It's looks like DeSean Jackson's time in Tampa Bay is just about to come to an end. Jackson insinuated he's been released on his Instagram, but there are other reports he hasn't been cut yet. Regardless, Jackson will most likely start the 2019 season on a different team. The question is, where will he go? There are more than a few teams that need wide receiver help and could use the speedy veteran. Here are the three most likely landing spots for the former Pro Bowler.
1. Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore needs receiver help for its young quarterback, Lamar Jackson, and the team already has a rich history of trading for or signing veteran receivers. Derek Mason, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith and maybe now DeSean Jackson? The move would give the Ravens a better vertical passing threat, which they would miss if John Brown leaves in free agency.
2. Philadelphia Eagles

This is reportedly where Jackson wants to get traded to. With Golden Tate potentially leaving in free agency, the Eagles need another receiver to play alongside Alshon Jeffery, preferably a deep threat. Jackson fits that role perfectly and, given reports the Bucs want to accommodate him as much as they can, this seems like the No. 1 spot right now.
3. San Francisco 49ers

One other option here is an incredibly receiver-needy team out west. After not getting Antonio Brown from the Steelers, San Francisco is still in desperate need for wideouts to play alongside Jimmy Garoppolo. They'll surely look anywhere they can to get a productive receiver and Jackson would fit into their scheme nicely.
