Bucs trade DeSean Jackson to the Eagles

'Tampa it was a great experience, but things didn’t work out,' the star wide receiver posted on Instagram.

TAMPA, Fla. — One of the biggest names for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is now an Eagle.

The Bucs traded away star wide receiver DeSean Jackson to Philadelphia Monday, freeing up an additional $10,000,000 in their cap space.

Jackson had posted on Instagram shortly before the NFL Network made the announcement, "Tampa it was a great experience, but things didn’t work out."

Jackson petitioned for Ryan Fitzpatrick to remain the starter over Jameis Winston and then requested a trade at the 2018 trade deadline, according to ESPN.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
