The Carolina Panthers have lost Steve Smith, Ted Ginn and Brandon LeFell all this years free agency and their current wide receiving corp is the weakest in the whole of the NFL.

But it may just be possible that they are looking to address this severe deficiency in a big way.

It’s not known yet if the Panthers will make this audacious bid attempt, but ESPN’s Ed Werder hinted that Carolina could entertain the idea of trading for the flamboyant All-Star wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

From the twitter of Evan Silva: "Ed Werder also said on SportsCenter that the #Panthers “might entertain the idea” of trying to trade for DeSean Jackson."

The San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots have already made trade inquiries about Jackson but unfortunately for the fans of those teams, nothing ever came of them and they seem dead in the water.

Jackson seems incredibly unsettled in Philadelphia at the moment.

If you'd have asked anyone if they thought there was even a chance of the 27 year old leaving Lincoln Field they probably would have laughed.

But somehow it has transpired that either the Eagles are actually interested in looking for a deal for the 2008 draft pick, or Jackson has just got his wires crossed. 

Taking to Instagram yesterday, he posted a picture which contained the following quote:

"The most expensive thing in the world is trust. It can take years to earn & just a matter of seconds to lose."

Maybe that tells you all you need to know.
