Malik Jackson agrees to deal with Eagles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting to trade DeSean Jackson this offseason.

Reports indicate the Bucs will get back a 2019 6th round pick and the Eagles will get the Bucs' 2019 7th round pick in the deal.

As for Jackson, he'll enter his tenure with the Eagles with a career total of 239 tackles and 32 sack to his name.

More details to come. He has 589 catches for 10,261 yards and 53 touchdowns in his career.

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

Last summer Germany entered the World Cup in Russian Federation as holders, having won in Brazil four years earlier, and one of the favourites.

The Eagles signed veteran Mike Wallace to fill that outside speed role past year, but he broke his leg in the second game of the season and didn't return to the field. Jacksonville cut Jackson to avoid paying him $13 million this year.

Trading Jackson frees up $10 million in salary-cap space for the Bucs, who had less than $3.5 million in cap room entering the legal tampering period.

Peters started all 16 games last season but often wasn't able to play all the offensive snaps. The trade will include the Eagles reworking Jackson's contract.

He was voted to three Pro Bowls during his six-year tenure with the Eagles.

Jackson was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week in a cost-cutting move but has quickly found a home in Philadelphia.
