DJax: It’s Not My Weed

December 27th, 2017
DeSean Jackson

Cops investigating.

Seems someone has some explaining to do. Specifically, to Bucs wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

A one-vehicle accident is being investigated by Tampa police because someone was driving a ride registered to Jackson and Jackson claims he wasn’t behind the wheel.

Whoever Driver-X is, per Mike Garafolo of, slammed a Chevy Silverado pickup registered in Jackson’s name into a tree along Westshore Blvd. in Tampa Sunday night — Christmas Eve no less! Per Tampa cops, Driver-X ran off on foot and abandoned the vehicle.

Tampa police questioned Jackson not just because of his trashed pickup but because cops found weed in the car, 6.3 grams to be exact. It wasn’t his pot, Jackson told police, but belonged to whoever was driving, documents Garafolo.

Per Garafolo, Jackson would not cooperate with the cops other than to cough up the name of Driver-X.

Jackson was contacted by police and later responded to the scene, the report states. Jackson initially declined to cooperate, then gave officers the name of the alleged driver, per a police source. Jackson declined to assist officers in getting the driver back to the scene, per the source.

“It was a friend of DeSean’s who borrowed his car while he was out of town,” Denise White, a representative for Jackson, said. “None of what was in the car was his obviously. He’s dealing with the person that was using it without his knowledge privately. The incident is being handled.”

Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht issued a generic statement where he basically said, in so many words, we know.

(Attention Second Amendment abolitionists: Joe doesn’t give a damn cops found two .38 caliber hollow points in the pickup. Big deal! Hollow points are perfectly legal to own in the good State of Florida. Without a gun, hollow points, or any type of ammunition, is useless. Even more worthless than the Bucs’ pass rush. What’s DJax/Driver-X supposed to do with two hollow points without a gun, throw them at a deer or a hoodlum?)

(Column intermission: Whenever Joe thinks of hollow points, Joe remembers a college buddy “Animal,” who hailed from Highland Park (Ill.) — not exactly a low-rent neighborhood. Animal was a good dude. A really intelligent guy. Something of an eccentric. Whenever Animal was bored, he would retreat to his basement room in the house he shared with Joe and a few others. Animal would pull his bong, and with a drill bit, carefully using only his fingers, customize a case of .45 shells into hollow points.)

Joe thinks this story is totally blown out of proportion and Garafolo and others with NFL Media must be bored out of their minds from writing/talking about how doomed the Eagles are without Carson Wentz.

Unless someone has the story of DJax taking a baseball bat to the jerk who destroyed his rig, Joe’s already done with this.

    Another low character signed by Licht. Glazers I hope your paying attention.

    The guy driving was the same guy riding shotgun in Jaboo’s Uber.

    Dear Joe,

    You put a reference to “hollow point” bullets in your story to virtue signal to the leftist, anti-gun crowd that loves the social justice spectacle that the NFL has turned into this season. I’m sure some outlet will refer to them as “assault bullets” or some nonsense.

  5. Lamarcus Says:

    With the season the way it is this is a minor issue.

  6. Pelbuc Says:

    GM Licht is not having a good week.

  7. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    It is probably nothing, but Desean has been said to have gang ties before, when he was in Philly

    Jackson made a big splash a couple years ago, but not in a good way. There were rumors of his gang ties that were so rampant it may have played a part in the Philadelphia Eagles letting him go. It was a pretty big deal and many people decided to throw their opinion out in support of or against Jackson.

    One person who was adamant that Jackson is a good guy and the Eagles were in the wrong is Richard Sherman who is from the same rough city and grew up with him. Like J.R. Smith, Jackson has been seen throwing up gang signs in games and in particular against DeAngelo Hall of the Washington Redskins. Now they are on the same team.

  8. Rob Says:

    Lets be real folks. If you drug tested every NFL player tonight, how many would test positive for an illegal substance of some kind? Countless. The only news is that more don’t get caught. Rampant weed use in all professional sports that don’t really drug test without telegraphing when it will happen is the real story but nobody really cares. Go Bucs!

  9. Conte Piscatelli Says:

    I’d say maybe it was Swaggy Baker driving the truck, but we all know he wouldn’t have been able to “run” from the scene.

  10. Danny Says:

    @Joe … The people who read your column come from all walks of life and backgrounds with a multitude of different perspectives. We’re here to read about our favorite football team. Leave the political antagonizing for Facebook, please. (That goes for commenters, too.). 😉

    A liberal, one of many, who doesn’t think the Second Amendment should be abolished.

