There are reports that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is uncertain of his future with the team and not particularly thrilled about it. The Eagles are actively trying to trade Jackson, and now a report says that the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots have both picked up the phone to call about Jackson.

From CSN Philly:

"And, according to CSN’s Derrick Gunn, other teams are interested.The team has taken inquiries from the 49ers and Patriots, Gunn has learned from a league source, and notified the Pro Bowl wideout early last week that it’s not shopping him but is listening to potential suitors."

Gunn’s source said the Eagles were looking for at least a third-round pick, and it seems if that were the price there would be a long list of suitors for Jackson’s services. Either they know something about his locker room personality the public doesn’t or they’re in a bidding war it’d seem like.
