News broke early Sunday morning Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson has asked the team to trade him ahead of this Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.There are plenty of discussions happening about whether or not the team should or should not trade him Shaquil Barrett Jersey , with ESPN’s Jenna Laine providing some insight into the front office’s position on the matter.First things first, we can probably rest assured the team will not trade him to a team they still have to face in the 2018 season. This eliminates not only their division rivals, but the Washington Redskins, New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys.There are however, 22 other teams who could potentially pursue the speedy veteran who has shown this year he still has big play ability. Who are they, and what could the Bucs get in return?Looking along the lines Laine reported on, Tampa Bay would likely be looking for a player in return who can help the team win this year, with added bonus to players or picks who could also help the franchise win in the future.TRADE PARTNER: GREEN BAY PACKERSMark Hoffman-USA TODAY SportsThe Packers are in a sensitive position given the fact Aaron Rodgers is 34-years old and has been injured many times over the past few seasons. Still, there is a feeling within the franchise they can compete in today’s NFL.Less than stellar defensive play and some inconsistency on offense has plagued Green Bay and forced the team to have to outshoot opponents more often than not. Adding a weapon to Rodgers’ arsenal would help, and if they feel losing safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in exchange for such a weapon, a deal could be found.Tampa Bay currently has four safeties on the roster with veteran Chris Conte lost for the year. Outside of Justin Evans, none have a secure hold on the other starting position.Injecting a player like Clinton-Dix not only gives him a chance to regain his Pro Bowl form from 2016, but may provide the Bucs an opportunity to secure the back end of their defense now and for years to come.TRADE PARTNER: NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTSQuinn Harris-USA TODAY SportsThe Patriots are not scared of trading high draft picks for players they feel can get them over the hump right now.New England currently sits on top of the AFC East, but the age of Tom Brady, long-term health of tight end Rob Gronkowski and uncertain outlook of head coach Bill Belichick could find this team buying high to get a guy who can give them that little bit extra.Brady’s longest pass this season is 55-yards. Jackson has longs of 58, 75 and 48 in three separate games.Josh Gordon has shown some flashes in the new system, but could benefit greatly from gaining another running mate, as could slot extraordinaire Julian Edelman.Adding Jackson would give New England arguably the most electric offense in the NFL and help sustain the career shelf-life of the quarterback.In exchange, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would likely be looking at an addition by subtraction situation where Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries see expanded roles in the offense. Added draft picks would aid in plugging any future holes starting in 2019.For a front office unsure of their job security in 2019, this would be one of the more surprising moves due to the lack of impact player brought in for 2018. But, given the rapport Winston already has with Humphries and the improved connection we’ve seen in short periods between he and Godwin from 2017, it could happen.TRADE PARTNER: PHILADELPHIA EAGLESBill Streicher-USA TODAY SportsThis is one of the more popular destinations for Jackson to land as a return to Philadelphia would certainly become one of the bigger stories in the league this year.Philadelphia hasn’t come back from their Super Bowl run with the greatest success this year, but they are still very much in the mix for an NFC East division title and post-season berth.They’re well aware of what Jackson can do, and can still do, after witnessing his four catch 129-yard and one touchdown effort against them in Week 2 of this very season.What would the Eagles offer up? Well, unfortunately it doesn’t seem they have a whole lot to offer the Buccaneers which would help in an area of need. There are some intriguing young cornerbacks the Eagles could potentially leverage in a package with a mid to late round draft pick.However, all of the corners in question have had issues themselves and could bust as much as they could fly in Tampa Bay’s secondary.TRADE PARTNER: DALLAS COWBOYSScott Taetsch-USA TODAY SportsGross. Seeing Jackson in a Redskins uniform was one thing, but seeing him in a Cowboys uniform would be something suitable for Halloween.Still Caleb Benenoch Jersey , the Dallas Cowboys aren’t calling this season in and are still trying to find things to do to help quarterback Dak Prescott get back on track.Trading a first-round pick for wide receiver Amari Cooper will help, but there’s more which could be done.Stretching the field will not only help Prescott and his new target, but it would also help running back Ezekiel