DeSean Jackson Traded To The Eagles

March 11th, 2019

UPDATED 8:59 p.m. – DeSean Jackson got his October wish.

It only took him behaving like a complete ass to get it done.

General manager Jason Licht found a trade taker for Jackson in Eagles general manager Howie Roseman, who will embrace Jackson and wipe $10 million off the Bucs’ salary cap books in 2019. NFL Network reported the news moments ago.

This is great news. The Bucs’ locker room is now free from a historic cancer (yes, Joe knows some wild truths that were told to Joe in confidence this year) and at least the Bucs will get a something in return. BSPN is reporting the Eagles sent a sixth-round pick in 2019 to the Bucs and will get a seventh-rounder from Tampa Bay next year.

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, now has one less issue dragging him down. And now the Bucs can find a quality punt returner who actually wants to help the team.

The infectious free agency class of 2017 won’t dragging down the franchise any longer.

    Bucs WR Depth cart…

    WR1 Evans
    WR2 Godwin
    WR3 Bobo
    WR4 Watson
    WR5 TBD…

    That’s a very very top heavy depth chart.

  10. Carl RICHARDS Says:

    We need MLB Mosley not Humphries. Love the guys guts but we need Mosley way more

  11. richardtyson Says:

    Go get Hump now and draft Devin White.

  12. AfrikaThaRapper Says:

    Good riddance. Go Bucs.

  13. Cb13 Says:

    We still don’t have enough cap room to sign Humphries . We’d have to cut more players.

  14. Wausa Says:

    Bucs get 2019 6th and 2020 7th from Eagles

  15. AZBucsFan4Lyfe Says:

    Bucs got a 6th this year and 7th next year
    Highly doubt that. –Joe

  16. Sheck Says:

    Hopefully we can move on from this clown, everyone has talked way to much about him, get him out of here QUICKLY

  17. BucEmUp 7 Says:

    Rod, O.J Howard is basically a wr and so is Brate. Koetter was stupud to not give watson playing time last season. Least of my worries. Bucs are just getting started trimming the fat

  18. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    bucs wr and lack of speed is not good, you have ME, OJ, Godwin, Brate, then ? djax was always a dumb signing and and jason gump not trading djax last year was a 5-11 move, but getting a trade partner this time was a good move by licht

  19. BucDan Says:

    Use the extra monies to shore up the secondary and I will feel condidanf as a fan going into the draft.

  20. StoutGospel Says:

    Packers going after Hump makes a TON OF SENSE.

    Remember where you heard it.

    Go Bucs! Land Quinnen!

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    Wow, a 7th round pick in exchange for DJax? Let’s see, in the 7th Round Jason Licht has taken Stevie T (of IR fame) & Joey Iosefa (2 whole games with New England back in 2015 then out of the league). Yup, can’t wait to see what Licht grabs with this 7th rounder.

    Jason’s done somewhat better with the 5th & 6th rounders since 2014. Justin Watson & Jack Cichy in 2018, Jeremy McNichols in 2017, Caleb Benenoch, Devante Bond & Dan Vitale in 2016, Kenny Bell & Kaelin Clay in 2015, and Kadeem Edwards, Kevin Pamphile & Robert Herron in 2014. Of those 11 players, 4 are still with the Bucs (for now at least).

  25. StoutGospel Says:


    Nevermind…Hump to the Titans! Jon Robinson in TEN is such a stud GM, former Bucs front office.

    Go Bucs! Land Quinnen!

  26. Aaron Says:

    Eagles get Jackson and a 7th

    Bucs get 6th round

  27. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Hump going to Titans. Time to see what Justin Watson is made of.

    Hump to the Titans now wish him well.

  29. StoutGospel Says:

    It’s a 6th idiot boy @DR….

    WE GAVE A 7TH with him.

    But is it a PLAYER IDIOT?? Is it a player…did I miss it?!

    OR is it a draft pick kitten. a 6TH rounder.

    Be real quiet kitten 🙂

    Go Bucs!

  30. Costa Rica John Says:

    We got robbed.

