Patriots, 49ers Have Inquired About Desean Jackson


The Philadelphia Eagles are not looking to trade Desean Jackson, but the team is getting interest from other teams around the league and they are listening to the offers. They are looking for at least a 3rd round draft pick in the trade and could also be looking for more based on the interest, per CSN Philly.

A couple of teams have already talked to the Eagles about Jackson and more could be joining in on the action. The Patriots and 49ers are a couple of teams that have shown interest in Jackson. Jackson would be a legit speed threat to both rosters.

The 49ers already have a solid pair of receivers with Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, but there best deep threat is their tight end Vernon Davis. Jackson could join the roster and be that threat down the field.

The Patriots have a couple of receivers that can get open on underneath routes with Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. Rob Gronkowski also can make a living down there, but having a threat like Desean Jackson on the outside could open up that area even more.

Expect the rumors to be flying on Jackson.
