Philadelphia Eagles fans won’t have to wait too long to see former wide receiver DeSean Jackson play at Lincoln Financial Field again.

Jackson, who signed with Washington after getting released by the Eagles earlier this month, will be joining the Redskins against the Eagles at the Linc on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m.

The Eagles, who won the NFC East last season with a 10-6 record, will also be playing at least four primetime games. That number could change when the league unveils its flex scheduling, starting in the fifth week of the season. They will also play at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.
