The Bucs might be on a bye week this week, but they are still heavily in the news. After it was reported that the Bucs had inquired about Percy Harvin with the Seahawks, it appears the Bucs are also receiving a lot of interest from teams interested in their own receiver Vincent Jackson.
"They are getting a ton of calls on him," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said. "With just one win, I'm told they are open to anything even though they love him as a player."
Jackson is in the 3rd year of a 5-year $55.55 million deal, but all of his $26 million in guaranteed money has been given to him. He currently costs about $10 million against the Bucs cap, and that number will stay the same through the 2016 season.
There is no telling what the Bucs might be able to retrieve for the 31 year old Jackson. He has been a model teammate and citizen since coming to the Buccaneers. Jackson has been a true go-to target for whomever has been throwing him the ball. I believe the Bucs will aim to get a high draft choice, most likely a 2nd round draft pick for Jackson. With multiple teams allegedly interested in him, the Bucs might just pull the trigger if the offer they do receive is good enough.
