DeSean Jackson Sells His Tampa House

December 21st, 2018

“Jason, you should have taken that third-round pick.”

DeSean Jackson didn’t deny asking for a trade from the Bucs two months ago, but he did say how much he loves Tampa and desires to end his career here.

The mixed signals continued this week when Jackson accepted an offer to sell his Tampa mansion.

Jackson’s crib, seen prominently on Hard Knocks last summer, went up for sale last week and received a quick offer. The Coldwell Banker listing linked here lays out the details.

Hard Knocks fans will recognize the pool in the listing photos. Not seen on TV was the putting green and the full basketball court alongside it.

Kudos to Jackson for the $1.1 million asking price. He paid $875,000 for the Old Memorial area property 19 months ago.

Sure, there’s a .5 percent chance Jackson is simply planning to relocate into Dirk Koetter’s South Tampa home, but Joe’s not going wager on that. Perhaps Jackson wants to live closer to One Buc Palace so he can more easily skip  attend spring practices?

It’s rather obvious Jackson can’t wait to get out of town no matter who the coach or quarterback is.

Joe will leave you with Jackson’s words from his Halloween podcast.

“I love it here in Tampa,” Jackson said. “You know, I’m raising my family. My family loves it down here. I love the weather, love the beaches. There’s a lot to do, but it’s still a low key quiet place, as well, too. The city’s embracing me, man. And I appreciate the fan support and all the love. Hopefully, man, I can end my career here. Retire as a Buc, man, that’s what I look forward to. And hopefully bringing a Super Bowl to Tampa Bay.”

    Sounds to me like he is getting contract extension …and buying a penthouse @ One St. Petersburg

    Smart man…. Rates are rising and the economy is slowing. Won’t be as bad as 08 but the housing market has peaked.

  3. Buc believer Says:

    Buc Jackson!!! I don’t give a ship about that selfish son a witch!

  4. AlteredEgo Says:

    Did DJax say who he is bringing in as the new GM and QB ?

  5. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I bet Brees or Ryan would love to get DJax.

  6. BeeBucs Says:

    None of this matters. He is under contract with us until WE decide we don’t want him. He can buy a house in Utah… it doesn’t matter!

  7. Duke Silver Says:

    Good for him. He knows the truth about JW. If JW puts a bid in on D-Jax’s house, I bet he underbids or is off the mark.

  8. DB55 Says:

    Does that come with the qp of Mary Jane or nah? Asking for myself.

  9. Bird Says:

    Who wouldn’t love Jackson.

    He needs to go to team with QB who can throw long ball
    So many missed tds here

  11. BurgDweller Says:

    Surprised he even purchased a house in Tampa. Would have been smarter to rent. Not like he was going to retire as a Buc.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The ex-Buc real estate market is good…..

  13. Jean Lafitte Says:

    …and in todays episode of “As The Stomach Churns”, DJax sold his house for a profit.

  14. miken Says:

    Hey Djax, if you close before you owned the house for 24 months, you will pay tax on the profit. Keep it another 5 months, and its tax free

  15. Joe Blahak Says:

    His attitude and alligator arms are not worth all that his speed does to defensive coverage. Just another cancer growing on the Bucs internal organs.

  16. ben Says:

    If the bucs qb cant help your career because of not being accurate on hitting receiver in stride or connecting with the long ball …time to move on so dont be mad at DJax.

  17. Not there yet Says:

    Deuces because you can find speedy receivers in the draft. I’m just starting to wonder if next to Jackson is oj Howard the next fastest because everyone seems slow

  18. StoutGospel Says:

    Good riddance here to DJax, with his finicky hamstrings always an issue…

    But as @Altered said above…. you put DJax on the Packers, and sign Lev’ Bell to a 5 year (80%) fully guaranteed deal come March–who would take a little less to play with ARod, then court Lincoln Riley as HC away from Oklahoma….and DJax would be instantly agreeable with Aaron dropping those bombs! Packers would be fierce!

    JOHN Harbaugh for Bucs resurgence!

