the league in yards per reception four times, including this past season (18.9).

Teams may begin to negotiate with potential free agents on Monday and are allowed to finalize contracts with them beginning on Thursday.

Although Jackson didn't play as well in 2018 as he did in the previous three seasons, he's still a solid presence in the middle of the defensive line and a good addition to the Eagles. Jackson will get a guaranteed $13 million, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Jackson's base salary for 2019 is $10 million, and it's not guaranteed, while the Bucs now have less than $3.5 million in cap space.

Now that Jackson is officially part of the mix, all eyes will be on the 29-year-old defender to see how much of an impact he can make on defense to put the Eagles in the best position possible to compete.

The team would not confirm the contract, which can be signed before the official start of free agency on Wednesday because Jackson was released by the Jaguars as a cap casualty.
