It's been five years since Jackson left the Philadelphia Eagles for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Network reported. In the trade, the Bucs sent Jackson and a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles sixth-round pick in 2019.

Now, with free agency approaching, it seems like the team is back to moving on from Jackson. The former Cal standout spent the first six seasons of his career there.

Terms of the deal have not been released, but the Times confirmed the deal is contingent on Jackson reaching a new contract agreement with the Eagles.

ESPN's Jenna Laine reported there is interest in Jackson around the National Football League, though not at his current $10 million salary.

The Eagles signed veteran Mike Wallace to fill that outside speed role previous year, but he broke his leg in the second game of the season and didn't return to the field.

He is due to make $10 million next season. He played just 79 percent of the offensive snaps last season and missed more than half the 2017 season, including the entire postseason, after wrecking a knee.

That's less than Jackson would have made under his old contract with the Jaguars.

Jackson himself then confirmed his pending departure later Monday. He hauled in 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games.
