After tallying the votes, the 2013 Bucs Nation Offensive Player of the Year is wide receiver Vincent Jackson

Quite simply, Vincent Jackson is one of the best free agent signings this team has ever had (I'm sure we can rival him with Hardy NIckerson as THE best in team history). V-Jax has given the Bucs a dominant #1 receiver that even Joey Galloway and Keyshawn Johnson could not compare to. Jackson's season was not without inconsistency and drops, but he still put great numbers for the second season in a row, despite constant double teams (mainly due to the lack of a true #2 thanks to Mike Williams' injury).

Jackson's highlight reel expanded this season, as he made several big catches, like the one handed gem against Atlanta, or the deep bomb against Philly. One of the many things Jackson does well is use his size and his hands to punish DBs who jump with him. Jackson's 7 touchdowns led the Bucs, and he once again led the team in receiving for the second straight season. Ironically, his best games of the season both came against the Falcons, where he put up double digit catches and over 120 yards receiving, He did this despite an inconsistent Josh Freeman and a rookie Mike Glennon throwing him balls, which is a true testament to his play.

Jackson is getting up in age (already in his early thirties), but we should enjoy his high productivity for a few more years. Hopefully with Mike Williams back and solid third receiver, Jackson can continue to enjoy the success he has had as a Buccaneer and continue to lead the receivers. The only thing missing on his resume is a ring, and he will be one of the key cogs to getting one.

Final Stats: 78 receptions, 1224 yards, 7 touchdowns
