Will Mack Hollins give up his No. 10 jersey to DeSean Jackson?
Since Mack Hollins wears number ten for the Philadelphia Eagles, will he give it up to DeSean Jackson for the 2019 season?
The Philadelphia Eagles have a familiar face back in town. This past Monday, Howie Roseman gave a call to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers front office to see what the price was for his old friend, DeSean Jackson. Fortunately, Jackson spent plenty of time over the last year and a half convincing Tampa’s front office to get rid of him. This time around, they listened. And after a sixth-round pick was sent their way, DeSean Jackson got sent back to the team that drafted him.
Clearly, Jackson is excited to be back. Considering the fact that he never wanted to leave in the first place, it seems like it’s been a goal of his to get back in an Eagles uniform. It almost happened two years ago before he joined the Bucs, but Jackson and the Eagles couldn’t come to an agreement on a contract. This time around though, the Eagles not only traded for Jackson but they restructured his deal as well, to keep him here for the next three seasons.
DeSean is excited to finally be back
While this feels like a match made it heaven – there’s only one issue for DeSean. He doesn’t have his number ten jersey available. Back when Jackson was drafted, he chose to wear number ten for the Eagles. After they released him, he switched to number eleven with the Washington Redskins and the Buccaneers. Being that Carson Wentz is number eleven for the Eagles, it’s quite apparent that Jackson is not going to be able to get that number on the Eagles. Jackson has to try and get his old number back from the third-year veteran wideout, Mack Hollins.
Will Hollins give it up?
Jackson arrived in Philly on Tuesday night, as the trade is going to become official on Wednesday with the NFL league new year starting. So on Wednesday, Hollins and Jackson crossed paths for the first time. That’s when Jackson discussed the possibility of getting his number ten jersey back. Although Hollins did not agree to the exchange, he is leaving the possibility open. It would be shocking if Hollins doesn’t cave. Being that Jackson is a well-respected veteran around the NFL, especially in Philly, we’re sure the young wideout will understand.
