Buccaneers Most Disappointing Players of the 2016 Season
Although the Bucs as a whole had a better year than most thought, there were a few players who disappointed. a few names can be thrown out there but to me, none of them were more disappointing than Vincent Jackson.
Jackson only appeared in five games before he was done for the season with an injury, but in those five games, he only had 15 receptions on 32 targets. In week one of the regular season, it was also known that Jackson ran the wrong route which caused Jameis to throw an interception. Always disappointing, but especially disappointing from a veteran.
Overall, Jackson seemed uninterested in playing. Simple mistakes and lack of effort (or what seemed like it) were disappointing from a player of his caliber. We have all seen what he is capable when he plays to the best of his abilities. Hopefully, next year can be a strong year for the big wide receiver, I don’t think he is done yet. A strong year from Jackson will mean a great deal to Mike Evans, Jameis Winston and the rest of this Bucs offense.
