DeSean Jackson posted a video on his Instagram story of himself playing Madden as an Eagles receiver, catching passes from Carson Wentz. 

"You see Wentz," Jackson says in the video. He then points out Wentz was 28 for 41 with five touchdowns in his Madden game, while Jackson caught 12 balls for 177 yards and three touchdowns. 

At the end of the video Jackson says, "Ooooh, it's on! Let's go Philly!"

Wentz tweeted this on Monday. 

Jackson, 32, was reportedly acquired on Monday by the Eagles. Philadelphia sent a 6th round pick in this year's draft to Tampa Bay in exchange for the veteran deep threat and a 2020 7th round pick, according to Adam Schefter. Tim McManus reports Jackson's new contract with the Eagles is a 3-year deal worth $27 million

Interestingly, in the video, Jackson is wearing No. 84. Jackson wore No. 10 during his tenure with Philadelphia, but currently Mack Hollins wears No. 10. And his current number 11, is worn by Wentz, of course. 

Jackson, 32, spent the last two seasons in Tampa Bay recording a combined 91 catches, 1,442 yards, and seven total scores with the Bucs. 

Jackson was originally the 49th overall pick of the Eagles in 2008 and spent his first six seasons becoming a star in midnight green, before eventually being released by Chip Kelly in March of 2014 after a story about Jackson's "gang affiliations." 

Even at 32 years old, Jackson is still one of the game's most dangerous speed receivers, averaging 18.9 yards per catch in 12 games last season.
