Vincent Jackson lining up at slot for Buccaneers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Buccaneers wide reciever Vincent Jackson is working at a variety of positions in OTAs this offseason. 

New offensive coordinator Dirk Koettner is installing Jackson's third offensive scheme in as many years, and Jackson likes what he's seen.  

Dirk is having some fun moving me around and playing me in multiple places, and it’s been fun for me, too,’’ Jackson said, per TBO.com. “It’s fun to play inside (in the slot) and outside, to be able stretch the field and cross the field. That’s what’s good about this system. We’re going to put the ball all over the place. The backs, the tight ends, everybody’s going to be involved and that should make it fun for all of us."


Report: Vincent Jackson to return to Buccaneers at full salary


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) WR Vincent Jackson will return to the Buccaneers next season, at full salary, according to a report by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times

Jackson had been considered a target for a lower salary, to help improve the Bucs' salary cap situation. He'd previously said that he wanted to stay with the team but didn't want a pay cut. 

Jackson will be paid $9.777 million in 2015, with a cap hit of $12 million. 


Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson not accepting pay cut for 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is likely to remain with Tampa Bay this offseason, but he is not willing to accept a pay cut, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Jackson, who was shopped by the team before the trade deadline, is set to make $10 million in base salary and has a $12.2 million cap hit. He totaled 70 catches for 1,002 yards and two touchdowns in 2014.


Report: Buccaneers GM to meet with Vincent Jackson's agent


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht is scheduled to meet with the agent for wide receiver Vincent Jackson in Indianapolis, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Licht is expected to discussion a potential restructure of Jackson's contract, which is set to pay the receiver a little less than $9.78 million in each of 2015 and 2016 but carries a cap number of a little more than $12.2 million in each season.

The Buccaneers would gain about $7.4 million in cap space by releasing Jackson, who caught 70 passes for 1,002 yards with two touchdowns in 2014. However, Licht said that the receiver would "absolutely" be on the team in 2015, NFL.com reports.

He's under contract through 2016.


Buccaneers WR tandem sets records on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Buccaneers wide receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson both made their marks Sunday in a loss to New Orleans. With their first receptions, they became the first tandem in franchise history to exceed 1,000 yards through the air.

Evans caught his 12th touchdown pass, which also set a team record. He finished with five catches for 54 yards.


Buccaneers WR Jackson (groin) done for the day


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) As expected, Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson has been ruled out for the remainder of the Sunday game against New Orleans with a groin injury. He had originally been deemed doubtful.

Buccaneers WR Jackson (groin) doubtful to return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is doubtful to return to the Sunday game against New Orleans after sustaining a groin injury.

He was in long enough to catch an 11-yard pass that put him over 1,000 on the year. He has exceeded that number in four consecutive seasons.


Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson racks up 60 yards receiving in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had three catches for 60 yards in Tampa Bay's 20-3 loss to Green Bay. 

Jackson is now just nine yards short of his sixth 1,000-yard receiving season of his career. 

Jackson will get his chance in Week 17 against the Saints to surpass that mark. 


Bucs' Jackson racking up the yards, but scoreless streak at 10 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a team-high 70 receiving yards on six catches during a 19-17 loss Week 15 at Carolina. He was targeted 10 times and had a long reception of 18 yards.

Jackson hasn't had a receiving touchdown in 10 games. However, he has 370 receiving yards in the last four games.

The Bucs are back in action Week 16 against the Packers.


Mike Evans leaving room for Vincent Jackson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) Since breaking out with seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns Week 9 at Cleveland, Buccaneers rookie Mike Evans has emerged as one of the most productive wide receivers in the league. But he hasn't completely overshadowed one-time star Vincent Jackson, particularly not in recent weeks.

True, Evans had two touchdown grabs Week 14 at Detroit and has three over the last three weeks to Jackson's zero, but he's also gone for less than 50 yards in each of those games, giving him a total of 141 during that stretch. Jackson had 159 in Week 14 alone.

That's not meant to worry you about Evans. He's gotten no fewer than nine targets in any of those three games and had 11, equaling a season high, in Week 14. His role hasn't changed, and that role provided him with some big numbers during that middle stretch of the season. But with two 100-yard games in his last three and a season-high 17 targets in Week 14, Jackson isn't just an afterthought.

Evans has established himself as a must-start player, so don't even mess with him. Jackson isn't nearly as reliable and hasn't been a great source of touchdowns this season, but with an average of 84.0 yards in his last six games, he's still worth using as a flex option more weeks than not.


Vincent Jackson posts season-high 159 yards in loss to Lions


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had 10 catches for 159 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. It was Jackson's highest stat line of the season in both catches and yards. 

Jackson still only has two touchdowns on the season. 

Jackson and the Bucs will take on the Panthers in Week 15. 


Buccaneers WR Jackson held to two catches in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Buccaneers premier wide receiver Vincent Jackson did little to help the cause Sunday against the Bengals. He caught just two passes for 24 yards.

Jackson, who was coming off a 117-yard effort in Week 12, will try to rebound when Tampa Bay plays at Detroit next Sunday.


Vincent Jackson leads the way for Bucs Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson led the way for the club Week 12.

Jackson led the team in receiving, picking up 117 yards. He was a constant big play threat, catching just five passes. Jackson's shortest reception of the day went for 12 yards. He had three plays that went for over 20 yards, including a 40 yard reception in the fourth quarter.

Jackson will look for a repeat Week 13 against the Bengals. 


