Bucs’ Vincent Jackson Having A Strong Year


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — During a season in which little has gone right for Tampa Bay’s sputtering offense, receiver Vincent Jackson has quietly put together another Pro Bowl-caliber season for the Buccaneers.

The ninth-year pro’s accomplishments for an injury-riddled unit that ranked 29th in the NFL in scoring and last in passing and total offense have been overshadowed by a 4-11 record that not only will keep the Bucs out of the playoffs for the sixth straight year but could also prompt the team’s third coaching change since 2007.

Heading into Sunday’s season finale at New Orleans, Jackson has a career-best 74 receptions for 1,189 yards and seven touchdowns. It’s his third straight 1,000-yard season, second with Tampa Bay.
