Report: Raiders contact Eagles about acquiring WR DeSean Jackson

The Raiders are among three teams who have spoken to the Eagles about a possible trade to acquire wide receiver, DeSean Jackson according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

The Pro Bowl wide receiver has been rumored to be on the block lately as there are reports of friction between him and head coach Chip Kelly.

The Raiders have signed one free agent receiver this off-season when the locked up former Green Bay Packer, James Jones on a three-year deal. Their starters last season were Denarius Moore and former undrafted free agents Rod Streaterand Andre Holmes.

Without a viable number one receiver on the roster, the interest in DeSean Jackson is understandable. Jackson has three 1000-yard receiving seasons to his credit and has averaged over 1000 yards per season over his six seasons in the NFL. The Raiders haven't had a 1000-yard receiver since Randy Moss had 1005 in 2005.

The Eagles are said to be asking for a third round pick in trade.

It would be a homecoming of sorts for Jackson who grew up in Southern California and attended Cal Berkeley.
