While the Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly in the market for a safety, they also are taking a look at one of the more accomplished wide receivers currently rumored to be on the trading block.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Eagles are at least interested in attaining the services of Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson:
Vincent Jackson still generating trade interest. Among the more than 4 teams calling around: Eagles, Pats, Seahawks. Bucs want real value
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 26, 2014
The Tampa Bay Bucs do not appear to be content to settle for a deal similar to that which sent Percy Harvin from Seattle to the New York Jets.
In that deal, the Seahawks picked up a conditional draft pick that could fall as low as the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The Bucs are looking for a haul befitting of a top-tier talent, despite a noticable dip in Jackson's production in 2014 (25 catches, 344 yards, 2 TD).
It is unclear if the Eagles are willing to mortgage a big part of their future for a chance at upgrading the present. With Tuesday's trade deadline fast approaching, we'll likely get the answer sooner rather than later.