Report: Bucs bracing for heavy trade interest in Vincent Jackson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Buccaneers are bracing for a myriad of trade inquiries after the season regarding veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson, according to The Tampa Tribune. About a half-dozen teams inquired about Jackson's availability leading up to the trade deadline in October and the number is expected to grow in the offseason.

The Bucs could be willing to move Jackson as Mike Evans continues to develop into a star receiver. Jackson is due to make $9.78 million in 2015.

Jackson leads the team with 94 targets. He is second in receptions (43), receiving yards (561) and receiving touchdowns (two). Evans leads the Bucs in catches (46), receiving yards (794) and touchdowns (seven).


Bucs WR Vincent Jackson totals 43 yards Week 11


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson totaled three catches for 43 yards during a 27-7 win Week 11 at Washington. He was targeted four times and his longest catch went 18 yards.

Jackson has gone without a touchdown catch in six straight games. He hasn't gone over 100 yards in five straight games.

The Bucs are back in action Week 12 at Chicago.


Vincent Jackson draws 13 targets in home loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/9/2014) Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson drew a game-high 13 targets in the Week 10 home loss to Atlanta. He caught eight passes for 75 yards, giving him 14 catches for 161 yards over the past two weeks.

Jackson, however, has not scored since Week 4 and has just two touchdowns. He'll visit the Redskins in Week 11.


Vincent Jackson active as expected


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/9/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson, who was questionable with a knee injury, is active as expected for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Jackson has not missed a game this season, catching 32 passes for 443 yards and two touchdowns.

Doug Martin among notable Buccaneers labeled questionable


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) The Buccaneers unveiled a lengthy injury report for Week 10 vs. Atlanta. Doug Martin is among the most notable players on the list. He was labeled doubtful for Sunday's game with an ankle injury. Alterraun Verner (hamstring) and Anthony Collins (foot) were the only other players deemed doubtful.

The following players were ruled questionable: Lavonte David (knee), Vincent Jackson (foot), Michael Johnson (hand), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (thumb), Charles Sims (ankle), Akeem Spence (hamstring) and Luke Stocker (hip).


Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson limited Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has been upgraded from a DNP Wednesday to limited participation in Thursday practice. He has been dealing with a knee issue.

Jackson, who is coming off a strong effort against Cleveland in which he caught six passes for 86 yards, has played in all eight games this season and is likely to be good-to-go for Sunday against Atlanta.


Vincent Jackson may be losing ground


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) On the one hand, Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a bounce-back performance Week 9 at Cleveland, catching six passes for 86 yards a week after catching one for 13. On the other hand, he still wasn't the Buccaneers' most productive wide receiver in a game where they aired it out.

That honor went to rookie Mike Evans, who had seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Though he finished with one fewer target than Jackson, who had 12, he was clearly the more impressive of the two. While Jackson once again struggled with drops, even a couple of Evans' misses were still great catches, just out of bounds. And of course, he had the touchdowns.

Because of his size, speed and reputation, Jackson will always get a lot of passes thrown his way, but he converts on such a low percentage of them that Evans may soon pass him as the Buccaneers' go-to guy. And since they aren't normally a team that piles up the passing yards, that would be a discouraging development for Jackson's Fantasy value.

He deserves another shot with a favorable matchup Week 10 against Atlanta, but he's on thin ice as far as startability goes.


Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson has strong Week 9 effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Buccaneers veteran wideout Vincent Jackson took a backseat to breakout rookie teammate Mike Evans in Cleveland on Sunday, but he certainly contributed offensively.

Jackson was targeted a game-high 12 times and caught six for 86 yards. He snagged three big passes on one drive in the third quarter, but was blanked in the fourth as his team was saddled with another defeat. The 86 yards for Jackson exceeded his total from the previous two games combined.

Now on pace for 886 yards receiving this season, Jackson will try to significantly raise that total with the Falcons in town in Week 10.


Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson fine for game in Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson has been given the green light for Week 9 action against the host Browns. The move comes as no surprise - he had been listed as probable with a rib problem.


Two red-lighted by Buccaneers for Week 9 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Linebacker Brandon Magee (knee) and kick returner Trindon Holliday (hamstring) have been ruled out by the Buccaneers for their Sunday game in Cleveland.

Those listed as doubtful are tackle Anthony Collins (foot) and featured back Doug Martin (ankle). Defensive end Michael Johnson (hand) is questionable while center Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee) and wideout Vincent Jackson (rib) are probable.


Vincent Jackson not such a great play


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/29/2014) On a day when the Buccaneers couldn't get anything going offensively Week 8 against Minnesota, wide receiver Vincent Jackson was barely involved, catching one pass for 13 yards. He was targeted five times, but for a player who misses a lot of the balls thrown his way, both because of his role in the passing game and his issues with drops, that's a pretty low number. He averaged 10.0 targets in his first six games.

Even worse for Jackson, quarterback Mike Glennon has developed a nice rapport with both Mike Evans and Louis Murphy, and the Buccaneers passing attack isn't prolific enough to sustain three wide receivers. Is it more likely to sustain him than those other two? Yeah, probably. But it'll likely cut into his production regardless.

And it could cut into his production in a big way Week 9 at Cleveland. The Browns don't rank especially high against the pass, but they don't give up many touchdowns through the air, allowing the fourth-lowest quarterback rating of any team this season. Cornerback Joe Haden, who has played better in recent weeks after a slow start, is a big reason for that, and he'll likely go up against Jackson on Sunday.

Neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard rank Jackson among their top 30 wide receivers -- and that's in a week with six teams on bye.