  21. CC Head Says:

    MeSean is not a team player. Should have traded him before deadline. Dude won’t return punts, won’t play in the slot, complains when his backup QB gets benched. Ef him.

  22. Hodad Says:

    Well now he doesn’t have to compete with Licht, and Koetter when their homes it the market. Just another failed experiment signing by Licht. For those of you who are blaming J.W., and the Buc organization for Jax wanting out ask yourself what happened in Jackson’s other NFL stops? Philly, and Washington couldn’t get rid of him fast enough, they don’t need his deep speed? They didn’t need his selfish ways, and the locker room cancer that he is. Licht ignored the warning signs, and will pay for what is just another blunder on his tenure.

  23. 813bucboi Says:

    i hope dirk put his house on the market…..

    #REALISTKNOWSNOTHING!!!…#ADIOSDIRK!!!!….GO BUCS!!!!

  24. Destinjohnny Says:

    He has a qb who can’t get him the ball

  25. Buccernutter Says:

    Honestly, it sucks to see djax fail. I really do feel for him as it is evident now that he may have wasted 2 years of his career putting faith into Jameis. I remember seeing them on hard knocks interacting where he gave jw love and was excited to play but jealous Evans got all the targets. It was a foreshadowing of what was to come

    The fact is he’s definitely one of the best deep threats in history. There were so many missed opportunities here on bombs and it’s sad to think what cojkd have been.

    However, it became clear Hof numbers and stats were his priority. If Jameis was better at the deep ball something special could have been. But djax doesn’t realize he is a one trick pony who is needs to be utilized when the opportunity presents itself not to be game planned for. Fitz gave him video game numbers and he falsly believed they were sustainable. He’s not far off from his career average if he stayed healthy.

    Dude is definitely a diva. Very dissapointed how he handled this situation. I really hope he goes to another team and has mediocre numbers so that he can learn he’s not going to ever be a primary weapon. He deserves his number sure but he’s not a good teammate and he needs to fall back.

    Wish things had worked out but I’m extremely annoyed Jason didn’t trade him. Jason has dropped the ball in a lot of ways this way.

    When I watched the draft I called for Derwin, guice, dontee Jackson, and Davis in that order. How can I draft better than him?

  26. Buccernutter Says:

    But Jameis is our guy. He’s the priority. I sincerely believe this offense will be a lot better with a stronger run game and djax gone.

  27. Dooshlarue Says:

    @DB55

    You made me laugh. That was pretty funny……
    But hey WTFDIK?!

  28. LakeLand Says:

    The Tampa Bay area real estate market will be flooded in a few weeks

    Flooded with new listings, it will be a buyer market

    The new regime and the new players

    Can get these mansions at below market prices

  29. EvolvingBucsfan Says:

    Man how you guys take information and run with it…lol.

    He’s buying a new house and selling his current. Just a little inside information for ya.

    Calm down people.

  30. EvolvingBucsfan Says:

    Still doesn’t prove he is leaving or staying, lots of current and former player have houses in Tampa.

    Just saying

  31. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    DeSean William Jackson,

    Sorry Djax, our QB is a scrub that can’t complete a deep pass to you. Please stay for the Glazer cash, cuz that’s the only good thing about playing for the Bucs.

    But if you actually like winning games and competing for a Super Bowl, i’ll understand why you don’t like playing here and leave.

    Again my apologies for this $h##tty team.

    -Bucs Fan #7423

  32. Bucsfanman Says:

    People have obviously forgotten our lack of speed without DJax. Look at our offense since his injury, it speaks for itself.
    It cracks me up to see so many fans want to run a good player out of town because he’s a “diva”. Would he have been such a “diva” had the connection been there from Jameis? I’m guessing not.
    I guarantee we’ll miss him, unless they find another speedster.

  33. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    OF ALL THE QUARTERBACKS THAT DESEAN JACKSON HAS PLAYED FOR, JAMIES WINSTON IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN’T COMPLETE A DEEP PASS TO HIM!!

    WTF!!!!!!!

    Jamies can’t even do what easy for every other quarterback to do! God this is embarrassing to root for him

  34. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Even backup quarterbacks can complete deep passes to Desean Jackson and Jamies can’t?????

