DeSean Jackson: Who Should Be in the Mix for Dynamic Playmaker?

Just when you thought free agency was slowing down at the wide receiver position, speculation has begun to swirl that has things ramped back up to a fever pitch.

As Comcast Sports Net Philadelphia reports, the Eagles have been contacted by at least two teams in regard to wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

According to a source, the Eagles are believed to be seeking at least a third-round pick in compensation for the 27-year-old Jackson, who ranked ninth in the NFL with 1,332 receiving yards in 2013.

Given Jackson's age and productivity, it would seem there would be approximately 31 teams scrambling to the phone to make that deal, but it isn't that simple.

There's the small matter of Jackson's $12.75 million cap hit in 2014, according to Spotrac. And the "me-first" behavior that has left Jackson at odds with head coach Chip Kelly, according to CSN's Geoff Mosher.

Still, there are also plenty of teams (including one playoff team from last year in particular) who could badly use Jackson's ability to take the top off the defense.

Here's a look at the leading candidates, including the two teams that have already reportedly placed a call to the City of Brotherly Love.
