It has been a wild few days for the Philadelphia Eagles as the confusing saga of star wide receiver DeSean Jackson's future with the team plays out.

Sources close to Jackson say there is "no way" he will play in Philadelphia in 2014, and a number of teams from around the league are beginning to reach out about acquiring the speedster, including the New York Jets.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Carolina Panthers and Oakland Raiders are the latest teams to place a call to Philadelphia.

The Panthers would be interested for obvious reasons after the departures of Steve Smith, Ted Ginn and Brandon Lafell this offseason left new addition Jerricho Cotchery as the team's top receiving threat.

The Raiders have always loved to have speed on the offensive side of the ball and need all the help they can get with their passing game.

Carolina and Oakland join the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and the Jets as teams who have reached out regarding Jackson.

Whether or not Philadelphia can get enough compensation to make a deal worthwhile remains to be seen, but they certainly have interest and may be able to drum up a bidding war.
