One of the best receivers in franchise history and one of the best free-agent signings after Nickerson and Rice. I’m very glad Jackson was a Buccaneer and he lived up to the excitement he brought when he was signed to a symbolic 5-year, $55.55 million contract.

True professional, on and off the field.

His signing really paid off, he was a great mentor to Evans also.

Thanks VJ!

He was super nice from my limited interaction. Went to an open camp the Bucs had a couple of years ago. Pretty sure he was the only starter going around signing autographs after. Even when the rest of the people went in and the event had been official over he was still their. He signed and took pictures with every last fan. There was a long line of fans. All the reatailers were packed up before he finished.
