That's because it appears field-stretching wide receiver DeSean Jackson is about to sign as a free agent later today.
Jackson may be 30, but he's still a speedster capable of getting open downfield.
The Bucs have lined up their second major signing of free agency, signing a three-year deal with Chris Baker, a 320-pound defensive tackle from the Redskins to upgrade their pass rush next to Gerald McCoy. Bryant struggled with injuries this past season, but turned it back on in the playoffs when he had nine receptions for 132 yards and two scores. With Jackson, Winston will be able to use his arm strength to blow the top off the defense and really make an impact. Before he joined the Redskins in 2014, Jackson played for the Philadelphia Eagles for six seasons (2008 to 2013). The NFL's "Next Gen Stats", which highlights the league's fastest players, lists Jackson with the third-fastest play in the league last season, a 22.6 miles per hour catch and run in Week 13 on a 59-yard pass play. No one could blame Jackson for not being willing to stay in Washington where it's unclear who's calling the shots, arranging contracts or, even, who will be throwing the ball in 2017.
The move is a significant warning shot to the rest of the division fired by Licht, who is looking to upgrade an offense that has the pieces to become one of the NFL's best. At one point, that could have been Vincent Jackson, but he's 34 and was hurt for much of last season.Читайте также: White House dodging questions of Sessions' role in Federal Bureau of Investigation probe
DeSean Jackson is expected to sign with the Buccaneers.
His four receptions of 50-plus yards past year were tied for second in the league.
What Jameis Winston wants, Jameis Winston gets. In Washington, the Redskins are apparently turning into a hot mess, and it looks like things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
