Report: Patriots 'inquired' about Eagles WR Jackson
The opinions, analysis and/or speculation expressed on the PFW Blog represent those of individual authors, and unless quoted or clearly labeled as such, do not represent the opinions or policies of the New England Patriots organization, front office staff, coaches and executives. Authors' views are formulated independently from any inside knowledge and/or conversations with Patriots officials, including the coaches and scouts, unless otherwise noted.
The Eagles are apparently “listening to offers” for Jackson and both New England and the 49ers have at least inquired about acquiring the receiver who caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards with nine touchdowns last fall and has averaged an impressive 17.2 yards per catch over his six NFL season in Philly.
The Eagles are apparently “seeking at least a third-round pick and potentially more for Jackson.”
Jackson is two years into a $51 million extension he signed with the Eagles and scheduled to have a base salary of $10.25 million this season.
This report comes on the same day that New England officially announced the re-signing of receiver Julian Edelman. The Patriots also signed free agent Brandon LaFell this week, while the team has been linked in free agency to the likes of Kenny Britt and Steve Smith, although the latter signed with the Ravens.
What do you think of this report about New England’s interest in Jackson? Would you trade for Jackson? Let us now with a comment below!
