The Los Angeles Rams and wideout DeSean Jackson have mutually agreed to seek a trade partner, NFL Network reported Friday.

The 34-year-old veteran only has eight catches through seven games this season, although he has turned them into 221 yards (27.6 yards per reception).

Jackson caught three passes for 120 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown, in a Week 3 win against Tampa Bay.

He has 620 catches for 10,877 yards and 57 touchdowns in 167 games (154 starts) with the Philadelphia Eagles (2008-13, 2019-20), Washington (2014-16), Tampa Bay (2017-18) and Los Angeles.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection led the NFL in yards per catch in 2010, 2014, 2016 and 2018.

A Los Angeles native, Jackson signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Rams in March. Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson have been the favorite targets this season for quarterback Matthew Stafford.
