DeSean Jackson is saying goodbye, but the wave (and waive) is not yet being reciprocated. Peters was originally set to make $7.75 million in 2019, but the two sides came to a new agreement today, one that is worth a maximum of $10 million with $5.5 million guaranteed.
After being released Friday, it took Malik Jackson just a couple days to find work as it appears he'll be going to another championship caliber defense.
Jackson is coming up on the final season of a three-year deal that he signed in 2017 to come to Tampa Bay. At the time, the team had concerns about his attitude and lack of attendance in team meetings.
This start is only somewhat fresh, as the receiver spent the first six years of his career in an Eagles uniform. Jackson produced 142 receptions for 2,702 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns with the Eagles' NFC East rivals.
Reports surfaced back in 2018 that Jackson wanted out of Tampa Bay. He caught 62 passes for 912 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie while leading the National Football League with 50 punt returns. He hauled in 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games.