  31. AlteredEgo Says:

    Munch… Bono won’t even be on the roster

  32. Defense Rules Says:

    Oh and for those anxious to spend the $10 mil we just ‘saved’ by ‘trading’ DJax, keep in mind that the rookie pool with cost us a little over $9 mil. And that’s BEFORE we’ve signed any of our own FAs, like Barber, Taylor, Adams & a few others.

  33. StoutGospel Says:

    Hope we all finished 6th grade….

    (See what I did there…a 6th rounder…6th grade). Know it can be a challenge for some.

    Just know your role.

    You may be right Joe, but that is what is being reported.
    Bucs to receive 6th in 2019 and 7th in 2020 from Eagles

  35. AKickInTheBucNuts Says:


  36. stpetebucsfan Says:

    7th round draft picks simply do not excite me in terms of any kind of compensation. They are less than 32 picks away from being UFDA’s.

    6th rounders…not much better.

    For DJAX the real gain was the loss of a ten million dollar liability.

  37. Defense Rules Says:

    Hey StoutAngel, you might want to take up reading as a hobby.

    @Joe … “Joe will update the compensation here when it becomes available, likely a seventh-round pick”.

    Oh and be VERY wary of calling others ‘IDIOT’. Things like that have a habit of coming back to bite you in the arse.

    Like Florida there is No state income tax in Tennessee. Good luck Adam. We will miss you.

  42. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    DR, great points, maybe should have traded him last year, no idea what this GM is doing

  43. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Humphries at $9m a year. lol crazy

    As of now that likely generates a 4th rounder if no equivalent player / salaries are signed.

    Hump / Kwon getting literally about double what I thought they were worth if re-signed.

    Licht probably super high on himself today. He better keep his ego in check

  44. Jeffbuc Says:

    We didn’t get robbed. We made out with something. Everyone knew we were releasing him. And he wanted to go to the eagles. They could have easily waited until we released him and signed him. Now at least we have a 6th round pick. The same pick Tom Brady was picked with. We have an extra chance at getting a diamond in the rough. For a player we were releasing if we couldn’t trade. Antonio brown only got a 3rd and 5th. And he is the best in the league. You act like teams were ringing lights phone off the hook offering 2nd and 3rd rounders for him and he turned them down to take the 6th. That is for sure the best deal he was offered for a player we were cutting. Win win for everyone involved

  45. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Get Mathieu!

  46. D-Rome Says:

    4 years $36mil for Humphries, GTFOH! That’s crazy for him. Congrats to him and to the Bucs for not being foolish.

    Looks like Bonzai was wrong again about the Bucs signing Kwon and Humphries

  51. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    In our situation over the next couple of years we need all the draft picks we can get and we need to pick wisely…..

    We need younger, cheaper players to balance our roster with the highly paid players……

    And….if players like Devin White or Ed Oliver are possible….we need to trade down a couple of spots (not too far)……perhaps with the Giants, Jags but not any further than the Dolphins….

    And yes…..the Giants & Jags are potential trade partners……would want to move into the 5 position to assure the QB of choice and keep other teams from trading up to 5.

    I’m confused, why are you keeping secrets? Why is your so called info about the depth of what went on told in confidence? Exactly who and what are these sources protecting? If this guy was a bad actor, shouldn’t fans know about it?

    Is this stuff that can be mentioned after the trade is finalized?

    Inquiring minds want to know- also, if you really do know more, perhaps you might considering not dangling it to us if it’s not going to be revealed- I don’t see the point of your boasting about inside knowledge- it’s rather frustrating from my perspective as a fan.

    Hump to the Titans

  81. MDFree Says:

    Well I know one thing, Jason Licht is gonna have one helluva load of draft picks this year with kwon and Hump signing for big money. Can you say compensatory picks?? If we as fans haven’t already known, the nfl is taking notice of just how talented our roster has been and it shows what a fine job Jason Licht has done as gm when it comes to scouting talent. Although however maybe it’s best that we stay away from the splash plays in fa this year. Cause Jason definitely doesn’t have a good track record with that.

  82. Season Is Over Says:

    Remember when the media tried to convince everyone that Jackson was toxic in Philly and that is why he left? Normally, toxic people are not brought back and signing contracts for three years. Another Tampa fallacy.

  83. Rob Says:

    If Antonio Brown is worth a 3 and a 5, Jackson probably got the Bucs a 7th rounder in 2025.

