DeSean Jackson, a Seahawk? The thought blows my mind.

So the Eagles want to trade DeSean Jackson, huh? Well, the Seattle Seahawks would gladly take him.

There’s a rumor going around about Jackson possibly coming to Seattle — and they are beginning to pick up speed as fast as he runs down the field. According to a report from CBS Sports, the Eagles are trying to get rid of him before the 2014 NFL Draft and the Seahawks are reportedly interested. Why Philadelphia? Why get rid of him? After all he’s done for you! Out of five seasons, he gave Philly 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns with three 1,000+ yard seasons. Now they reportedly “don’t want him.”

Several teams have been asking about his price and what draft pick they would give up. He makes $10.5 million next season, which already rules out a lot of teams that could really use him. Philadelphia would like a third-round pick in return for this mighty weapon.

With the way DeSean Jackson works, he could become a real use to any franchise immediately. Seattle would be an amazing destination for him, especially since they recently lost their top 2013 receiver, Golden Tate, to the Detroit Lions. Who else to replace Tate but Jackson? It would certainly make them top contenders for another Super Bowl.

Questions will go unanswered until the Philadelphia Eagles find a team who can afford him and give up a third round draft pick in return.
