“I Have No Comment On That”

October 20th, 2014

VincentJacksonThe swirling weekend NFL.com report of teams seeking the services of Vincent Jackson via trade had Joe seeking Jackson’s reaction this afternoon.

The Buccaneer’s captain was found in the locker room and Joe asked him for his feelings about those reports.

“I have no comment on that,” Jackson said, before returning to activities on his smartphone.

Jackson did not practice today. He was on the field with his position group wearing a floppy hat. It’s not uncommon for Jackson to get days off to keep his body fresh.

The NFL trade deadline is in eight days.

    Jackson deserves to play on a winning team.

  2. Skyline Crew Says:

    Hopefully we don’t trade him.

  3. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Joe, any word on Evans playing against Minnesota?

  4. JBo$$ Says:

    Going to Seattle, you heard it here first.

  5. tha truth is... Says:

    he’s a goner

  6. buctebow Says:

    Well if he is traded, that certainly tells you that the Bucs are setting themselves up to make wholesale changes again next off season. Hard for me to be happy about them trading one of our few “star” players and hard to believe that even more turnover will help in the consistency on play.

  7. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Wearing a floppy hat? Didn’t he just have like a week off already to “keep his body fresh”? LMFFAO!

  8. Joe Says:

    Joe, any word on Evans playing against Minnesota?

    Why wouldn’t he? Sorry, Joe knows that is three words.

  9. unbelievable Says:

    We will not receive anything that is equivalent to Jackson’s talent.

    There is no way.

    I know he’s had the dropsies this year, but dude is playing with a broken wrist right? And he’s only 2 years removed from his best season as a pro. Also the only vet WR we have.

    But, I have a bad feeling that this will happen…

  10. DHutch Says:

    I don’t want to see him go, but I respect him enough to let him go. He’s too good. He’s also on the downside of his career and deserves a shot to play for a contender.
    I wish him the best.

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Hold out for a 2nd or at least a 3rd round pick….or keep him!!!

  12. The Next GM Says:

    We should trade him for Incognito

  13. BoJim Says:

    Need him at least till the end of the season. Evans needs him. But I would like him to go to a good team. He’s been great for us.

  14. Chef Paul Says:

    Yup, he deserves better than this dumpster fire team.

    His window is closing. We wont be winning by the time he retires. The least this team could do for him is trade him for a cold meat sandwich to a real contender, then let him eat the sandwich. He’s getting wasted and not getting any younger.

  15. cory Says:

    I know seeing a player for player trade is rare but that’s the only way I can see that being justified. Mike evans isn’t ready to be the number one guy and behind that are only more question marks.If we can somehow get another corner or safety maybe but not a mid round pick

  16. Buddhaboy Says:

    deserves got nothing to do with it

    just like mankins deserved to get traded to the bucs.

  17. Luther Says:

    I would argue that Mike may already be a number 1 except for the injuries. I still don’t think trading your best offensive player for picks is a good idea. When have we EVER turned a trade for picks into a great player…only a few times in our existence.

  18. Jim Walker Says:

    They better get that 1st round pick back they lost with Revis!

  19. BirdDoggers Says:

    The sticking point will be his contract. I don’t see a team giving up a 2nd or 3rd round pick and taking over a contract that pays Jackson big money next year, not to mention Jackson’s age. He’s worth a 2nd or a 3rd, just don’t think a team will pay the freight.

    I could see a team like Seattle making a run at him as another poster said. The problem is all the dead money Seattle has wrapped up in Harvin. Adding Jacksons contract might be a stretch.

  20. BucsQcCity Says:

    Love him but trade him. He’s cut next year. We have a good young talented WR corp. We need OL/DL/MLB/FS/NCB and possibly a QB. This is a rebuilding year

  21. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    We have a young talented WR corp? You do realize we are talking about the Bucs right? Talented compared to who? USF?

  22. BucsQcCity Says:

    Sorry but potential is there with Evans, ASJ and even Herron.

    Put that into perspective with the OL, DL and the DB. There’s no way we need another 10m$ WR with these 3.

  23. buccanAy Says:

    Maybe Seattle or New England…Brady would surely love to have a real top-flight WR to make a run. Although, I’d like to get some draft picks for him, don’t think the picks will be high enough to warrant a trade. I really don’t like the Mankins trade, and don’t trust this regime to make trades of any kind, especially with Belichick, who seems to fleece us every time.

  24. Soggy Says:

    This division is seeing who can tank the worst.. we are winning so far..Nobody can tank like us..

  25. Buccfan37 Says:

    Go ahead Lovie, pick the carcass clean to the bare bones and get some scraps in return, somebody else’s throw aways. Maybe a low draft pick. What a bunch of geniuses at the helm of this pirate ship.

  26. ElioT Says:

    If they can get the 4th Rd pick that they wasted on Mankins and maybe a 6th or 7th as well, the Bucs should jump all over this.

    Love VJax but it’s pointless for him to waste his last few years here. It’s also absurd for the Bucs to carry his contract next year.

    VJax is a great receiver but he is not a difference maker at this point, especially on this team.

    So many needs…

    Go Sucs!

  27. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Count me amongst those who would hate to see VJax traded but think it a good move IF the proper compensation is there. I get that trading away one of your best players seems counterproductive to winning, but for whatever reason (players not buying in to what the coaches are selling? Coaches not knowing how to best utilize the talent currently on the roster? Lack of talent? All of the above?) this team is currently a train wreck and needs something to change going forward. Maybe Lovie and Licht need to acquire a lot more players (draft and free agency) that fit the schemes they want to run? A trade could free up cap room as well as add a pick? Dunno but for whatever reason just about every player on this team that was also here last season has regressed. It’s likely coaching and/or not fitting the schemes.

  28. jerseybucsfan Says:

    Only in Tampa. Is there rumor of the saints trading colston, atl trading roddy… car didnt trade smith. .. the bucs are always letting the talent go and keeping the trash… Q. Black, M. Clayton, etc… how about keep jackson and cut… L. Johnson, M. Barron, bowers, eds., m. Johnson, Dotson., McCown, you know all the players that suck…

  29. jerseybucsfan Says:

    All jackson has done since he has been here is play like a professional football player should… these loser forgot what a real player looks like… im on the fence… trade jackson and I may leave with him… its been a long time of losing in tampa what 2 winning seasons since gruden left…smh.

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    jerseybucsfan…you poor thing. Break out the violins…

  31. Buc1987 Says:

    Win or lose until the day I die buddy. Until the day I die. Matter of fact they can bury me in a creamsicle jersey if they like. That would make me a happy dead man.

  32. Brandon Says:

    With his ridiculous salary and declining performance, they’d be lucky to get a 6th rounder for him. I think more likely is he makes it through the season only to get cut or have his salary slashed for 2015. If somebody offers a pick in the neighborhood of round 4, they’d be fools to pass it up. Jackson isn’t long for this team.