  84. Season Is Over Says:

    Yes, I agree, Rob. The exiting news is we know how good Licht is at drafting in the late rounds.

  85. DB55 Says:

    Now trade McIceCream for a bologna sandwich and the transformation is complete

  86. rrsrq Says:

    one thing I am learning is when players “step out of line” and supposedly look out for themselves (because we fans know everything that goes on behind the scenes) and really have no idea of the make-up of a person, we think the players are property of the team because they are under contract (AB, DeSean and even Lev Bell), we label them. the one thing that players know is their inflated value in the league, they know they are one injury away or some one else coming in to take their job, so they try and make the best moves for themselves, like any of us would do in job or a team that you were not happy with – good for the players that got to the pinnacle of their professions and takes full advantage of all the benefits that go with it. That includes Hump and Kwon, even David Irving for doing what he wants to do (even if I do not agree). You can leave your teammates to hang out to dry, but you can also be shipped off at the whim of a coach, GM or owner. These guys are not property.

  87. Joel Says:

    I can’t imagine why a top talent player would want to get out of a team with a losing culture…

    Here he’s called a “cancer. But a guy who milks the team year in and year out (#93) is kept around.

    And some people can’t figure out why the Bucs finish last in their division every year…

  88. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    For what it’s worth….here is one source for the deal…..

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to trade wide receiver DeSean Jackson to the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Network reports. NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Derrick Gunn reports that the Eagles sent a 2019 sixth-round pick and 2020 seventh-round pick to the Buccaneers in return for Jackson.2 hours ago

    Is there any wonder why the Bucs finish last every season?

  95. Rod Munch Says:

    Hump got $8m from the Titans…

    For FA that’s about right, you’re going to overpay and he is certainly overpaid at $8m. I’d have been OK with keeping him at $6m.

    Anywho now the Bucs have just destroyed the depth chart at WR, so that’s gonna be an issue. If they sign someone in FA then they really hurt their chances at a comp pick, so the best thing might be to shop around 6th they got for D-Jax for someone elses #3 WR.

    We’ll see how it goes, but I’m not worried about… yet.

  96. Jonathan Lipnicki Says:

    Hump got $9 mil per year actually. That sure seems rich…good for him.

  97. AlteredEgo Says:

    So now we need to find a starting WR and LB…

  98. doolnutts Says:

    Joel — The difference here between all those other players you mentioned is that is our 3/4 receiver really worth 9 mill? It is basically WR2 money(jackson was getting 10). It sucks to see him go but this was the right move. 9 million was just too steep imo.

  99. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh wait, Hump got $9m?!? WOW. LOL! Even for FA that’s massively overpaying.

    Anywho, every dollar helps the Bucs in the comp pick race, so good for Hump. I’m sure when he ends the season with 55 catches for 515 yards and 3 TD’s they’ll start talking him up as a HOFer, and with Mariota throwing to him those are HOF numbers.

  100. Licht sucks Says:

    Jackson makes pro bowl …. America does squat but it will still not be Winston’s fault. 2020 BA retires and we start all over. It’s a Bucs life

  101. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We could have probably kept Hump. for $6…….but we didn’t have the $6

  102. cmurda Says:

    Word is D Jax and the Bucs 2020 7th rd pick to the Eagles for the Eagles 6th rd pick. Before it was reported that we gave up a 2019 7th rd pick. Doesn’t sound like a big deal and it probably isn’t but it wors out better to be next year’s 7th since I expect at least 1, if not 2 compensatory picks.

  103. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I think there is too much gripping going here. Does anybody believe Belichek would have kept these guys instead of letting them walk?

    Nope…he let’s the high priced talent work somewhere else when they become FA’s and then turns those compensatory picks into role players on a championship team.

    Of course he also gets a hometown discount from the straw that stirs that drink…Brady. If JW blows up this year do we suppose he’s going to give us a discount to remain competitive? Just askin’ I honestly have no idea.

    And of course there are the sneaky ways to try and bust the cap. Pay the player one thing publicly for football, and then hire him somewhere else…in the Glazers case..let them work at your newest toy the Vinoy in St. Pete and pay them big time to speak at the conventions you’re looking to attract. Jerry Jones has been famous for this trick.

