The Eagles are entertaining offers for DeSean Jackson, and the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots are interested in acquiring the three-time Pro Bowl receiver, according to CSNPhilly.com.

In return, Philadelphia wants at least a third rounder. The Eagles reportedly told Jackson last week that they're not actively shopping him but are listening to offers.

Philadelphia listened to offers for Jackson last year and at the time asked for a second rounder in return. The Eagles then lowered those expectations by seeing if they could get a middle-rounder, but no trade came about.

The 27-year-old tied a career high with nine touchdowns last season and averaged 16.2 yards per reception, a mark that ranked third among wideouts with at least 80 receptions. He's now two years into a five-year deal worth $51 million, with $10.25 million to be paid as a base salary for this upcoming season.

The Eagles have no comment on the rumors of Jackson's possible departure, according to CSN Philly.
