4 Most Likely Trade Destinations for DeSean Jackson

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been informed that DeSean Jackson wants to be traded before the deadline on Tuesday. They claim they won't move him, but we all know how things change in the NFL. With this game changer looking for a new home, there are plenty of teams who could use his talents. 


Here are four trade destinations for DeSean Jackson. 

4. Carolina Panthers

This would be a good move for Jackson and a great move for Cam Newton. He's one of the most prolific passers in the game and has somehow done so without a real top threat out wide. Jackson would have the luxury of having defenses focus on Newton and McCaffrey out of the backfield, opening up plenty of opportunities for deep plays. And Cam has the arm to hit him anywhere on the field.

Alshon Jeffery has been great since he's returned from injury and Nelson Agholor is still a big part of this offense, but there has to be more for Carson Wentz at wide receiver. Jackson may not receive the same amount of targets as he does in Tampa, but he will have the luxury of receiving less attention from the defense as shutting this offense down would be impossible. 

2. Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins are the current leaders of the NFC East and they're somehow doing it without any help at wide receiver. Right now, running back Chris Thompson is leading them in catches followed by tight end Jordan Reed. Paul Richardson is the top wideout right now and only has 16 catches on the season. That's like one good game for Julio Jones. With only seven passing touchdowns on the year, Washington can use a player like Jackson, who can explode for a huge score at any second. 

1. Houston Texans

When one man goes down, another has to step up. The Houston Texans are another team that's leading their division but now find themselves needing additional help at wide receiver. With Will Fuller out for the year with a torn ACL, an explosive playmaker is needed to line up across from DeAndre Hopkins. Keke Coutee is more of a slot receiver, leaving Jackson to be the perfect fit for this offense. Just imagining Deshaun Watson finding Jackson deep for scores. It's easy to picture.
