Despite laughing off reports about last minute deals at the trade deadline, Jay Glazer is reporting that Chip Kelly and the Eagles did in fact try to trade for Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson.
Tampa Bay turned the deal down.

Glazer did not say what the Eagles offered.
Jackson is due a base salary of $9.77M in 2015 and 2016, none guaranteed. The 31-year-old has 26 catches for 357 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
