Now that the Eagles have released DeSean Jackson, the 27-year old wide receiver is a free agent who is able to sign with any team. Jackson has already drawn interest around the league, according to reports.

The exact teams who are interested in Jackson isn't quite known, but there are some guesses as to who they could be. Some of these teams were rumored to be interested in Jackson when reports emerged last week that the former Eagles' receiver was on the trade block. Those teams include: the Seahawks, 49ers, Raiders, Patriots, Panthers, Chiefs, and JetsBGN's own Mike Kaye is hearing that the Browns and Bengals could have interest in Jackson. Some of those reported teams have denied interest, but it's really no surprise to see so many teams potentially in on Jackson.

Jimmy Kempski, who originally reported that the Eagles could part ways with DeSean Jackson this offseason, believes that Jackson won't be signing anywhere anytime soon, though.

As Kempski mentions, other teams will certainly be skeptical as to why the Eagles released Jackson. They might not be in a rush to get a deal done without gathering information first.

An ideal landing spot for Jackson would be an AFC team. That way the Eagles would only have to worry about facing him once every three years at most. Thankfully for the Eagles, that just might happen. Teams like the Jets, Bengals, and Browns all have the cap space to sign Jackson. The Jets could especially make sense for Jackson. NYJ team owner Woody Johnson openly commented on his team's interest in Jackson last weekend. Plus, former Eagles QB Michael Vick and former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg are already employed by the Jets.

It'll be interesting to see where Jackson lands.
