The first crisis of the second DeSean Jackson era has been solved.

Jackson, a favorite in Philly from his first stint there, is coming back to the Eagles. Philadelphia acquired him in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The only question was whether he could get jersey No. 10 back, which he wore during his first six years with the Eagles. Receiver Mack Hollins took the number after Jackson left.

Eagles fans who have a No. 10 Jackson jersey in their closets can rest easy. Hollins is giving up the number, and felt pretty good about it in a funny Twitter post.

Hollins had a humorous way to let Eagles fans know he was giving his old jersey number to Jackson.

Jackson said he and Hollins “worked it out,” and presumably Jackson cut a check. Players often pay for jersey changes like that. Jackson made $11 million in base salary with the Buccaneers last season. Hollins, who was on injured reserve all last season after a promising rookie year in 2017, is on a four-year, $3 million deal.

Eagles fans should be happy to not have to buy a new Jackson jersey. And for anyone who invested in a No. 10 Mack Hollins jersey the last two years, well, you’re not so lucky.
