DeSean Jackson is back in the NFC East, where he will face the Redskins twice a year.

The early reports Monday had Jackson on the chopping block in Tampa, but the 32-year-old receiver teased something else may be afoot.

News of the trade – with Jackson going from Tampa to Philly – dropped later Monday afternoon.

Jackson, who left the Redskins on a three-year, $33.5 million deal with the Buccaneers in 2017, is owed $10 million on the final year of that contract.

He totaled 91 receptions for 1,442 yards and seven touchdowns – with an additional touchdown on the ground – over two seasons in Tampa. He played in just 12 games last season, starting 10 of them, while hauling in 41 catches for 774 yards and four touchdowns.

Jackson, a second-round pick by the Eagles in 2008, spent the first six years of his career in Philadelphia. He's caught 53 touchdown passes over the course of his 11-year career.
