According to ESPN, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded for DeSean Jackson from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jackson was traded after a career year in 2014 under head coach Chip Kelly, only to be cut that following March.

Last season, he caught 41 passes for 774 yards and four touchdowns. He also broke Jerry Rice’s record for most touchdown catches of 60-plus yards.

The Eagles will hope that DeSean Jackson can be that deep threat they were missing all season in 2018. The Eagles also brought in DT Malik Jackson today as a free agent as well. It looks like the Birds are gearing up for another Super Bowl run in the upcoming season.

via ESPN:

People traveling along I-480 in Cleveland on Monday might be distracted by three billboards located approximately 7 miles from the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ Quicken Loans Arena.

The first sign features “#23” in maroon with a crown on it on the court with four blue numbers, numbers that just happen to match the Philadelphia 76ers jerseys of Ben SimmonsJoel EmbiidDario Saric and Robert Covington.

The second billboard several hundred feet farther says “Complete The Process.” And the third says “#PhillyWantsLeBron.”

The 76ers will be in town to play the Cavaliers on Thursday night in a nationally televised game, but the team has nothing to do with the billboards, and can’t have anything to do with them, since that would be considered tampering. The billboards, which will be up for three months, were put there by Power Home Remodeling, a company based in Chester, Pennsylvania.

[anvplayer video=”4324429″]

Update: TMZ Sports caught up with Tinashe coming out of Craig’s in WeHo on Wednesday night and when she was asked to address the obvious IG flirting going on with the hoop star, she replied with a smile calling him her “boo thang” while laughing. See the video above!

Earlier this week, Tinashe shared a bedroom snap on Instagram, captioning the sexy shot, “Where’s bae,” see the post below:

However, what caught everyone’s attention was that Simmons replied, “Charlotte,” which is accurate since Philadelphia defeated the Charlotte Hornets 128-114 on the road the following night. If that’s enough, Tinashe, responded with two emojis, including a smile face with heart-shaped eyes.

Plus, back in February, Simmons also tagged Tinashe on Twitter, while trying to end a debate over which food is better: chocolate or spaghetti. See the post below:

https://twitter.com/BenSimmons25/status/966902860402147328

Only time will tell, if this is indeed just flirting or if their actually dating and developing a relationship but for now we will settle for her calling him, her “boo thing.”

VERSES – New Orleans, Louisiana – Your Favorite Bars From Nola

Video

 

Our new series VERSES will highlight some of your favorite artists of the past decade and some of their signature bars that define them. Whether it’s 10 months or 10 years, these artists and songs have made huge impacts in hip-hop!

Since it’s Fat Tuesday, and Mardi Gras is coming to an end, we wanted to kick off VERSES in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Garnering widespread acclaim and mainstream success at the end of the 1990s, rappers from New Orleans played an important role in the expansion of Southern rap. Their beats were fresh, the lyrics focused on New Orleans and good times, and took the localized bounce sound and brought to the mainstream.

Two labels, Master P’s No Limit and Birdman’s Cash Money, were the most important for New Orleans rapper. With its focus and distinctive sound, New Orleans rap remains wildly popular and that’s due to its rappers.

Which city do you want to see highlighted next? Let us know on social!
