One of the true joys of the first DeSean Jackson Era with the Philadelphia Eagles was knowing that, on any given play, the Birds could just send DJacc straight down the field, chuck it deep, and pray.
Well, fans can hope for plenty more of that "CHUCK IT DEEP TO DESEAN" mentaility as the Eagles have reportedly traded to bring Jackson back home to South Philly.
While Jackson's first time around ended in something of a whimper during the Chip Kelly tenure, it's safe to say most fans are excited for his second go around with the Birds.
Lane Johnson posted about the reunion with a classic celebration photo:

Carson Wentz is ready to add a lethal deep threat to the offense.

DeSean himself shared a post from the @NFL's account about the reunion. "LEEEEEEEEGOOOOOOOOOOO," DeSean added.
And he posted a photo on Instagram from back in the day.
He also went on Instagram Live and seemed rather excited. "We gotta get back to that 10 mode."
"It ain't over. Gotta get back to where I started."
You can watch a sampling of that in the below tweet.
