Wide receiver DeSean Jackson ready to shrug off disappointing year with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

ABC Action News - August 22, 2018

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.
