Wide receiver DeSean Jackson returning to the Philadelphia Eagles

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson returning to the Philadelphia Eagles

If ever there was confirmation that DeSean Jackson has no interest in playing for the Bucs, or new coach Bruce Arians, this is it.

"Tampa it was a great experience, but things didn't work out! Looking forward to my next destination", Jackson wrote.

Malik Jackson #97 of the Jacksonville Jaguars celebrates against the Pittsburgh Steelers during the first half of the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Heinz Field on January 14, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that he is "destined" for a reunion with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team he spent the first six seasons of his career. But general manager Jason Licht, when asked about Jackson, said, "I'd say all options are on the table", while also praising his speed.

MPs rejected the prime minister's deal by 230 votes in January - the largest defeat for a sitting government in history. They want Mrs May to change this aspect of the deal.

On Monday, Jackson took to social media to say goodbye to Tampa prior to reports of an agreed-upon trade. In October, he asked Licht to trade him before the deadline. As the Green Bay Packers were another team that was in on acquiring Jackson, he ultimately chose to sign with the Eagles on a three-year deal, which is worth $30 million total. Jackson has one year left on his three-year, $33.5 million contract with the Bucs.

But Jackson said he had trouble adjusting to his role as the No. 2 receiver behind Mike Evans, who already had a connection with quarterback Jameis Winston. 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. Despite being 32, Jackson is still among the fastest wide receivers in the game.
