Veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson has signed a new three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles through 2021 according to Herbie Teope of NFL.com.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.  Jackson's reunion with the Eagles occurred Monday after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shipped the wide receiver and a 2020 seventh-round pick to where his professional career began. In exchange for Jackson, the Eagles sent a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. 

Jackson entered the league in 2008 with the Eagles and became a three-time Pro Bowler through six seasons in Philadelphia before the team, under then-head coach Chip Kelly, elected to go a different direction in March 2014 and released him.  He has since played for the Redskins and the Bucs but made it clear during a press conference Thursday that he is happy to be back in the place he considers home.  “I want to finish my career here. I want to finish where I started,” Jackson told Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philly.  Jackson also announced he will wear the No.10 jersey he previous wore as an Eagle after striking a deal with wideout Mack Hollins to give it up.

For his career, the 32-year-old Jackson has 589 catches for 10,261 yards, averaging 17.4 yards per catch, and 53 touchdowns.
