Report: Pats & 49ers Interested in Trading for DeSean Jackson
The DeSean Jackson talk may be just speculation and rumor, but Derrick Gunn of CSN Philly is reporting that the Patriots and 49ers have inquired about the embattled wideout.
The team has taken inquiries from the 49ers and Patriots, Gunn has learned from a league source, and notified the Pro Bowl wideout early last week that it’s not shopping him but is listening to potential suitors.
Also according to the source, the Eagles are seeking at least a third-round pick and potentially more for Jackson, whose career-best 1,332 yards last season ranked ninth among NFL receivers. Jackson also tied a career high with nine touchdowns and averaged 16.2 yards per reception, third-highest among wideouts with at least 80 receptions.
Again the team is just listening to offers.
