DeSean Jackson doesn’t appear to be happy in Tampa Bay.
The 31-year-old wide receiver has requested a trade from the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network, citing unidentified sources. Jackson “hopes to find a team that can better make use of his talents,” the report says. Tampa Bay, however, has resisted the request ahead of the Oct. 30 trade deadline.

Jackson got off to a strong start this season as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick filled in for Jameis Winston, eclipsing the 100-yard mark in three of his first four games. But Jackson hasn’t had the same chemistry with Winston.
The three-time Pro Bowl player spent six seasons in Philadelphia after the Eagles selected him in the second round (49th overall) of the 2008 draft. He played for the Redskins for three seasons before signing a three-year, $33.5 million contract with Tampa Bay in 2017.
Jackson had 50 catches for 668 yards and three touchdowns for the Bucs last season.