Elliott continue his solid start to his career.The Cowboys have scored just three points more than the New York Giants who sat at 1-6 entering Week 8.While Dallas’ record is much better than the Giants’, they can’t be confident in what they have going right now.Again, future draft picks don’t outwardly help the Bucs, but giving guys like Godwin an opportunity to capitalize on early promise could prove to be a solid decision for the future while maintaining some of the offensive effectiveness the team has shown thus far.TRADE PARTNER: OAKLAND RAIDERSKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThis is my personal favorite, and that’s why I left it for last. My trade scenario?Tampa Bay sends DeSean Jackson and a 2019 third-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for cornerback Gareon Conley and safety Karl Joseph.Conley was very much made the scapegoat for a struggling Raiders defense. Last week, in a 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks the Raiders surrendered 222-yards passing and three touchdowns to Russell Wilson.The benched former first-round pick played zero snaps on defense.So, Conley isn’t the issue. In fact, the Raiders secondary has done worse than ever with him on the bench.Well, if Oakland doesn’t want to play him, maybe the Buccaneers do?Karly Joseph is a safety who has shown many flashes of the talent which led to his also being selected in the first round coming out of West Virginia. He too has been a consistent rumor as a trade possibility for the Raiders this season.It’s clear Jon Gruden isn’t really interested in most of the young pieces he inherited when he was hired back to the silver and black sideline and it just so happens two of his young guys fit holes the Bucs need to fill.Jackson doesn’t fill any future holes for Gruden, but he does bring a one-year contract (essentially) which he can then dump in the off-season to free up cap space while giving Derek Carr a guy he can target early and often which might keep him healthy long enough to try and put together whatever Gruden has cooking.The third round pick is a bit high for my taste, but getting two young first-round picks out of it is worth the gamble.If both men panned out, then it’s highly likely Jason Licht would be back next offseason, and we all know what he can do despite missing a third-round pick.Following Week 8 where Jackson finally connected with Winston on a deep ball strike in the second quarter, and following Ryan Fitzpatrick’s insertion late in the second half, it’s possible the two sides could come back to center.Who the starting quarterback is moving forward may play a part in how the star receiver feels, but if the franchise’s general manager is being forthright, Jackson will likely finish the year in pewter anyway. In Washington’s first eight games this season, the team that scored first never fell behind on their way to victory.That streak remains alive after Sunday’s game in Tampa. Dustin Hopkins opened the scoring with a field goal, Josh Doctson scored the game’s only touchdown early in the fourth quarter and the defense forced four turnovers in a 16-3 win over the Buccaneers.Two of those turnovers came after Doctson’s score opened the lead to 10 points. Ryan Fitzpatrick was intercepted by Greg Stroman on the first play of the ensuing possession and Jacquizz Rodgers lost a fumble after Dustin Hopkins’ third field goal of the afternoon. Rodgers had the ball punched out by Ryan Anderson around the 18-yard line and the ball rocketed into the end zone where safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix fell on it for a touchback.In addition to Hopkins’ made field goals, punter Tress Way also helped out. He pinned the Bucs inside the 20 on three of his punts, which left Tampa’s offense with a lot of work to do if they were going to score points. With 501 yards, they did a fair amount of that work but they couldn’t finish when it counted and they’re now 3-6 on the season.Fitzpatrick’s first interception of the day ended the first drive of the day for the Bucs and it also came in the red zone. Cornerback Josh Norman picked Fitzpatrick off at the goal-line in the first of a series of miscues for Tampa on the afternoon. In addition to the other turnovers, kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a pair of field goals and defensive tackle Beau Allen was flagged for roughing Alex Smith on the first play of Washington’s touchdown drive.Any last hopes of a comeback ended when Fitzpatrick lost a fumble on a sack by Ryan Kerrigan one play after Mike Evans dropped a pass in the end zone with just under four minutes to play. The sack was the second of the day by the defense and Washington allowed two, which is a pretty good showing given they were down three starting offensive linemen.Things weren’t overly successful on offense for Washington otherwise. Their touchdown drive accounted for more than 20 percent of the yards that they gained all day, but they never turned the ball over and the win guarantees Washington another week in first place. They’ll host another first place team next week when the Texans bring their six-game winning streak to town.
