PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Could you imagine a DeSean Jackson return to Philadelphia?
According to a report from ESPN’s Tim McManus, Jackson would be “intrigued” by a possible return to his original team.
Days prior, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Eagles are likely to pursue the 30-year-old receiver, who 90-percent of fans voted they would welcome back in October.
Jackson, who has 39 catches for 644 yards and three scores this season, will be one of the top free-agent wide receivers after the season. The Eagles are incredibly thin at wide receiver and it would make some sense to target Jackson, who is still one of the league’s most dynamic deep threats.
On the other hand, Jackson has missed seven of his last 28 games dating back to last season and just turned 30-years-old.
The Eagles controversially cut Jackson after the 2013 season, immediately following the release of a story citing Jackson’s gang ties as a reason for concern.
