Free agent Vincent Jackson said he's "being patient" as he looks for his next landing spot.
"I’m just going to wait until the right opportunity presents itself," said V-Jax last week in an interview with WDAE Tampa Bay. "I’m assuming it may be later this spring/early summer when people can kind of evaluate their roster, get through the draft, and know exactly what they need and what the value is." Jackson hasn't drawn a lick of interest on the open market. Regardless of where he ends up, Jackson is no longer an impact player in real life or in fantasy. Sun, Apr 16, 2017 12:16:00 PM

Free agent Vincent Jackson hopes to re-sign with the Bucs.

Jackson wants to continue playing, but hasn't had any interest to this point. With Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson locked in outside, it's possible the Bucs bring him back to compete for slot reps with Adam Humphries. Jackson has been in decline the past few seasons and is coming off ACL surgery, but shouldn't cost more than the veteran minimum.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent Vincent Jackson will continue his playing career.

Coming off a season-ending knee injury, Jackson turned 34 in January. Even before getting hurt, his play fell off a cliff in recent years, so it's unclear if he even has much left in the tank. But Jackson sounds like he hopes to get another chance, unlike Roddy White did last year. Jackson will almost certainly have to settle for a one-year deal for a couple million bucks.

ESPN's Jenna Laine reports there's a "possibility" free agent Vincent Jackson retires.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Dirk Koetter intimated the team was moving on from the 34 year old. Jackson was a successful free agent signing in Tampa, but has really slowed down the past few seasons. He's also coming off an ACL injury.

Coach Dirk Koetter said the Bucs have "had talks" with free agent Vincent Jackson about returning for another season.

At 34 years old, it's unclear what Jackson's plans are for 2017. He's coming off an ACL injury and hasn't been effective for a couple years now, so it's possible he's considering retirement. If he does opt to continue his playing career, Jackson shouldn't command much in terms of guaranteed money.

Vincent Jackson (knee, IR) has been ruled out for the season.

The good news is Jackson didn't suffer a torn ACL as previously reported. His knee injury is still serious enough that he won't be returning. In the final year of his deal, Jackson has likely played his last game with the Bucs and is a candidate to retire. Charles Sims will be Tampa's IR/recall player.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said the team is not sure Vincent Jackson (IR) completely tore his ACL.

Koetter said Jackson will have another MRI soon. Good news could mean Jackson would return this year, but Charles Sims is also a candidate for the return spot. The Bucs are very thin behind Mike Evans, with Cecil Shorts expected to start this week in Jackson's place. Russell Shepard, Donteea Dye, and Louis Murphy (knee, PUP) will likely see snaps as well in the coming weeks.
Sat, Oct 22, 2016 10:40:00 AM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Bucs have yet to "definitively" diagnose Vincent Jackson's (injured reserve) ACL injury as a tear.

Jackson apparently needs further testing. In theory, he could get news that allows him to return after eight weeks, but we wouldn't bet on it. The Bucs are woefully thin at wideout behind Mike Evans.

Bucs placed WR Vincent Jackson on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Jackson suffered the injury in Tampa's Week 5 Monday night win over the Panthers, but didn't realize he was injured until after the game. It ends an inglorious year for the 33-year-old wideout, and likely his Bucs tenure. Signed to a five-year, $55.5 million deal in 2012, Jackson was the rare free agent who kept playing at a high level, but has seen his production fall off each of the past three years. He turns 34 in January, and will be damaged goods in free agency. The Bucs will move forward with slot man Adam Humphries as their No. 2 receiver. It's not a good situation.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Jackson on the shelf, Mike Evans and Cameron Brate are both very intriguing targets. SF ranks dead last in DVOA against #1 WRs, and Evans was already a strong play, so he's an even stronger target at this point. Adam Humphries should pick up most of the slack at WR, but Brate is the more appealing DFS option.

Vincent Jackson suffered a knee injury Week 5 against the Panthers.

The Bucs were on bye last week, and Jackson was still not able to practice on Monday. It is possible this injury keeps him out a game or two. The Bucs have zero depth behind Mike Evans. Adam Humphries would likely see more targets if Jackson is forced to miss time. Jackson was limited to 10 games last season because of a pair of knee injuries.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 10:56:00 AM

Vincent Jackson caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Bucs' Week 5 win over the Panthers.

This has become the new normal for Jackson. He's yet to top four catches or 44 yards in any game this season. Mike Evans is dominating the looks outside. Jackson has become waiver-wire fodder in 12-team leagues.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 12:24:00 AM

Vincent Jackson caught 3-of-5 passes for 38 yards in the Bucs' Week 4 loss to the Broncos.

V-Jax heads into the season's quarter pole having yet to surpass 44 yards. He's on pace for 48/548. A string of brutal matchups has not helped, but Jackson appears to be a shell of his former self. The Panthers' pass defense is in full-on collapse, but Jackson won't be on the Week 5 radar.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 09:20:00 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 3-of-6 targets for 37 yards in Tampa's Week 3 loss to the Rams.

V-Jax mixed in a defensive pass interference, but was ultimately invisible for the third straight game. One of his missed connections was a drop at the Rams' nine-yard line. Jackson now has 99 yards on the season. He's been passed in importance by Adam Humphries. With V-Jax's struggles coming on the heels of an underwhelming 2015, he's not a must hold in 12-team leagues.
Sun, Sep 25, 2016 08:38:00 PM

Vincent Jackson insists he's still playing at a high level.

Jackson has been targeted 16 times, but turned it into just six catches for 62 yards. "Come out and watch practice,'' Jackson said Thursday. "What you see on Sunday sometimes doesn’t always translate to what’s reality, you know what I mean? I feel great. ... Our coaches have all the confidence in me, obviously, my teammates do as well." The fact that Jackson had to make the comments at all obviously isn't a good sign. In the middle of his age-33 campaign, Jackson is just a WR4/5.
Thu, Sep 22, 2016 03:09:00 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 4-of-9 targets for 44 yards in Tampa's Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

Most of V-Jax's targets came with the game well out of hand in the second half. V-Jax has secured just 6-of-16 balls through two games, producing 62 scoreless yards. He's a distant No. 2 behind Mike Evans on the depth chart.
