Ian Rapoport is reporting that Jackson has been traded to Philadelphia. Also, the Eagles could look to bring in another defensive tackle along with Jackson, but as of right now, the Jackson signing is a positive move for the Eagles.

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.

The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to sign former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson.

Weather warning for snow and ice to continue into Monday
Cloud will increase from the south-west later today with rain arriving in parts of Munster and south Connacht towards evening. The Queen Elizabeth II bridge across the Thames at the Dartford crossing was closed due to strong winds on Sunday morning.

This would be the third year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract.

The Bucs win because they were going to cut Jackson anyway.

Jenna Laine and Tim McManus of ESPN.com first reported that Tampa Bay was looking to deal Jackson and the Eagles were his preferred destination.

New Orleans weekend forecast: Warm with rain possible
Wednesday will continue windy and showery with strong northwest winds, which will ease later in the day and on Wednesday night. Better make sure to bundle up this weekend, as Met Éireann have forecast some serious cold weather - and snow.

Jackson's yards-per-catch surged last season when Ryan Fitzpatrick played in eight games, leading Jackson to publicly support Fitzpatrick as the team's quarterback.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were not expected to retain Jackson, who was due $10 million for the 2019 season, none of which is guaranteed, considering their lack of cap space. Despite being 32, Jackson is still among the fastest wide receivers in the game. He caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns last season, averaging 18.9 yards per reception, a league-best for players who made at least 30 catches.

LeBron James put on AD-like minutes restriction
In addition to the reduced minutes, it is likely that James will not play in any back-to-back games the remainder of the season. By limiting the playing time for James, Los Angeles seems more than happy to start losing games and drop in the standings.