  12. JonBuc Says:

    And here is the cherry 🍒 on top of the shat sundae that is the 2018 Bucs Season…

  13. Clodhopper Says:

    I believe him. I’d tell that friend to get lost and ruin his own life and quit trying to ruin Jackson’s life tho.

  14. webster Says:

    So a friend does something stupid and im supposed to be blamed for it? Some of you guys are idiots.

  15. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Prolly shoulda grabbed the weed and dropped the gun like a real gangster….
    jason licht strikes again, lots of cameras around that area but im guessing its just some dude in a hoodie they catch on the video… was djax in north carolina?

  16. Pepsi Says:

    why would you want to not cooperate? seriously…

  17. AlteredEgo Says:

    Maybe Djax is a very clever guy…getting out of TPA

  18. webster Says:

    And why do some white people hear a black man had bullets in the car, they immediately jump to gang affiliation but if a white man has bullets he is exercising his second ammendment rights? Some of you are really clueless

  19. Mike Johnson Says:

    So A friend of his did this? Then why blame Jackson? However from another perspective….If I was a member of the Buc team? I’d be smokin weed ease my pain!!! and lots of it.

  20. Clodhopper Says:

    Mike Johnson

    Don’t you think just being a Buc fan is reason enough to smoke weed?

  21. AlteredEgo Says:

    Wow Webster…

  22. Bird Says:

    Said driver ran off road and hit a tree

    That must have been some good weed . Puff puff give MF


  23. Dlavid Says:

    Who knows if the alleged friend really exist . Jackson uncooperative with police . Blah blah great character Jackson . Dam this team sucks and the off field antics are piling up . Locker room brawls , Uber driver grabbing with unnamed occupants in the car , players being suspended 22 , team needs real leadership and accountability . Nothing but a s*** show since Gruden got canned , and I am no Gruden fan but facts are facts ….MRSA , Lovie .. good night ! Raheem … what a joke ! Coordinators being fired at start of season or quitting ….come on Glazors get it together . It has been a quagmire since the Old man let the minions take over .

  24. Greg Says:

    No need to stereotype hear people. Remember that white guy, there was an Asian guy, and there was a Spanish guy in the NFL who also got busted with marijuana beating a woman having firearms I just can’t remember any of their names. Can anyone help? Bueller? Bueller

  25. #FireDirk Says:

    Lol @ everyone attacking his character. It’s just a little weed and 2 bullets. Get over yourselves.

  26. webster Says:


    Obviously you did not read the some comments before mine. I also didnt know having bullets made a person trash.

  27. Bundy Says:

    Webster,you know everything in your post is very true! When black people have a gun in their possession,95% of the time their up to no good shooting people,robbery, car jacking,ect.. US white people have gun to protect our self from the people who rob and car jack people.

    The think is Webster you can handle the turth!!

  28. Eric Says:

    Gotta be Mike Williams.

  29. BucEmUp Says:

    Djax isn’t worth his contract. Jameis struggles to connect with him and does better with Godwin. Should have signed Kenny Stills for less than Djax and would have been a better fit. Hopefully this ends up giving the Bucs some kind of out with his contact but doubt they will get that lucky and everyone on here who was screaming for Djax will be the same ones cursing Licht for him not WORKING OUT!!!!!

  30. Defense Rules Says:

    @Joe … “Animal would pull his bong.” Seriously Joe? Jameis haters will now all want to know if there was any groping involved.

  31. Bird Says:

    If gruden is next coach , I would bet good money that Djax will be on the team. (Galloway balled under gruden )

    He wanted to draft him back with bucs. Instead. I think we took dexter Jackson – receiver from western Michigan I think. What a joke that pick was. Don’t know if he even played?

  32. Mike Johnson Says:

    Say Clodhopper..I never inhaled……And I’ll never say what lengths I go thru to take away my pain while watching my Bucs every single Sunday. But lets just say. due to our losses….I’ve had to..increase the dosage!!

  33. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Dexter Jackson was an App St product.

  34. Pickgrin Says:

    “Tampa police questioned Jackson not just because of his trashed pickup but because cops found weed in the car, 6.3 grams to be exact.”

    That amount of cannabis isn’t even a misdemeanor offense in Tampa. Why sensationalize about it?

    The cops were there to find out who left the scene of an accident (a felony) and why (DUI in many cases).

  35. BucTrooper Says:

    Let’s not forget that DJax is one of two Bucs players who took a knee to protest….something.

    He must have been shocked that he wasn’t beaten up like Rodney King.

