Despite playing his way onto three Pro Bowl squads during his six-year NFL career, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson finds himself in the middle of interesting trade rumors. The 27-year-old is tied to a $12.5-million cap hit if he remains on the roster and although the Eagles are not actively shopping the former University of California standout, the franchise is willing to listen to multiple clubs who may be interested in the speedsters services. Jackson put together another fine season last year for the NFC East champion Eagles, amassing 1,332 yards on 82 receptions and 9 touchdowns but because there seems to be a consistent rift between the wideout and Eagles front office personnel, a parting of ways may be the safest road traveled.

According to CBS Sports, the New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers have already shown interest in Jackson but teams including the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs could also make a move to acquire the talented down-field threat. Many believed Jackson would be up for a change of scenery in January, when he expressed the desire to receive a fresh contract even though he still has three years and over $30 million remaining on his current deal. Attempting to refute the belief that he was only in it for the money however, Jackson said recently that his number one goal is to win a championship and continue to play at a strong level.

“To clarify any info that yall people got twisted up,” Jackson said through his personal Instagram page. “I didn’t ask for a new contract . . . I’m blessed to be at the level where I feel my stats did the talking . . . Injury free year & healthy and wish the season would have ended different with a ring . . . But I’m hopeful that will happen soon . . . Don’t listen to mixed words I didn’t say . . . Tired of dumb info being twisted to what I didn’t say word up!! The question was brought to me I didn't bring it up. I guarantee if you ask Chip Kelly what he felt about me answering the question honestly, he'll probably tell you he was pleased with that.”

San Francisco may not be the best fit despite their interest considering the team needs to save room for a new and improved deal for quarterback Colin Kaeperick but the New England Patriots – who sources say could send Danny Amendola in exchange for Jackson – sit as a strong possibility. Shortly after landing free agent wide receiver Eric Decker, the New York Jets would love to add another proven veteran to their offense but so far no one from the Jets front office, including GM John Idzik, has reached out to Philadelphia higher-ups.
