A star NFL wide receiver wants to play for a different team. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson expressed his interest in leaving the team, despite having one year left on his contract.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that DeSean Jackson had grown frustrated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and would like to move onto a different franchise in 2019.

So where does he want to go?

Well, according to his recent appearance on the Simms and Lefkoe show, Jackson wants to take his talents to Los Angeles. "I would like to end up in LA, being a Ram...Sean McVay, you know we got some connections from when I was in DC," he said on the show.

Jackson finished the 2018 season with 774 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was the league leader in yards per reception this season with an average of 18.9 yards per catch.

He has connections to Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay, who was the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins during Jackson's tenure there. Jackson went over 1,000 yards in two of three seasons with the Redskins before signing a three-year deal with the Buccaneers.

With one year left on his contract, however, he might have to suit up for the Buccaneers once again.
