Report: Eagles want at least a 3rd round pick for DeSean Jackson, Patriots and 49ers interested

desean jackson 2According to Derrick Gunn of,  the Eagles are willing to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson in exchange for at least a third round pick.

Even though the Eagles aren’t shopping Jackson,  they’ve listened to offers from both the 49ers and Patriots.

The team has taken inquiries from the 49ers and Patriots, Gunn has learned from a league source, and notified the Pro Bowl wideout early last week that it’s not shopping him but is listening to potential suitors.

Also according to the source, the Eagles are seeking at least a third-round pick and potentially more for Jackson, whose career-best 1,332 yards last season ranked ninth among NFL receivers. Jackson also tied a career high with nine touchdowns and averaged 16.2 yards per reception, third-highest among wideouts with at least 80 receptions.

A third round pick actually seems fair for Jackson.  As long as you’re willing to put up with hi baggage.
