Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has four teams interested in him at the trade deadline. The Philadelphia Eagles attempted to trade for Jackson at the deadline.

The Eagles tried to give the Bucs a late-round pick for Jackson. Tampa Bay immediately declined the offer.

Jackson is the Bucs No. 1 wide receiver and is under contract through 2016 with a reasonable contract.

It is interesting to see that the Eagles were trying to acquire Jackson to help upgrade their wide out corps. The team views Riley Cooper, who signed a long-term deal in the off-season, a liability when he’s not blocking for the running game.

Jordan Matthews, the Eagles second round pick, has been getting increasing snaps. With out a deal for Jackson, Matthews could take Cooper’s starting position in the near future.
