Today just keeps getting better and better.
This morning the Eagles made waves by signing former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson to a 3-year 30 million dollar deal. This afternoon they brought back a familiar face in wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Mike Garofalo and Ian Rapoport reported the trade on Twitter.

Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reported the trade will only cost the Eagles two late round draft picks.
League source tells me the eagles gave a 2019 6th round pick and a 2020 7th round pick to get Desean Jackson

I like this trade for the Eagles. DJax is getting up there in age but he still poses a vertical threat that was dearly missed for this offense last season. I hope none of y’all threw out your #10 jerseys when Chip Kelly cut him.
