The Eagles are bringing DeSean Jackson back to Philadelphia in hopes that he'll give them the vertical threat that their offense has been missing.

DeSean Jackson #11 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers makes a reception during the first quarter against the Washington Redskins at Raymond James Stadium on November 11, 2018 in Tampa, Florida. He was one of the most productive wide receivers in Eagles history prior to his departure in 2014.

He was voted to three Pro Bowls during his six-year tenure with the Eagles.

These reports came to light just hours before teams can legally tamper with free agents, starting at 12:00pm EST. At the time, the team had concerns about his attitude and lack of attendance in team meetings.

Jackson posted on Instagram earlier today that he was leaving Tampa, but the Buccaneers insisted they had not cut him. His first two seasons have seen his characteristic flashes and dashes of brilliance - his 18.9 yards per reception last season led the National Football League - yet he has not made much of a dent in improving Tampa's offense. But, during the 2016 and 2017 season, Jackson played all 32 games and recorded 14.5 sacks.

Jackson got off to a hot start in which he had 17 catches for 424 yards and three touchdowns in the first four games, all started by backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
