Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the veteran defensive tackle is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles soon that will be worth $30 million. "Looking forward to my next destination", Jackson wrote.
When asked is Jackson assured him he wanted to play for the Bucs, Arians said, "Yeah, I mean that's basically how the conversation ended".
According to ESPN's Josina Anderson from December, Jackson grew unhappy in Tampa Bay after a heated exchange with then-head coach Dirk Koetter over Jackson not practicing because of a hand injury.
Despite Trump's Promises, The Trade Deficit Is Only Getting Wider
More worryingly, some analysts now warn Trump will "up the ante" to distract attention from the deteriorating trade situation. His approach was to try and discourage Americans from buying goods and services from overseas by introducing tariffs on them.
Of course, Jackson would rather be released now while there is a flood of money for free agents. According to ESPN, the Bucs are still seeking a trade partner for the 32-year-old Giants-killer, who is supposed to be on the books for $10 million next season, though none of it is guaranteed.
Since becoming a starter for the Broncos in 2015, Jackson has been among the best non-elite interior pass rushers in the National Football League, which is to say below the Fletcher Cox/Aaron Donald sphere.
Bucs starter Jameis Winston struggled to make a connection with Jackson. His playing time was reduced in the second half of last season, but he's still an effective interior pass-rusher.
