The Bucs may have other plans for the former star.

It looks like DeSean Jackson's time in Tampa Bay is over. It's always been though that Jackson could be a cut candidate, but it appears the team is going to try and trade him first. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that he is "destined" for a reunion with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team he spent the first six seasons of his career.

Multiple reporters have tweeted that Jackson has not received his release from the Bucs.

If things turn out as expected, Lynch will defeat Charlotte Flair to earn herself a spot in the championship match on April 7. Bryan retained the belt after hitting Ali with a Running Knee in midair thanks to some help from his associate Rowan.

It has cut funding to the United Nations agency that provides aid to Palestinians classified as refugees. Palestinians view him - along with Trump's administration - as blatantly biased in favour of Israel.

The breakdown in the numbers was also positive, with 67,400 new full-time jobs offsetting a loss of 11,600 part-time positions. The goods-producing sectors added 9,500 new positions following job gains in natural resources, agriculture and manufacturing.

It all makes pretty logical sense: Philadelphia's wide receiver depth chart is sorely lacking in playmakers, and Howie Roseman isn't afraid to be aggressive in the offseason and in free agency. Since becoming a starter for the Broncos in 2015, Jackson has been among the best non-elite interior pass rushers in the National Football League, which is to say below the Fletcher Cox/Aaron Donald sphere. Winston is expected to be the starter next season under new head coach Bruce Arians.

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. According to ESPN, the Bucs are still seeking a trade partner for the 32-year-old Giants-killer, who is supposed to be on the books for $10 million next season, though none of it is guaranteed. The Bucs are last in cap space, per Over The Cap, so it appears they want to trim that number.
