Wide receiver DeSean Jackson ready to shrug off disappointing year with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
DeSean Jackson is eager to rebound from one of the least productive seasons of his career and help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers end a long playoff drought.
The Bucs struggled a year ago to incorporate the speedy receiver into an offense expected to be more potent after the three-time Pro Bowl selection was signed to a $33.5 million contract in free agency.
Jackson, 31, established himself as one of the league's top deep threats over nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins.
He averaged a career-worst 13.4 yards per reception and scored just three touchdowns in his first year with Tampa Bay, which lost 10 of 13 following a 2-1 start to miss the playoffs for the 10th straight season.
