‘Come Back, Brother!’

DeSean Jackson’s new head coach REALLY doesn’t want him to leave Tampa … ’cause Bruce Arians tells TMZ Sports he desperately wants to keep the WR on the Bucs!!!
“Hey! Just come back, brother! I love ya. I know how good you are. I’ve been playing against you forever!”
Of course, it’s unclear if D-Jax himself wants to stay … the wideout was disgruntled with his role on the team for nearly all of 2018 — and reportedly even requested a trade.
In fact, when we got him out at LAX last month … he told us straight-up he’s still unsure if he’ll suit up for Arians and the Bucs next season.
But, Bruce tells us he’s going to do his best to convince the 3-time Pro Bowler to stick with Tampa … saying they’ve got a face-to-face meeting set up for next week.
“He’s under contract. I love him. We’ll just see how this thing goes.”
