“I Still Think I Got About Five Years Left”

August 9th, 2017

Great news on Hard Knocks for those who think DeSean Jackson is a diva who just came to Tampa Bay for a final paycheck.

Jackson, 30, signed with the Buccaneers in March for about $11 million per season, with two of three years guaranteed.

In a relaxed setting at his new Tampa home, Jackson talked on the HBO reality series about his future. Joe was relieved to hear Jackson is looking deep into his future and seeing a ton of football in front of him, far beyond his new contract.

“I still think I got about five years left, before I’m at that point where I’m like, ‘Oh, my time’s up.'” Jackson said.

Beautiful music right there. It’s great that Jackson believes he has a ton more to give. That tells Joe that Jackson’s body really feels A+, which is what he told Jon Gruden earlier in the episode.

How cool would it be for Jackson to grind it out here for three more seasons and earn a second contract at 33 years old? Sort of what Vincent Jackson couldn’t pull off.

    DeSean fully aware of what he has stumbled upon. The initial stages of something Great!!! If you squint your eyes hard enough from the shore line you can see a tsunami wave coming.

    DeSean knows something special is being built, here in Tampa.
    He will become our new Joey Galloway, remember him ?
    No more stacking the box against us, and plugging our running game up.

    VJAX game was using his size to outmuscle DB’s. It was effective and worked for him but that style brings a lot of physical pounding with it.

    DJAX game is using his speed to blow by DB’s and Safeties…he doesn’t take the pounding that VJAX took. This is why I believe he can be like Joey Galloway and continue to contribute for five years if he really wants it.

    Bigger receivers decline at a faster past than smaller ones

    I loved seeing how good a relationship Mike and Desean have.

    I get a tinge of nerve that Mike could let the spotlight get to his head. That’s something that has affected players in the past and I can’t explain why exactly that worries me with Mike. So long as he just works like a “Savage” he should be just fine.