    And this kid wants $25 mil a year?!?!!

    gtfoh

  35. El_Buc941 Says:

    Great!now with that 10mil owed him we can go and get Leveon Bell for the $14mil he wants!

  36. LakeLand Says:

    Bucfanman

    I said this before they signed DJax

    The Bucs will be wasting their money on DJax
    He’s not a good fit with Jameis Winston as QB
    Jameis has never been a accurate deep ball passer
    The $11 million a season they spending on DJax
    Could be better spent on players at other positions

  37. LakeLand Says:

    **Jameis has never been an accurate deep ball passer**

    And Dork Koetter vertical offense isn’t for him
    He’s a dunk and dine QB
    75% of his passes should go to the RB,TE and Slot WR

  38. Waterboy Says:

    Smart move! Good return on his investment.

  39. Bucsfanman Says:

    LakeLand- It’s truly a shame. Even the threat of him deep had defenses wary, at least until teams figured out that there was no chemistry with him and Jameis.
    Will this lack of chemistry continue with another speedy receiver? I don’t know.
    The Bucs have issues!

  40. Buccernutter Says:

    It cracks me up when fans excuse his DIVA mentality because Jameis couldn’t hook up with him.

    Nobody else is complaining about there connection with Jameis, you know why? Cuz they have one.

    We were #1 offense in the league with a record of a decent record when he wanted to be traded. It’s okay though cuz Jameis was going to return, right?

    Fitz connected with him better than any QB had in history in 2 games but that went away didn’t it? Hmmm must be Jameis’s fault.

    You crack me up bro.

  41. Buccernutter Says:

    Deep threat definitely helps in koetters vertical offense. You’re right. Which is now seeming to be extremely turnover prone with these 2 quarterbacks. At one pt 4 of 6 targets to djax from both Jameis and Fitz were interceptions. Why is it that Fitz was nearly perfect with him for weeks and then it just dissapeared? Yet when Jameis comes back and faulters it’s all his fault? Hmmm.

    Rodgers Dirk and djax would be incredibe together. Djax does have it still but he needs to know his ceiling is limited. He’s not a #1.

    What we need is to retain Jameis, get some maulers on the ol, a true workhorse RB and a smart DC. A more conservative offense will work wonders.

    I believe djax Winston and koetter are all good to great but the marriage just didn’t work.

    We will all benefit from this break up.

  42. DB55 Says:

    For whatever it worth in 2013 dirks second yr as OC in ATL Matt Ryan had his highest interceptions in his career (17). Therefore it could be argued that Koetter offense is Int prone. Ryan also had some of his lowest QBs ratings under Koetter too and that’s with 2-3 HOFers on the offense.

  43. Cobraboy Says:

    I suspect Jackson’s financial advisors are suggesting he bail. The Tampa real estate market is poised to tank in the coming months.

    Too bad America’s Turnover Machine is so inefficient at the long ball. DeSean Jackson kept the DB coverage loose because of his extreme every-down threat. Without Jackson in the lineup, DB manhandle the Bucs receivers at the line, knowing none are anywhere near the deep threat that Jackson represented.

  44. Bucsfanman Says:

    Nutter- Nobody’s making excuses. My point was that, as fans, we would’ve been cheering instead of excoriating. The “diva-ness”, and for that matter just about everything, is smoothed over by winning. Winning cures all!
    Why does everybody go to the extremes?! We all watched the games, we all saw the lack of connection, we all saw the inevitable loafing on DJax part. We all saw it, it’s not some made up criticism.
    We also saw the misuse of a valuable weapon.
    He’s a “diva” NOW because we didn’t get his best. We’d be singing a different tune if he was running through the endzone now wouldn’t we?! Which is my point.

    The feeling’s mutual! 🙂

  45. EvolvingBucsfan Says:

    I do know for a fact his new house he is buying is in Tampa.

    Still doesn’t mean he is staying or leaving…. but definitely not bailing like you guys think.

  46. Buccernutter Says:

    I get it and I agree I just think his behavior was inexcusable. Very unclassy. He deserves to win but he should have just been quiet.

