Malik Jackson to sign $30m three-year deal with Philadelphia Eagles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded De Sean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports

He even posted a farewell to the Bucs on Instagram and Twitter despite not being traded or released by the team yet.

After being released Friday, it took Malik Jackson just a couple days to find work as it appears he'll be going to another championship caliber defense. It's reportedly a three-year deal worth $10 million a year. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Jackson and the Eagles are "destined" for each other. He made the Pro Bowl three times as a member of the Eagles.

DeSean Jackson is heading back to Philly.

This would be the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract.

Reports surfaced back in 2018 that Jackson wanted out of Tampa Bay. His first two seasons have seen his characteristic flashes and dashes of brilliance - his 18.9 yards per reception last season led the National Football League - yet he has not made much of a dent in improving Tampa's offense.

Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports the Eagles are sending the Buccaneers a 2019 sixth-round pick and a 2020 seventh-round pick. While Torrey Smith and Mike Wallace filled that role in the past, Jackson is a major upgrade.

Jackson was cut unceremoniously by former Eagles coach Chip Kelly following a 2013 season in which he caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. But, during the 2016 and 2017 season, Jackson played all 32 games and recorded 14.5 sacks.
