Patriots Express Trade Interest in WR Desean Jackson

How’s this for juicy free agent gossip? Hours after it was revealed that the Eagles were shopping around wide receiver, Desean Jackson, it was announced that the Patriots and 49ers had expressed immediate interest. The potenial trade could ship Jackson out of Philly for as little as a third round pick.

The acquisition of Jackson would give New England that true deep-ball burner they have lacked in recent years. While everyone should certainly temper their excitement, it is fun to imagine the possibilities in reclaiming an ultra-high octane offense, to go along with the newly-revamped defense.

The Patriots have already added one free agent wide receiver in ex-Carolina WR Brandon LaFell, while also resigining Julian Edelman to a four-year deal.