    I really wanted that connection. So badly. But Jameis > djax.

    Lakeland!!!!! I have not seen you here in a while! Congratulations on your naughts. It’s strange that JW has no problem connecting with Mike

  49. Bucsfanman Says:

    Nutter- He’s been like that his entire career. Fans and teams tolerated it when he produced, for the most part.
    I worry that it’s the speedy WRs that pose a problem for Jameis. DJax is the 1st legit speedster we’ve had since he’s been here. We will have to address this again if DJax hits the road. We need speed.

  50. ATLBuc Says:

    DJ could have amassed crazy yac here catching slants but he doesn’t have the heart for those inside routes

    “It’s strange that JW has no problem connecting with Mike”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Very true… and has never had a problem connecting with Mike.

  53. Buccernutter Says:

    Ya man. He’s just better with those trees like Evans and Benjamin.

    Does anybody know if a third was offered for him and if so, what the f*** is Jason thinking?

  54. Bucsfanman Says:

    ATLBuc- True, but Jackson is a “tad” faster than Mike, and Mike has a huge catch radius.

  55. LakeLand Says:

    ATLBuc,

    I’ve been chillin homie

    But these are Mike Evans catch ratios with Jameis

    2015- 50%
    2016- 55.5
    2017 -52.2

    His catch ratio is 61.7, but a lot of those catches came with Fitz

  56. LakeLand Says:

    Jameis Winston best catch ratios are with his RB, TE, Slot WR

    These are Hump catch ratio

    2015-67.5
    2016-66.3
    2017-73.5
    2018-70.1

    Cam Brate catch ratios

    2015-76.7
    2016-70.4
    2017-62.3
    2018-61.9

    OJ Howard catch ratios

    2017-66.7
    2018-70.8

  57. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ Good observations & stats. Of course that would be true of most QB’s.

  58. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Sort of why Carson Wentz doesn’t want to throw to anybody but his TE, lol.

  59. LakeLand Says:

    Tampa Bay Demon

    It make sense to call plays that play to the QB strengths

  60. Darin Says:

    I’d want out too if i were him. And anyone notice has the offense has blown since he hasnt been stretching the field the last 3 weeks? Coincidence? No.

  61. JIMMY T Says:

    Hey BIRD
    SO the Bomb is a high percentage play huh? Jameis hit him in stride against bengals for a TD, DJAX dropped a perfect TD PASS in his hands or should I say he used one hand to try to catch it against the Browns. Right on the money & he decides to catch it w one arm. KOETTER NEVER mentions the drops only the misses! Yeah I guess Jameis has a problem when he hits EVANS WHILE SCRAMBLING TO HIS LEFT and lays it perfectly in his hands for 64 yards and at least 55 yards in the air. Against 49ers he hit Godwin in stride for close to 50 and against Saints he hit Evans for 49 down the sideline on first drive of the game.

  62. miken Says:

    You might not like djax but you now don’t have anyone to strech the field and as you can see the last few games a lot more coverage rolling to other WRs

  63. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ You are definitely right, miken. We need him back to help create some more room for everyone.

  64. Bucsfanman Says:

    “Speed kills” isn’t a saying for nothing, if you know what I mean. Look at our offense pre-Jackson and now.

  65. LakeLand Says:

    The Bucs didn’t have a WR to stretch the field in 2016

    They went 9-7

    Jameis Winston completed 61% of his passes

    And the defense was a lot better

  66. LakeLand Says:

    Jameis still passed for 4100 Yards

    Russell Shepard
    Josh Huff
    Freddie Martino
    Cecil Shorts
    Vincent Jackson ( 5 games)

    Those were the WR opposite ME and Hump

  67. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Those are definitely great points, LakeLand.

  68. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The problems between Winston and Jackson were always on the part of Jackson. He just did not commit to being his best for Winston for some reason.

    Winston, however, did give him lots of opportunities, at the expense of other players on the team.

    I think maybe Jackson was informed he’s going to be traded at the end of the season. Or released. Or…he has some inside info on Jim Harbaugh and knows Jim won’t put up with his junk, so he wants out of dodge.