  104. cmurda Says:

    Maybe TBBF. Look, nothing but love for the little fella. He went from undrafted free agent to getting paid 9 million a year. Honestly though, he’s not even worth 6 mill a year. He’s stricly a slot receiver that has a tough time playing on the outside. He’s very effective underneath but we have others that can step right up. We lost 3 starters now and quite honestly, I think we were smart to let them go. Especially if it all leads up to getting the Honey Badger. I want him in our secondary. He instantly changes the secondary to competence.

  105. Pickgrin Says:

    Well at least that gives us back the 6th rd pick we gave to AZ for getting BA….

    We better make that 6th rd pick count dammit – with all the work they put in to get it – posturing for weeks like we were gonna keep DJax when it should have been obvious to all that it was just a big (transparent) ploy to try and sucker some team into giving up a pick before we had to cut him in a day or so….

    If DJax is worth a 6th – then surely McCoy is worth a 3rd….

  110. Rod Munch Says:

    Pickgrin – The Bucs didn’t give up a 6th for Arians, they swapped a 6th for an Arizona 6th, so they do get a pick back, but it’s also a late round 6th, which when you consider all the comp picks in prior rounds is basically a 7th.

    But they got something.

    Anywho does anyone actually know the terms of the deal, all the early reports I saw, which most likely were fake, said the Bucs got two picks, a 6th and a 7th, now it’s the Bucs gave up a 7th? That’s lame if correct, Licht should have been able to get more than that. There’s no way with Hump getting $9m/year that D-Jax’s salary was a concern.

    Go bolts

  127. Pa Privateer Says:

    Suggs to Arizona

  128. Miller5252 Says:

    If someone will give a first for Amari Cooper then Mike Evans is worth 2 first round picks.

  129. Pa Privateer Says:

    Tyrann Mathieu to Chiefs for 3yr 42mill

  130. John Says:

    Are we targeting anyone in free agency joe??? Are you hearing anything??

  131. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Issaic haggins

    The most valuable player we have on our roster is OJ Howard because of his age, ability & cheap salary…..& Vita Vea would be 2nd…….maybe Godwin

  132. Rod Munch Says:

    Telling you guys, just blow up the defense, trade/cut everyone not on a rookie deal – except for David, he’s this generations Brooks and needs to retire a Buc. Anywho then play nothing but young guys – what are they going to do, be worse than the 32nd defense again? Hardly.

    Then with the cap space get Bell, get another WR and a guard and just try to outscore everyone while the young defense takes it’s lumps and hopefully improves. Yes, you’ll have a garbage defense for at least a year, but so what, does anyone really think this defense is going to not be garbage next year?

  133. Figures Says:

    Just pathetic.

  134. Dapostman Says:

    About time Licht has figured out that other teams free agents aren’t the answer. They have been a colossal bust in most cases coming to Tampa. Build through the draft and get picks when guys you develop go to other teams. Keep reloading with young talent.

  135. Figures Says:

    This whole team will be garbage next year. AGAIN

  136. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Unfortunately, I’ve been warning everyone that we can’t afford any of these FAs that have been trotted out……Trey Flowers…..Gone…..Landon Collins….Gone…..Honey Badger…..Gone…..

    It simply isn’t going to happen……we need the Djax money to sign some of our other unsigned players & our draft class…..

  137. Figures Says:

    6-10 will be considered a good season

  138. JimmyJack Says:

    Why is everybody complaining? Y’all been wanting Jackson gone for months.

    Bucs fans can be quite bizarre

  139. Licht sucks Says:

    Why y’all so down guys. We got top 5 talent at every position Barber, Winston, Smith, Hargreaves… my God look at the talent Licht has accumulated. Can’t believe we’re not a Super Bowl favorite every year! Average to below average talent at EVERY position except Evans…. Licht sucks!

  140. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    Way to stand top of the free agent signings going on Honey badgers gone

  141. JimmyJack Says:

    Our problem hasn’t been talent. It’s been fundamentals. Can’t buy Free Agents to cover up poor fundamentals. Kinda surprising y’all don’t get it yet.

