Buccaneers Expected To Sign WR DeSean Jackson

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buccaneers are expected to sign WR DeSean Jackson, barring a breakdown in negotiations.

The Buccaneers were clearly the team to watch for Jackson, but recent reports said that the Redskins were making an attempt to re-sign him.

It will be interesting to see how close Jackson comes to making $12 million per year in his next contract, as this has been tossed out as his asking price.

Jackson, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2008. He spent six years with the Eagles before signing a three-year, $24 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in 2014.

In 2016, Jackson appeared in 14 games for the Redskins and caught 56 passes for 1005 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 36 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 100 – 2017 Free Agents list.
