2017 was a rough year for DeSean Jackson. With Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick unable to connect with him on shots down the field, he was largely ineffective in his first season in red and pewter.
After signing a big-money deal last season, many felt he could be added to the list of bad free agent signings by the Bucs. 2018 might tell a different story.
Throughout training camp, it’s become commonplace to see highlights of Jackson speeding down the field for six points.
To see Jackson return to practice motivated and connecting with both quarterbacks so often has been shocking. Amidst a receiving corps loaded with talent, Jackson remains the game-breaking player the Bucs offense needs.