  69. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    miken Says
    “You might not like djax but you now don’t have anyone to strech the field…”

    UNTRUE.

    You do not need speed to stretch the field. Before Jackson came along, Jameis was completing a lot of deep passes to Mike Evans. After Jackson came, he was completing them more to Evans, Godwin and OJ…even though Jackson had the ball thrown to him much more.

    Mike Evans caught 6 passes 40+ and 24 passes 20+ yards deep this year and he got 58 first downs so far. He has 1,328 yards on the year too. Mike is averaging 17.9 yards per catch and 94.9 yards per game.

    Desean Jackson this year: 30 First downs, 5 passes 40+ and 12 passes 20+ yards deep, for a total so far of 750 yards. Desean is averaging 18.8 per catch and 68.2 yards per game.

    There is only a difference of 3 games played between the two.

    For those keeping track:

    Mike gets 4.1 first downs per game.
    Desean gets 2.8 first downs per game.

    And yet people swear by Jackson? Simply put, he has not performed as advertised since he got here, and it is not Winston’s fault. Mike Evans has better stats, and caught the ball deep more times than Jackson. Winston has no trouble connecting with anyone else.

    Winston connected with Godwin 6 times for 20+ yards this year…who also got more first downs at 42.

    OJ Howard? He had 11 catches for 20+ yards and 28 first downs.

    Desean Jackson never came close to any of them.

  70. Robert Says:

    I thought it would have been bigger

  71. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Heck, look at Humphries…he had 11 catches for 20+ yards…and 38 first downs. Even he has performed better than Jackson, and Humphries is one of the top yards after catch guys…and he does not have the speed of Jackson…so he is proof speed does not matter.

  72. Cgmaster27 Says:

    By mesean ,you can go half ass routes elsewhere. And for this saying fitz didnt have a problem hitting him, you’re living off the first two games just stop. The ONLY long pass mesean has caught since then was from Jameis in the bears game. Hes not lost a top but hes useless for anything outise of the occasional long bomb. Jameis has no problems hitting anyone else long and you all just gloss over it. And for those saying g the offense isnt as good as it was. I’d say it has WAY more to do with OJs injru8than jacksons. That’s a guy that will actually catch a pass deep over the middle.

  73. D1QB Says:

    DB55,

    Cherry picking one stat then making wild assumptions about a single item is a habit I guess.

    The facts are during Dirks 3 seasons with Atlanta, Matt Ryan had improved and played better than He had.

    Mularkey..4yrs. 3559yrs/avg season, 60% completion %, 24TD/12INT season avg, 88QB rating.

    Koetter, 3yrs. 4643yds/avg season, 67% completion %, 29TD/15INT , 84.2 QB rating.

    Add 2 pro bowl apperences and the franchise record setting 4719yds w 32 TD in 2012 and it’s obvious that you are full of monkey shiz..

  74. D1QB Says:

    Correction……94.2 QB rating..

  75. MHBuc25 Says:

    How many WR’s wanted to leave Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Dan Marino, or Tom Brady? Hell, how many WR’s wanted to leave Alex Smith? Oh man.

  76. Bobby M. Says:

    Jackson has one year left on his contract…South Tampa RE market is hot. Makes sense to cash out now, he can rent for a year…then move on.

  77. DalvinCookRules Says:

    I’ve been studying Winston forever now, grading his strengths & weaknesses. I think if I just distilled everything down, I would be left with one fatal flaw: he does not get rid of the ball quickly enough.

    I’m going to coin a phrase “window of recognition” and it is based on time, not space:

    You have just a split second to locate the receiver who is not necessarily open but ABOUT TO BECOME open, and you throw him MORE OPEN than he was at the instant you realized it–and be very accurate when you make the throw. I see Tom Brady has this ability in spades, and it became clear to me that even Fitz might have more of this ability than JW.

    Now, Fitz is weaker than JW in many other areas, which masks the fact that his “window of recognition” skill is superior. That fact in and of itself may explain why Fitz has had some bursts of tremendous success with the Bucs receiving corps.
