Jackson lands with the Bucs in a huge deal that will guarantee him $26 million. V-Jax will be matched up with the big arm of Josh Freeman. Jackson was inconsistent is San Diego and will be in Tampa as well. This does bode well for the the fantasy value of Josh Freeman and Mike Williams. V-Jax will be a solid WR2, but don’t reach for him as a top 12 guy.
Pierre turned down a huge deal from the Colts a few weeks back and I thought he was nuts. Thing is, this guy must have the best agent in the universe to get him the mega deal he got with the Redskins today. Sorry, the dude can run fast, but WRs need to have the ability to catch and stuff. His route running is worse than my 9 year olds and I would love to grab a beer with Peyton to confirm how big a f*ck up this signing was. Garcon is NOT a #1 WR and will be a WR3 at best in fantasy, but even when he has been a WR3 over the past few...

Free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson has signed a five-year, $55.55 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jackson was one of the top wideouts available in free agency once San Diego decided not to give him the franchise tag. It didn't take him long to hook up with Tampa Bay and quarterback Josh Freeman, in whose honor Jackson got all those 5s in the deal; Freeman...
This ship sailed with Tampa Bay signing Vincent Jackson and the Redskins signing Pierre Garcon, obviously, but here’s video from Sunday of SOJA (Soldiers of Jah Army, bumbaclot) taking time out from their San Diego show to try and persuade V-Jax to come play for their hometown Redskins. RG3 references abound, as do some pretty amazing dreadlocks.
Programming Note: I’m saying...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers shelled out $56 million for a 5 year contract with $26 million of it is guaranteed for wide-receiver Vincent Jackson. HUGE payday for the 29 year old wideout and thankfully for Washington Redskins fans, it was not their favorite team that shelled out that kind of money to just one player.
Most people thought it was surprising that the Washington Redskins...
It’s no secret that the Chicago Bears have a huge need at Wide Receiver. I was one of the first to report the news that Vincent Jackson was a favorite target of the Bears. It’s also not a secret that the Bears, very publicly, are testing the waters with potential first round prospect Stephen Hill. [...]
There are many teams that are going to go after Vincent Jackson and Marques Colston. Those teams are the Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals. Each of those teams have reported interest in Vincent Jackson and each are looking for an established number-one wide receiver.
Each of those teams need to look long...
Okay, Shawne, maybe Buffalo should keep you.
Yesterday, Bills oft-injured linebacker (and future 4-3 defensive end) Shawne Merriman showed he may have some worth to the success of Buffalo, whether or not he plays another down on the field. Though he's spent two years with the Bills, Merriman has played in exactly five games in the red and blue, all of them in 2011. He's...
Many in the media, along with the entire fan base has come down like a ton of bricks it seems over the years on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for not taking advantage of immense available cap space on the open market.
Since 2003, the Buccaneers have either finished 3rd or been the bottom-dwellers of the NFC South seven times combined.
The team has approximately a whopping $42.7 million...
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Regret Vincent Jackson signing - I know that fans are going to be excited about this signing, but I think this move will not be the move that saves the Buccaneers offense. They signed Jackson to a five-year $55,555,555 contract with $26 million guaranteed. Jackson had played the seven previous seasons for the San Diego Chargers.
Wide receiver Vincent Jackson has agreed to a five-year deal with the Buccaneers worth $55M.
Jackson should remain a No. 1 caliber fantasy receiver, while the stock of young gun Josh Freeman is bound to go back up following a disappointing 2011 campaign.
NFL free agency started with a flurry yesterday as Brandon Marshall was traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Chicago Bears for two 3rd round draft picks right at 4pm. Adding Marshall to the list of WR’s making moves this offseason helps make WR’s the most coveted free agents this year. The #1 WR on the free agent list was Vincent Jackson and he found a new home with the Tampa...
After much speculation on what seemed to be a sure deal with the Bills, free agent wide receiver Robert Meachem has agreed to a contract with the San Diego Chargers. The news was announced from the Chargers twitter account. The deal is over 4 years and worth a reported $25.9 million with $14 million guaranteed. Meachem will replace Vincent Jackson, who was acquired by the Tampa...
So the football laundry did the deal with WR DeSean Jackson today, with a thoroughly sensible 5 year deal for $51 million that doesn't tie the club down too badly in event of injury or ineffectiveness, and gets him in under the gun. You can't argue that he's overpaid, given the insane cash thrown at Calvin Johnson, the better money thrown at Vincent Jackson, and the comparable...
The NFL free agency period opens this afternoon at 4pm EST, but don’t expect the San Diego Chargers to be major players, chasing big name stars which become available today. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers are more likely to try to lock up some of their own players and perhaps sign some of the second or third tier free agents which will become...

Jeff Duncan, New Orleans Saints beat columnist for The Times-Picayune is reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free agent receiver Vincent Jackson. Recent reports have linked the two sides together and now it is official. The Bucs have about $43 million in salary-cap space this off-season and they said that they wanted to make a splash. They did just that by signing...
