It was reported that the Redskins were interested in bringing back DeSean Jackson if he was released by the Buccaneers. Jackson was reportedly intent on returning to his first NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles. This was also reported last offseason, but now it's actually happening. DeSean Jackson is being traded back to the Eagles and rejoins the NFC East.
Jackson turns 33 this year and has missed games due to injury each of his 5 seasons since leaving Philly. He was due to make around $10 million on the last year of his deal. That number will likely change.
