DeSean Jackson Tells TMZ He Hasn’t Talked To Bruce Arians And He Doesn’t Know If The Tampa Situation Can Be Fixed

January 18th, 2019

TMZ hunted down I-hate-Tampa receiver DeSean Jackson at Los Angeles International Airport and talked Bucs with him this week.

Damn, Jackson just exudes disdain for his team.

That doesn’t mean Jackson hates all his teammates and would pass on collecting another $10 million from Team Glazer this season if they are foolish enough to cut the check.

TMZ asked Jackson whether he has talked to new head coach Bucco Bruce Arians, who allegedly has been hoping to re-recruit Jackson, even though he’s already on the roster. Jackson said he hasn’t talked to Arians.

TMZ asked if the situation can be fixed for Jackson in Tampa. Rather than say there is no situation, Jackson says he doesn’t know.

Jackson never says he wants to keep playing for the Buccaneers, but he does say a couple of times that his agent is the key to all the answers.

What a teammate!

    God I hope we can trade him, even for a worthless 7th round pick, to another hopeless franchise in this league….Its what DJax deserves.

  2. Walter Says:

    Bruce better get rid of this bum. Only a weak man would go crawling to this waste of talent to try to recruit him. No team NEEDS D-Jax, he NEEDS that money though. I’d rather pay Humphries significantly less, he can play the slot, have Godwin eat up more reps on the outside with Mike.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Can’t blame BA for putting his best foot forward with Jackson….but I think in the end the talent with our WR corps….the need for cap savings along with Djax’s toxic attitude will rule the day.

  4. Rod Munch Says:

    You don’t talk down trade talent you dopes.

    Someone out there might give up as much as a 3rd, that’s why you stay patient and say you’re ready to have him back no matter what the truth is.

  5. Joeypoppems Says:

    I still say he was worth the investment but it didnt work out.

    Cap space is more important to this team than his skill set

  6. ModHairKen Says:

    We don’t need him. If he has no trade value, it just means no one wants to pick up his contract. WRs are plentiful in this league. Re-sign Humphries. He wants to be here.

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    Josh McCown was worth a 5th round AFTER the Bucs the cut him…

    That’s why you don’t cavalierly say dumb stuff like “cut him now”.

  8. AlteredEgo Says:

    ” He Doesn’t Know If The Tampa Situation Can Be Fixed”…..what he is refering to is Jamyth’s ACCURACY….and it is not just on deep balls

  9. Rod Munch Says:

    Sure, lock up Hump for #4 WR money for the next 6 years and we’re in great shape.

  10. Pete Mitchell Says:

    Really?!?! Cmon man… instead of a website y’all should run a land development business because all day you guys are trying to make mountains out of mole hills.

    What is he supposed to do? Open up to a weirdo chasing him with a cell phone and spill his heart out?

  11. Destinjohnny Says:

    So the ball wont sail 10 feet over his head Rudy Stein style with a new coach?

  12. pepsi Says:

    that wasnt exuding disdain for his team, that was more like disdain for being stalked by paparazzi. we all get it, Djax doesnt have much fun playing for Winston, probably likes him well enough personally but doesnt like being wide open and balls sailing over him. Probably skeptical that Arians could fix that and would rather play the couple remaining high level years he has with someone that can take advantage of him more. Licht needs to try and get a 5th or 6th for him at least or let him go. Arians by now is probably seeing the film and getting the story

  13. AlteredEgo Says:

    Excellent post pepsi !

  14. Whatinthebuchappend Says:

    Screw you jerkoff Jackson ! We don’t want you here ! Your an over hyped one trick pony that alligator arms balls that you don’t want to fight for ! Most of the time , I didn’t even realize that you were not in games this year..Joey Galloway alligator armed a few in his day but best believe he did more for the bucs than you ever could ! Now gtfoh and go be a cancer on another team ya bum ! Bruce do not try and keep him ! He may look like a shiny new toy from afar but if he stuck it out with your convincing , pretty soon you’ll realize it’s not a shiny new toy , someone just polished a turd !

  15. TexBuc Says:

    Trade him to Miami their QB situation is in flux. Let him play for team without a QB…lol

  16. Old School Athlete Says:

    It’s a new day in Tampa Bay. Whoever wants in, get in. Whoever wants out, get out. If Diva DJax and Grumpy Grimes don’t want to be here, flights depart daily. I respect their abilities, but not their lack of heart and pride. We finally have a capable leadership team. We finally have a head coach who’s not looking to pad his retirement or position himself for his next job. I can only speak for myself, but I’m all in. My only regret is that I can’t suit up for these guys. GO BUCS!

  17. Waterboy Says:

    I agree with him, they just need to move on from him. One thing I thought about yesterday, when it comes to Adam Humphries we heard BA say he wants to keep him but with MeJax we heard it from Ian Rapoport not BA.

  18. Boogie Nightz Says:

    Good riddance malcontent. We do not want you here anyways!

  19. AlteredEgo Says:

    I am beginning to think the only reason Licht didn’t trade my DJax is that he didn’t want to be embarrassed watching him in the postseason TEARING it UP…with a QB that can hit him in stride and with the deep ball….his trade value was never higher than at the trade deadline to a team with a real shot at the Super Bowl….another screw up on Jason’s resume….

