$20 Million Guaranteed For DeSean Jackson

March 9th, 2017

Team Glazer coughed up $10 million for washed up Vincent Jackson last season, so the new deal for DeSean Jackson must have them throwing back fine scotch in celebration.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the DeSean Jackson’s new deal is for three years at $35 million with $20 million guaranteed.

That’s a good deal on paper, for sure. The key is Mike Evans doesn’t have to be paid gargantuan Bucs until 2019, the third — and optional — year on DeSean Jackson’s deal.

Don’t bitch, folks. Michael Clayton got $10 million guaranteed in 2009 and he couldn’t catch!

The Bucs have flexibility and that’s exactly what you want.

Well done, Jason Licht.

    Any speculation that we might go get Pryor Joe?how about Poe or Shephard?

  7. d-roca Says:

    Wooohoooo good job licht. Signing baker too. Go bucs

  8. Joeypoppems Says:

    It is a good deal for both sides. Super excited

  9. Jameisbucsfan Says:

    This is awesome news! Having a great speed option on the outside is priceless. Jameis is a hell of a recruiter because I guarantee that other teams were offering close. It seems like djax knows that we are close and I believe that he will push us over the edge. Now he just needs to show up at every workout to build the chemistry.

  10. Eric Says:

    Great news. This guy is no “blocking icon”.

    Next to the “Sammie the goat” my favorite nickname.

  11. captjimbo Says:

    If he works out as well as Galloway did life is good.

  12. tmaxcon Says:

    great job licht…

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh just YUMMY!

    I’m smiling bigger than Evans in that picture!

  14. JabooBuc Says:

    Phallus says bad deal because Jason Licht was involved. He was also overheard saying “why won’t he call me?!”

  15. K-mac Says:

    whatsw the deal with chris baker?

  16. Bald Head Says:

    Now let’s get TE JARED COOK!!!

  17. Dano Says:

    Great! No more more 8 men in the box!

  18. Topdoggie Says:

    I am happy as hell. Barring injury we are playing football in October.

  19. Dano Says:

    Need pass rushers !

  20. Joeypoppems Says:

    Every team is paying football in October lol

  21. Jason Says:

    @ K – mac Buccaneers signed Chris Baker.

  22. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Hell yeah man.

    Best weapon we could have added in terms of what we needed; and only a couple million more per year than Kenny Britt who doesn’t have 1/4 the production of Jackson for their careers

  23. BucGator Says:

    This huge!!! Getting him, Baker, Rodgers, Conte and Gholston locked up give us so much flexibility in the draft!

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    Awesome signing! Bucs are on a roll.

  25. '74 Bucs Fan Says:

    EXCELLENT!! Great job Licht the Pilot!

  26. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Need to get McDougal signed,

  27. D-Rome Says:

    You’ll get no complaints from me.

  28. Ed Says:

    The throwing lanes just opened up for Jameis as if teams try and run cover 2 to eliminate the 20 yard sideline plays that ME is unstoppable with, DJax can run those deep posts as well as anybody. Jackson has never been on a team with a superstar receiver like Evans. The signing helps both of them and makes Winston capable of putting up Drew Brees and Matt Ryan numbers.

  29. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Good contract for both parties. Throw in Baker and its been a solid 1st day. And it’s just now 5pm so we still have a ways to go. I’m in favor of giving Poe a 1 year prove it contract and drafting a DE. Our DLine would instantly be a top 5 unit. Close already

  30. DB55 Says:

    The culture will change.

  31. Pickgrin Says:

    Welcome to Tampa Bay DJax!!!

  32. Greg Says:

    Works for me….Glazers are printing money anyway…they need to spend it

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Not a bad deal, I actually thought he would have gotten a 4-year deal with a big signing bonus from someone. I really wonder about his health but with the Bucs flush with cap space this year and next year it’s worth betting in a guy to come in a contribute immediately.

  34. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    DallasBuc, where you at?

  35. Trubucfan22 Says:

    11.3 mil a year. Not bad. Worth it if stays healthy. The guy is dynamic. I think his he also has a pretty fun personality. I think he will gel very good in the locker room.

    Love having a playmaker opposite Evans

  36. SOEbuc Says:

    OMG can’t wait to see teams not double coverin ME13 and having a another pro bowler on the other side. Not to mention killa Cam.

  37. DB55 Says:

    Cam should have been in the pro bowl considering he led all TE in TDs. Ijs

  38. tdtb2015 Says:

    I hope Licht continues using last years formula and drafts a speedy WR.

    Welcome Mr. Jackson!!!

    Go Bucs!!!

  39. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That’s only $2m more total than I said he was worth, so I’m happy. I had said $11m per year. This works out to $11.6m per year.

  40. Topdoggie Says:

    @joeypop lol I’m so happy I got my months mixed up.

  41. Mike Johnson Says:

    Mike Johnson very rarely gets excited about a signing…But…I’m on my 2nd Crown Royal of the evening!! Ball out Jackson. Lets catch some balls, score TD’s and bring home that big prize for Buc fans. Ok..Y’all..bout as excited as you’ll ever see me get!!

  42. Gilhealy Says:

    This is HUUUUUGE. Big League!

  43. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    😀That’s Whus up MJ.

  44. CannonFodder Says:

    Awesome! DK gets the speed he needs and it will open up the run game for whoever is carrying the ball. Excited about the draft. Go Bucs!
