Philadelphia Eagles create more cap space with new Jason Peters contract

Philadelphia Eagles create more cap space with new Jason Peters contract

According to ESPN, which cited unidentified sources, the Buccaneers have been actively shopping the wide receiver for a potential trade and Philadelphia would be the preferred destination for Jackson.

Jackson is coming up on the final season of a three-year deal that he signed in 2017 to come to Tampa Bay.

The report noted a trade is favored, though some teams believe Jackson will be released instead. Peters was originally set to make $7.75 million in 2019, but the two sides came to a new agreement today, one that is worth a maximum of $10 million with $5.5 million guaranteed.

Ever since the trade deadline in 2018, Jackson wanted to be dealt. He played the first six seasons of his career with the Eagles from 2008-13.

Jackson gives the Eagles a badly needed deep threat on the outside.

In his first unofficially game as an Eagles receiver, while wearing the No. 84 we must point out, Jackson racked up 12 catches from Wentz for 177 yards and three touchdowns in his EA Sports debut. He led the National Football League with 18.9 yards per reception. But the Bucs did not want to signal they were giving up on the 2018 season.

He returns to the Eagles at age 32 to fill a vital role in the offense.
