DeSean Jackson recently voiced his concerns about the lack of certainty surrounding his future with the Philadelphia Eagles.

With the franchise reportedly looking to trade the receiver, the recent events have not gone unnoticed by two teams in particular.

As reported by CSN's Derrick Gunn, the Eagles have already taken enquiries from both the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots.

According to league sources, the team has made it clear to Jackson that, although they are not actively shopping the 2014 Pro Bowler, they are listening to suitors should team's register an interest.

Jackson enjoyed a productive last campaign, making 82 receptions for 1,332 yards in a career year. And at 27-years old, clearly has plenty more time at the top ahead of him.

But a rumored personality clash with coach Chip Kelly has led to suggestions he could leave the franchise - with the price tag seemingly set at just a third round pick.

Even if Jackson is proving difficult to manage it would seem foolish of the franchise to let go of one of their star names, unless they are planning a raid on the NFL Draft for receivers come May.
