Jackson stunning departure from Philadelphia comes just two years after he signed a five-year contract extension. He was due to make $10.5 million in 2014 and was owed $30.5 million over the remainder of his deal, but none of that money was guaranteed.
Recent reports surfaced that the Eagles were looking to trade Jackson.
Jackson, 27, set career bests in receptions (82) and yards (1,332) and tied his career high with nine touchdowns last season, his first under new coach Chip Kelly.
