Vincent Jackson “being patient” about a job for 2017

In March, there was a report that veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson wanted to continue his playing career in 2017 and Jackson confirmed as much in an interview with WDAE late last week.

Jackson appeared on “The Pat and Aaron Show” and said that he’s heard from teams about possibly joining them this offseason. He said he’s interested in finding the right spot and that he’ll bide his time until such a situation presents itself.

“I’m just going to wait until the right opportunity presents itself,” Jackson said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “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. For me man, I’m being patient.”

Jackson only played in 15 games for the Buccaneers over the last two seasons and a knee injury brought his 2016 campaign to an early end. He also touched on the possibility of returning to the Bucs, who signed DeSean Jackson as a free agent, during the interview.

Jackson said there haven’t been negotiations about a return, but complimented coach Dirk Koetter’s offensive approach and said he believed he’d bring “a lot of different things” to the team if he did find his way back to Tampa.

    He could be a redzone asset, but that’s about it at this point.

    Saints could use a guy like him as well.

    He won’t be back with the Bucs. Sign it, seal it, and take it to the bank. It’s a shame, because VJ was a lot of the time the lone shining star on some terrible Bucs teams. But with Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson on the outside, Cameron Brake at TE, and Adam Humphries working his magic in the slot (that’s what she said), not only is there not a roster spot for VJ, there won’t be enough balls to go around.

    I hope he finds happiness somewhere, because he was a great Bucs and an even better man.

    He’s 34. The most important fact NOT in the article.

    Has anyone else ever been penalized for kicking the challenge flag?

    VJ, come back home to San Diego!

    Oh wait….

    Dallas, New Orleans, Green Bay. Those are his most likely suitors, in my opinion

    The Eagles could still use another “band-aid” this season.
