Buccaneers Sign Vincent Jackson To Five-Year Deal

March 13, 2012 Buccaneers, Chargers

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Tampa Bay Buccneers have signed former Chargers WR Vincent Jackson to a five-year deal.

Schefter mentions that the deal is a 5 year contract worth $55.55 million and includes $26 million guarantees. Schefter adds that it’s a heavily front-loaded contract that will pay him $36 million in 1st three year and remaining $26 million in the final two.

This was reported to be in the works earlier in the day but this is a big move for a team that has stayed away from spending a ton of money in the free agent market.
