Vincent Jackson, Bucs Nearing A Deal, According To Report

Before free agency even started, there were rumors were connecting free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Barely an hour into free agency, reports are now saying Jackson, who has played for the San Diego Chargers for the last seven seasons, will be joining the Bucs.

It's not a done deal, but according to various reports, it's getting close. The Bucs are among the league leaders in salary cap space, so they can afford to get it done. Jackson could get a contract with average annual salary exceeding $10 million per season.

The Chargers selected Jackson out of Northern Colorado in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft. When the deal's done, he will immediately upgrade the Bucs receiving corps and become a deep threat for Josh Freeman. This appears to be a solid pickup for Freeman and the Bucs, who took a big step backwards last season to finish 4-12 after winning 10 games in 2010.