  142. Rojas Says:

    Eric Berry expected to be traded. I would trade for him.

  143. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    Oh wait maybe you have another D-Jax Story

  144. JimmyJack Says:

    I can’t believe we traded away our captain of the offense.

  145. Rod Munch Says:

    Who actually thought the Bucs were going to sign any big names? We literally go through this every single year, people say dumb stuff like don’t resign Smith, just get Brown in FA, he’ll absolutely want to come here… Honey Badger, no big deal, he’ll take less to play here…. Mosley? He’ll literally be on the next plane.

    The last big FA to come here was D-Jax, and even that was a mid-tier signing.

    The Bucs have to seriously overpay people to even listen to them. They literally made the angry ginger the highest paid center in the history of the game – based off one pretty good season. That’s how the Bucs have to operate until they actually start winning. Arians might help here but the Bucs don’t have a lot of space to play with – certainly not with the insane numbers this offseason.

    But it will be OK. The Bucs don’t lack top end talent, and Dirk was a goof who couldn’t get anything out of anyone. But in any case this isn’t a one year turnaround, I think the Bucs can be in that 8-8 range this year, but it’s going to take more than one offseason to take one of the worst defenses in the history of football and make it even average.

  146. StoutGospel Says:


    Yup! Just yup!

    Go Bucs! Land Quinnen!

  147. scbucsfan Says:

    Bite the bullet and sign minor FAs, take the compensation picks and go 4-12. Don’t make stupid moves to hope for mediocrity. Build for 2 seasons from now.

  148. JimmyJack Says:

    Rod Munch I agree with you but 8 wins is my minimum expectation. Less is a failure.

    I could care less what any of the fans think. You guys were touting SB runs after we signing Jackson. Your proclamations mean very little.

  149. Defense Rules Says:

    FA has just started & we were never going to be players early-on. Joe was just chumming the waters with names like Honey Badger & CJ Mosely. We were never in play to sign them because (tada) … we’ve got too many high-priced players already. We’re now reaping what our fearless leader Jason has sown. So we all need to chill for awhile. Except SpoutDribble … you keep blaming your spell-checker Sunshine.

  150. scbucsfan Says:

    Rod Munch you are crazy. Bucs have always spent on FAs, just haven’t done a good job with it. And DJax was one of the top of his class.

  151. Figures Says:

    I hate it when people say
    “I could care less” which means you could in fact care less than you do.

    Instead of “I couldn’t care less” which means you literally could not care any less than you do.


  152. Licht sucks Says:

    So fundamentals kept VG3 from being a shut down corner and Rojo from being a 1500 yard back. Probably kept Roberto from being the next Vinatieri also! We all know the coaching sucked , A few of us said that from the day Dork was hired. Nice to know with BA in charge We will have 22 pro bowlers with this roster that Licht has put together.

  153. StoutGospel Says:

    Gump Licht told this previous offseason by his wife….”don’t you DARE lose that W2″…cause….well….yeah.

    Mathieu to Chiefs.

    Haven’t trade GMC at the Combine.

    Haven’t yet traded (or dealt with) Brate’s contract.

    Ahhh…Joel, Ed, Marcie, Bryan……should Licht still be here?? Just a thought.

    The Djax trade was a good one, MUCH BETTER last offseason at the deadline.

    8-8…IF…WE’RE….LUCKY 🙂

    Oh, just “coach them up”. To save my W2 perhaps. Go Bruce! And company.

    Go Bucs! Land Quinnen!

  154. JimmyJack Says:

    Bruce Arians only took this job because he sees a good core of players to work with. He didn’t throw his hat back into the ring to take on a rebuild.

    Calm down and let this man teach the Bucs how to play fundamentals and how to prepare for a game.

    Let’s get good first then we can get great!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  155. Rod Munch Says:

    scbucsfan – I didn’t say the Bucs don’t spend in FA, they do spend, overspend on 3rd tier talents as Licht thinks three 3rd tier talents = one 1st tier talent. Anywho what I said is the Bucs don’t ever get TOP FAs, they overpay for talent because people haven’t wanted to come here in years.

  156. Rod Munch Says:

    Wait, this is by far the best argument the Hump backers have… Funchess got $13m? LOL! Is that true? It can’t be… If true then the Hump backers are right to say he should have got $10m.

