Vincent Jackson Done For Season

December 30th, 2015

jameis and vincent jacksonVincent Jackson will end his season on injured reserve with a knee injury.

The Bucs released the news today.

Now it’s decision time. Jackson, who turns 33 in a couple of weeks, is due about $10 million next season. That’s a big price tag for a No. 2 receiver, but the Bucs won’t owe him any money unless he’s on the September 53-man roster.

Jackson finished this season with 33 receptions for 543 yards in nine starts.

Joe would love to see Jackson return, if healthy. There’s been no official discussion of the extent of his knee injury.

Reality, though, must be considered. The Bucs should be studying free agency deeply for a quality complement to Mike Evans. There’s no reason to think Louis Murphy, coming of November ACL surgery, would be that guy.

    Sorry, man, We’ll miss you. Get better and come back stronger next year.

    V-Jax: you were a class act with the Chargers. You’ve been that and more with our Bucs. Heal and rest. Come back next season so you can play with a winning Tampa Bay Buccaneer squad.

    I’d like to see them pick up a faster wr, like a Martavis Bryant type that can stretch the field with speed and still has that vertical reach. Maybe Bell can get his sh!t together this off-season and become the number 4 wr.

    With his rapport with others, stellar career and knowing all receiver positions wouldn’t he make a great contribution coaching receivers if he can’t make it back? Just saying. He has the right attitude, respect of all who know him and knowledge. Why not?.

    I kind of assumed he was already done for the season.

    Anyhow I personally think we should def keep VJax. He is a class act in and off the field, and veteran presence we need in the WR room. Plus, until he was injured this year, all he did was put up 1000 yards every season he played for us. Restructure his deal if needed but keep the man for one more year!
