It’s time to reach into the bottom of your dresser, throw your old No. 10 DeSean Jackson jersey in the dryer and put it on a hanger back in the closet.
Or is it?
While the Eagles traded for Jackson yesterday -- trades cannot become official until the league year officially begins on Wednesday -- he might have given us a hint as to what jersey number he will wear in Philadelphia.
Take a look.

Jackson couldn’t wait to be back in Eagles green, playing Madden Tuesday night and catching virtual passes from his new QB, Carson Wentz, but if you freeze the video, you’ll see Jackson is wearing No. 84 in the game.
In an Instagram live when the trade rumors were swirling, Jackson said “We’re gonna rock that 10 mode. Get back to that 10 guy.” However, I think he was talking more about a mentality than physically wearing the No. 10 again.
Jackson wore 11 when he was with the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and, we think that number is probably off-limits with the Eagles. Currently, Mack Hollins is wearing the No. 10 on the Birds, so it’ll be interesting to see if, and for how much, Hollins gives up that number.
My guess is that the number in Madden was auto-generated and when you see Carson Wentz reach back and launch a 50-yard pass to Jackson streaking towards the end zone, it’ll be the old No. 10 running under it and dancing his way to six.
If I’m Mack Hollins, I make Jackson sweat it out and open his checkbook to get the number back, though.
