Jackson No. 44 In NFL Network Top 100

June 11th, 2014

VjaxRamsThe Bucs’ big-money wide receiver, Vincent Jackson, has earned one of the NFL’s highest honors. His fellow NFL players voted him into the NFL Network Top 100 of 2014.

Jackson was rolled out as No. 44 tonight during the weekly countdown show.

Jackson, 31, didn’t have his best season last year — 78 catches, 1,224 yards and seven touchdowns — but it was still impressive, especially given that defenses were able to shade coverage his way consistently after Mike Williams was lost with a hamstring injury.

Congrats to V-Jax! Last year, he ranked 52nd in the players-only vote.

Lovie Smith and Jeff Tedford desperately need Jackson to at least duplicate what he did last year. Mike Evans’ healthy presence should make that easy.

  2. Bucky23 Says:

    They just have it away. David and McCoy still to come

  3. PRBucFan Says:

    The female voice on the show also said we were one of the few losing teams on this years list with multiple players on the list.

    That’s awesome 🙂

    Went to nfl.com to watch Vincent Jackson’s segment from the show and it’s missing! Figures.. -_-

  6. Me First Says:

    That makes him.# 9 overall receiver

  7. Max Says:

    If Jackson is at 44 then David has to be here somewhere, guessing mid 30s.

  8. PRBucFan Says:

    LVD and McCoy will be top 20 so far so good.

    VJ, Verner, David, McCoy, MJ

    All great chances.

    Congrats, Mr.Jackson.
    If you were on a large market team, you’d be top 20.
    And as classy off the field, as he is talented on it.
    My favorite player( McCoy a close second), and the best WR to ever play for this franchise.
    His play is incredible to watch!

    Glennon, the top rookie QB last year, must be coming up soon! Right, MGM?

  11. phil Says:

    Vincent Jackson is the best free agent signing ever made by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  12. Theodore Says:

    “Mike Evans’ healthy presence” – We are already are qualifying Evan’s time on the field.

    You’re a funny guy Sully.

    @ Bonzai

    He certainly deserves to be in it!

    (Yup I’m trying to stir the pot up) 🙂

  15. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Don’t worry though we the members of the fictitious MGM will save room on the bandwagon for all you naysayers, we’re all Bucs fans afterall

  16. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    On topic, VJAX deserves it. I know Herm says you are what your record says you are, but I truly believe last season was just a fluke of random bad events and unfortunate circumstances that spiraled out if control. The team and the coaches were not as bad as some would make it seem. Killer schedule didn’t help. Things are looking up though

    Hardy Nickerson.

  18. tampamac Says:

    biff barker,

    You could throw Simeon Rice’s name in there too.

  19. phil Says:

    I like Hardy but I think Hardy is number 2 behind Jackson. I think once we have some other guys up and running Jackson is going to have really big numbers.

  20. Nick H Says:

    Dipshits man, do you people REALLY think even the MGM believes he’s anywhere on this list or is it yet another horrible attempt at a jab? I might be purposely missing the attempted humor but holy shit you people are as ignorant as it gets

  21. Stanglassman Says:

    Without Hardy coming here in FA Jackson maybe still in Cal. playing for the LA Buccaneers. Therefore Hardy is #1 in my book!

  22. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    Ok- good points.
    Then Vincent Jackson is the best “Offensive” free agent ever!
    Although I didn’t start the “best free agent ever”
