Philadelphia Eagles Actively Shopping DeSean Jackson in a Trade, According to Report

According to a report from Jeff McLane, the Eagles' efforts to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson have intensified. The Eagles are actively shopping the 27-year old talent. More from McLane's story (membership required - promo code: B26H)

While there have been earlier reports that teams reached out to inquire about Jackson, in several cases it has been the Eagles that have directly or indirectly shopped the wide receiver to gauge interest, two of the sources said.

"He's as good as gone," said one source close to the 27-year-old receiver. Another source estimated Jackson's chances of returning to the Eagles at less than five percent.

McLane's report follows a Tim McManus report from earlier in the day that Jackson said he doesn't believe he will return to the Eagles next season. With each new development in this story, it's looking more and more like Jackson will indeed not be returning to Philadelphia.

McLane also reports that the Eagles shouldn't expect to receive generous compensation in return.

As for compensation, Comcast SportsNet reported that the Eagles were requesting at least a third-round draft pick. But two of the NFL sources suggested they may not be able to even get that much in return.
