    Now you can definitely go to the back of your closet and break out your old DeSean Jackson jersey. 

    He'll be wearing No. 10 again with the Eagles. 

    Jackson, 32, officially signed his three-year contract with the Eagles on Thursday morning after a trade from the Bucs and will wear the number he wore from 2008-13 with the Eagles. 

    Since arriving to town this week, Jackson has already worked something out to get his number back from Mack Hollins, who had worn it since being drafted in 2017.

    [PHI] DeSean Jackson Reacts to Being Back With Birds

    The Eagles have welcomed former wide receiver DeSean Jackson back to Philadelphia. Jackson reacted to his second act with the Birds at a Thursday news conference.

    We worked it out. I definitely talked to Mack. I appreciate him letting me get that number back. Do some cool thing for the receiving corps, man. But that number, man. I don't know how much I gotta argue about that, man. I definitely did some great things in that number, so it's definitely great to get that number back.

    This happened on Wednesday: 

    Turns out … I was right. 

    "We worked it out. I'm good," Jackson said. "I'm back in the 10."

    After leaving the Eagles, Jackson wore No. 11 with the Redskins from  2014-16 and wore No. 11 again during the last two years in Tampa Bay. 

    Now, he's back in the number that made him a three-time Pro Bowler in Philadelphia and if you kept your jersey, you won't even have to buy a new one.
