Player Outlook

Nobody will be excited to draft Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson this summer. How else should we feel after he had three games with 10-plus points last season? Worse yet, Jackson averaged 3.3 catches per game, low even for his standards. Even with Jameis Winston expected to improve in his second season, there just isn't a great reason to target V-Jax. He'll help fill out your bench with a pick in the double-digit rounds.

Player News
  • Jackson secured four of nine targets for 78 yards in Friday's 30-13 preseason victory over the Browns. The veteran wideout was actually the most heavily targeted receiver on the night, with his nine looks easily pacing the Bucs. Although he hauled in less than half of them, Jackson encouragingly made catches on a number of different routes, including a wide receiver screen, post and a fly pattern down the left sideline that went for 31 yards. He averaged a solid 19.5 yards a catch in the process and appeared fully healthy from the assortment of knee ailments that nagged him last season. Jackson is slated to see plenty of work in what has the potential to be an explosive passing game in 2016.

  • Jackson was a frequent and productive target of Jameis Winston in Thursday's joint practice with the Jags, of the team's official site reports. The veteran had his day in the sun during Thursday's session, making plays up and down the practice field. Jackson hauled in a pair of deep passes from Winston during the session and was also targeted frequently during team and seven-on-seven drills. Although he hasn't necessarily drawn any headlines during camp so far, Jackson's veteran savvy and steady presence remains an integral component of the Bucs' wide receiver corps, and offense as a whole, heading into the 2016 campaign.

  • Jackson (undisclosed) caught his only target for a 17-yard gain in Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles. The ailment that held Jackson out of Tuesday's practice is apparently of no concern. The 33-year-old wideout probably won't get too much playing time this preseason, as he's locked in to a starting job across from Mike Evans.

  • Jackson was held out of Tuesday's practice, with coach Dirk Koetter telling the media the veteran receiver is "banged up," Greg Augman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Jackson missed six games, and parts of others, due to knee issues last season, but he's played all 16 games in each of his previous four seasons. The 33-year-old finished 2015 with only 543 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games, but he averaged 16.5 yards per reception, and 28 of his 33 receptions went for first downs. He enters 2016 as the clear No. 2 behind third-year receiver Mike Evans in what figures to be a productive passing game, especially if Jameis Winston takes a significant step forward.

  • Jackson (undisclosed) is yet to participate in Tampa Bay's minicamp thus far, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Though undisclosed, Jackson's injury is said to be minor. Supporting this notion is head coach Dirk Koetter's declaration that the veteran wideout would have practiced were the team amid training camp. In Jackson's absence, Russell Shepard, Kenny Bell and Adam Humphries were all afforded extended looks.