    I don’t believe that $13m number, it must be fake news.

  157. BucEmUp Says:

    No Honey Badger. Signed with the Chiefs

  158. AlteredEgo Says:

    Mathieu to Chiefs…..42/3 years….Bucs can’t compete on or off the field….Jason done run this franchise into the ground….and we still have Jameis

  159. Defense Rules Says:

    Rod … A good take on where we’re at. Agree wholeheartedly that “it’s going to take more than one offseason” to turn this ship around. Like Ira wrote earlier today, this is a major restructuring that we’re undertaking. But not just for the defense. The offense is still missing a few critical pieces (RB, RG, #3 WR & hopefully a new RT, not to mention a quality backup QB).

    Granted the defense probably needs more work than that, but if need be we could probably get by with signing 1 starting-caliber CB and get the rest by signing our own FAs (like Taylor) and via the draft. I suspect we’ll completely revamp our S/Ts also before all is said & done (P, K, LS). All that’s doable IF we draft well.

  160. Rod Munch Says:

    Defense – The offense is fine, just needs some tweaks. On the other side it’s literally the worst defense in football, they should just blow it up and start over and spend that money on the offense in the meantime.

    Then again once teams blow their money on these top guys, it’s possible the 2nd tier players might end up being more affordable than thought. Then again the Bucs always get 2nd and 3rd tier guys and give them top money, which is the problem.

  161. joestang Says:

    Licht feels vindicated that he got a 7th round pick for Jackson. Licht cant even get a first or second pick right. We just pissed another player from the system with nothing in return. FIRE LICHT.

  162. Belligerentbuc Says:

    Fans are making Licht to be a scapegoat when he was never allowed to hire his own coach.

    Lovie was already here when he arrived and Koetter was promoted by the Glazer Boyz.

    Give him a chance like all other GM’s have had…2 coaches, heck even just one.

    To all the Jameis bashers, ask yourself if Aaron Rodgers would have had the same level of success with our D and Oline. Oh wait, he never even made the playoffs the last two years.

  163. RODNEY J ALLEN Says:

    I read a tweet that said we get this years 6th round pick from them n they get our 7th round pick in 2020 from us

  164. RODNEY J ALLEN Says:

    Also hump signed with titans 4yrs 36mil I believe was what he got

  165. JimmyJack Says:

    Belliegeren……..Great point that basically gets totally overlooked.

    I like our new HC and expect the team to respond. If we start winning all the whining goes away. Then folks will start talking like they always liked Jason. Goes for the QB too.

  166. cmurda Says:

    That Funchess contract has a MAX value of 13 mill if he hits all incentives. He won’t. I bet it can be as low as 5 mill.

  167. cmurda Says:

    I love what we are doing. If we need to reload, it needs to be next year. If we don’t land some marquee free agents, which I believe will be the case, we will clearly see if the problem with this team was coaching.

    P.S. I have to laugh at all the hate Licht gets. The same guy many of you villify just watched Kwon who he drafted, Hump who he signed as an undrafted FA, and DeSean who he traded for get big contracts. He can’t be all bad if other teams covet our players.

  168. DB55 Says:


    Jon Robinson probably picked Hump, Lynch crazy ass listened to brooks who bankrupted a once championship team and a 6th and 7th round pick is crap for djax especially when you consider Gruden got a 1st rounder for amari Cooper but wtfdik

  169. Wesley Says:

    We gave this bum exactly what he wanted, should have traded him to Cincinnati. #firelicht

  170. HeavyE Says:

    At least we got something????? Lol!!!!

  171. Playaction Says:

    Too little too late.

    They should’ve traded him in season when he initially started being grumpy.
    Waiting this late and acting like love sick teenagers trying to hold on to unrequited affections really backed them up against the wall and prevented the Bucs from getting more than a sixth rounder in return.

    Late round picks for the Bucs wind up either being cut or packaged to move up in the draft.

  172. Chris Cotten Says:

    Welcome to Cap Hell

  173. unbelievable Says:

    LOL at a 7th rounder.

    This organization absolutely sucks when it comes to trades, regardless of the GM.
