DeSean Jackson celebrates being traded to Eagles with IG post

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s 12-year career has gone full circle. On Monday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded Jackson to the same Eagles team that drafted him 49th overall in 2008.

With a celebration in order, Jackson posted this throwback image of him wearing his No. 10 green Eagles jersey.


The post is simply captioned, “Gotta luv it” accompanied with a muscle emoji. Jackson was not happy with his situation in Tampa Bay on a Buccaneers team that has a struggling quarterback and faces some fierce competition within the NFC South.

Instead, he is back with an Eagles team that is only one year removed from winning a Super Bowl.

Catching passes from a presumedly healthy Carson Wentz is next in line for Jackson during what has been a brilliant career.
