Eagles' Jackson bids farewell to Philadelphia prior to release

Jesse Fuchs is joined by NFL Network’s Adam Rank to discuss Carson Wentz being traded to the Colts. Including, who won the trade, who the next QB will be for the Eagles and the fantasy fallout from the deal.

DeSean Jackson's second stint with the Philadelphia Eagles has come to an end.

A day after the franchise agreed to trade quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, the veteran wide receiver bid farewell to Philadelphia on his Instagram account Friday amid reports of Jackson's impending release, which was later confirmed by the Eagles.

Jackson's return to Philadelphia was an injury-plagued one as the 34-year-old suited up in just eight games for the Eagles after being acquired in a trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2019. In those eight games, Jackson recorded 23 receptions for 395 yards and three touchdowns.

The Eagles drafted Jackson in the second round of the 2008 draft, and he spent six electrifying years with the club before being cut in March 2014. He then signed with division rival Washington, where he spent three seasons before inking a contract with Tampa in 2017.

In 13 NFL seasons, Jackson has amassed 10,656 receiving yards and 56 touchdowns on 612 career receptions.

The move is the latest by a Philadelphia team in transition, and more roster moves are expected as the new league year approaches.
