TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded DeSean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Reports surfaced back in 2018 that Jackson wanted out of Tampa Bay .

He said last season he wasn't happy, and sources said he wanted a fresh start with a different team.

This start is only somewhat fresh, as the receiver spent the first six years of his career in an Eagles uniform.

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.

In the 2018-19 season in Tampa Bay, Jackson caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns. That was good for fourth most receptions on the team, behind Mike Evans, Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin.

He is due to make $10 million next season.
