Well then!

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles are expected to pursue Washington wide receiver and former Eagle DeSean Jackson this offseason.

From Schefter’s report:

Jackson will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, and the Redskins are unlikely to be able to use the franchise tag on the 30-year-old receiver, as they also look to reach deals with quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Pierre Garcon.

Jackson, of course, began his career with the Eagles in 2008 when they drafted him in the second round of that year’s draft.

He caught 356 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns before they released him in late March of 2014. He’s spent the last three seasons with Washington.

In October, before the Eagles faced Washington for the first time this season, Jackson didn’t rule out a possible return to Philadelphia now that Chip Kelly is gone.

I guess we’ll see if he was serious!