  36. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    I doubt licht bulb put a clause in djax contract for outside behavior…

    But if he did, cut his ass and get out of the gaurantee

    4 more quarters for the emotionless klueless koetter

    Time for a new beginning

  37. SB Says:

    Lol! was never on board with Djax or Swag. Glad and hate to see that I was right at the same time. #truecancers

  38. NFLNut Says:

    If it was Jameis’ vehicle and not DJax’s … this would be ESPN front page stuff and talked about for a week … stupid.

  39. Rod Munch Says:

    So some dummy friend of D-Jax is in from out of town, gets high and crashes D-Jax’s truck then runs from the cops.

    I’d call BS except D-Jax gave up the name of the guy, so if that’s the case then there isn’t much to the story other than D-Jax has some awful friends.

  40. not there yet Says:

    It’s not like taking a gun to the airport or something. Weed and guns it just sounds like he’s got his plans set for the off-season.

    It’s so easy to poke fun at the bucs these days, he’s never popped hot or had any major of field issues so hopefully it doesn’t start when he’s here. Regardless I think the bad publicity is just too much considering how Chris Godwin sort of makes him Mr irrelevant just hope he’s traded rather than cut

  41. webster Says:

    And bundy is the type of white person im talking about. In his racist mind, 95% of blacks with guns are trying to rob someone while the whites have their guns to protect themselves from blacks. And some of you wonder why these players kneel? Its because of the racist mindset of some people which leads to senseless murders by cops and racial profiling. Tell me what is the purpose of all the whites with mass shootings? People like bundy actually believe that all whites with gun are good and wholesome. In your racist mind, whites do not rob and kill. No, your truth is alternative facts.Smdh. alterego, do you see my point now?

  42. webster Says:


    I think i misinterpreted your comment. If i did, i am sorry. I was under the impression you wrote i “cant” handle the truth. Now that i read it again, you wrote i can handle the truth. Again i am sorry if i misread your post the first time. If you were serious, then my last post stand. That way of thinking of 95% of blacks with guns is dangerous and uncalled for.

  43. darin Says:

    Its not my weed either coppers. Luckily for him its not 1990, so he wont be tying up a jail bed for a couple joints.

  44. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    Joe sure knows how to bring out the best in people purposely inserting controversial subjects into his posts.

  45. USFBUC Says:

    @webster – I am pretty sure Bundy was joking otherwise his post is one of the most racist things I have ever seen.

    I don’t see the story here personally, Jackson gave police the name of the person driving the vehicle. I am sure many people have been out of town before and let somebody borrow their vehicle. I am sure confirming his location at the time of the incident will be easy enough for police.

  46. JabooBuc Says:

    “Well, what had happened was, I was at Bobby’s house”

  47. BoJim Says:

    ‘What’s DJax/Driver-X supposed to do with two hollow points without a gun, throw them at a deer or a hoodlum?)’

    Hey! He could press them into someones brain!!

  48. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I don’t think he’s at fault…but I still want him gone

  49. Locked In Says:

    No way it could have been Jackson driving, and he doesn’t have enough cash to pay a fall guy.

  50. D-Rome Says:

    It’s interesting to me that those who are “Totally Confident” with Bucs leadership want the players that leadership brought in gone. Swaggy, D-Jax, Ward, and Sweezy should all be jettisoned. Grimes is the only FA worth keeping since Licht missed big on Hargreaves.

  51. Ron Artest Says:

    If he was hanging out with Cam Brate and the Ivy school players he wouldn’t be heading for the Pen…Prolly strolling looking to do da drive by

  52. Evolvingbucfan Says:

    hmmm saggy swaggy got high and found a tree he liked it seems…..

    I say fire swaggy and hire the tree as a good run stopper

  53. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    @ Ron Artest

    Tell DJax where you live and find out. Imbecile

  54. Ron Artest Says:

    I’m more gangsta that DeSean… He never attacked fans in the stands like i did wuss

  55. Bundy Says:

    Webster, you got it right,you can’t handle the turth!! I didn’t see one racist word in my comment too you.Stop pulling the race card and stop playing the victim!

  56. Ron Artest Says:

    Webster is sensitive he can’t help it… I guess some people just have soft skin…Call the Wambulanceeee

  57. Clodhopper Says:

    If I claim the weed and bullets, can I keep them?

  58. webster Says:

    I was right. Bundy and ron artest are a bunch of bigots. In their racist minds 95% of blacks with guns rob and kill but yet they overlook the whites who cause harm to innocent children in schools, churches, walmarts, movies etc. These are the posters/people that harm what america is about. Thats why they kneel
