A star NFL wide receiver reportedly wants to play for a new team.

DeSean Jackson had reportedly grown frustrated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and would like to move onto a different franchise in 2019.

ESPN NFL insider Josina Anderson provided the latest on Jackson this afternoon, saying that he feels it would be best for him to be on a different team next season.

Anderson mentioned three teams as potential destinations for Jackson in 2019:

  • Washington Redskins
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Los Angeles Rams

Jackson has had a difficult second half of the 2018 season. He had just one catch in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

The Bucs' star wide receiver wasn't at the open portion of practice earlier today.

"No DeSean Jackson at today's Bucs practice session open to the media. Also, no Gerald McCoy or Jason Pierre-Paul, both of whom have misses early-week practices and played on Sunday. Demar Dotson was out on the field, but wasn't participating in drills with o-linemen," Eduardo Encina tweeted.

Jackson has 774 yards and 4 touchdowns so far this season. He'd likely be highly pursued on the free agency market.

Stay tuned.
