NFL Rumors: Oakland Raiders, New York Jets most likely to trade for DeSean Jackson

The saga of DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles is beginning to come to a head as the trade talks intensify, and according to Ian Rapoport, at this point, the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets seem the two most likely to pull the trigger on bringing the veteran in to help the explosiveness of their offenses.

Both places do make sense at this point.

With the Raiders just bringing in Matt Schaub, it would be great to get him a legitimate deep threat like Jackson to help the offense flourish a little bit more.

On the other hand, though, with the recent acquisition of Michael Vick at QB, the Jets would also be smart to bring in Jackson not only for the familiarity he has with Vick, but also to take some of the pressure that has been put on free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker.

Whatever the case may be, the willing trade partners are starting to slowly take shape, with these teams from each coast as the front runners.
