He even posted a farewell to the Bucs on Instagram and Twitter despite not being traded or released by the team yet.

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to sign free-agent defensive tackle Malik Jackson to a three-year, $30m deal, according to multiple reports.

In addition to Jackson, the Eagles get a seventh-round draft pick in 2020, while a 2019 sixth-round pick heads to the Buccaneers, a source told Mortensen. Initial reports indicated the lineman would earn $10 million total.

Philadelphia Eagles Trade Michael Bennett To New England Patriots
New England is expected to send a 2020 fifth-round draft pick to Philadelphia in exchange for Bennett, according to Schefter. But at the same time, I know it' a business and you want to be able to make money whenever you get the opportunities to.

A second-round pick out of Cal, by Philadelphia in 2008, Jackson had some of his best games with the Eagles.

Jackson was set to make $10 million for the Bucs in 2019 with a full $10 million cap hit, but no dead money if released.

Last month, new Bucs coach Bruce Arians had a long sit-down with Jackson, a conversation Arians said at the National Football League scouting combine "couldn't have gone better". He averaged 18.9 yards per catch last season, despite the turmoil at the quarterback position in Tampa Bay last season. Also used extensively as a punt returner early in his career, he took four punts back for touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Eagles.

Kryzewski added he "would be surprised" if Williamson wasn't prepared for the ACC Tournament, which begins Tuesday. In 26 games this season, Williamson has averaged 21.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

The Jags moved on from Jackson to save $11 million in cap space after drafting his successor in Taven Bryan during last April's draft.

He was voted to three Pro Bowls during his six-year tenure with the Eagles.