  20. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    He doesn’t want to play with America’s Divider. And trust me, DJax knows better than ANY of us commenting on this site. Including Joe.

  21. Jean Lafitte Says:

    If it’s Joe’s intent to totally alienate DJax from the Buc fanbase it’s apparently working. The sheep are flocking in droves now. Social media is angry. Keep stirring the pot TMZ, I mean JBF. We simply love all the swirling controversy. It’s our human nature to find someone to hate.

  22. El_Buc941 Says:

    As much as we tampa fans are starting to dislike Desean I think coach Arians can find a real good use for him.Punt AND kick returner,hell I would even try him out for RB!

  23. The Buc Realist Says:

    Its a shame that the bucs proclaimed starter cannot throw the deep ball!!!!!! The back up last year showed just how valuable that Djax is to an explosive offense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will show answers to the sheep that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Buc4evr Says:

    Dump him and use the money for Hump. Geez, I get that Winston can’t throw the deep ball well, but $10 million is still $10 million, what a tool.

  25. BeeBucs Says:

    Let him WALK…. Why do we keep talking about him. C’mon JOE!!! Bury all Djax readings. HE GIVES NO EFFORT!!! HE DOESNT CARE IF THE TEAM WINS OR LOSES.

  26. Brandon Says:

    He makes a ton so his trade value would be close to Osweileresque, a we pay you to take this contract, but if we could swap 7th rounders and send his sorry malcontent self to Buffalo or…. Pottsville… Cleveland would be too kind. I’d be all on board.

  27. Waterboy Says:

    I’ve always thought MeJax was overrated even before coming to Tampa. He’s a little fast guy and that’s it. There are other little fast guys available that are more committed to the team than their personal stats.

  28. Waterboy Says:

    If MeJax is irreplaceable why did Philly and Washington let him walk?

  29. Maze Says:

    I hope he tears his ACL

  30. Ray Rice Says:

    Hope you blow out your knee Jackie.

  31. Todd Says:

    You can’t fix “heart”. This dousche is a cancer. I can’t even stand seeing his ugly, arrogant ass wishing these articles. I’m now allergic. Primadona bitch.

  32. Todd Says:


  33. TOM Says:

    First off Hump needs to be signed. Like right now. Like I said before I have a strong feeling there is going to be a big turnover in players. Some players that I think will be gone are D. Smith, Bennoch, Dotson, McCoy, DJax, Gholston, Curry, Bond, Taylor, Grimes, Hargreaves, R Smith, Conte, Rodgers & possibly Alexander, RoJo, Fitzpatrick & Griffin.

  34. Dapostman Says:

    Since WR is probably the easiest NFL position to play now a days guys like MeSean are replaceable. Bring in a younger version like John Brown and boot the malcontent. If you can’t find a trade partner cut, cut and cut some more. Chemistry is paramount in a winning culture.

  35. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Tom are you saying you think all of those players will be gone or just a couple of them?

  36. JimmyJack Says:

    Actually Winston can throw the deep ball. Go check out his numbers on deep post routes.

    Deep sideline routes is a different story.

    His limitations on sideline throws we’re exploited because most of deep looks were on sideline routes.

    If they throw more deep posts this year and it don’t work I’ll gladly eat my words. Til then the stats say Winston very much can throw deep balls accurately.

  37. lokog Says:

    trade this wanksta he plays with no heart anywayz another player who plays scared

  38. jerseybuc Says:

    See ya!

  39. Pierce Says:

    Without a doubt, the worst move by Licht. He should’ve done more research. And honestly, do you blame D Jax for the disdain? That Tampa Times article may have completely destroyed his value (which in the end, was D Jax doing anyways). I hope Licht has learned.

  40. Belligerentbuc Says:

    If we have to lose with Jackson, I wish at least it was V Jax, the ultimate pro!

    I wish we could have kept a slow V Jax over a cancerous speedster

  41. tbbucs3 Says:

    Ive said it before and ill say it again……the Bucs dont need any more “cool” guys.

  42. tbbucs3 Says:

    A guy like Peyton Barber is a thousand times cooler than Desean Jackson

  43. Alanbucsfan Says:

    So I guess this never happened and can’t happen again with new coaches…

  44. Season Is Over Says:

    What an organization that would hold onto someone like this out of pure greed!

  45. RustyRhinos Says:

    Can we please just cut this guy already. He does not want to be here as he has stated, so good luck in the future. By felicia!

  46. alanpewterking Says:

    @alanbucsfan. Exactly. I’m not buying this whole idea that Jameis can’t throw the deep ball. Does anyone stop and ask why he throws them to every receiver on the team except Desean? Maybe the the problem is more of Desean not fighting for passes and catching them or running out of bounds if it’s not perfectly thrown. Nobody talks about this. Hmm.

  47. alanpewterking Says:

    I don’t have anything personal against Desean Jackson but has anyone asked Why Jameis throws deep passes to every receiver on the team except Desean.Maybe the problem is more of Desean not fighting for passes or giving up his body. Every pass isn’t a perfect spiral or deep pass. Just saying

  48. ben Says:

    Fitz had no problem connecting with Djax in stride …

  49. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    No Desean Jackson = No Super Bowl

  50. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    Cut her and resign Hump.

  51. BucHead5588 Says:

    Rod Munch is exactly right but seriously dosnt everyone know this, I guess not LOL GoBucs
