The deal marks a return to the Eagles for Jackson, who started his career in Philadelphia, where he spent six seasons and made three Pro Bowls. Then-Eagles coach Chip Kelly cut Jackson in 2014, leaving him to sign with the rival Washington Redskins as a free agent.
Jackson, 32, remains one of the game’s premier deep-ball threats. He caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns last season, averaging 18.9 yards per reception, a league-best for players who made at least 30 catches.
Bucs starter Jameis Winston struggled to make a connection with Jackson. Jackson averaged a career-low 13.4 yards per catch in 2017, when Winston started 13 games.
Jackson openly lobbied for Fitzpatrick in Tampa
Jackson’s yards-per-catch surged last season when Ryan Fitzpatrick played in eight games, leading Jackson to publicly support Fitzpatrick as the team’s quarterback. Winston is expected to be the starter next season under new head coach Bruce Arians.
Awesome experience today at @childrensphila as an ambassador for @pick_nrg .... got to spend some time with some incredibly strong kids who definitely inspire me! Prayers up for each youngster going through tough times over there. And a huge S/O to @childrensphila and @pick_nrg for the awesome work they’re both doing!
