What do you do if you’re one of the top free agents on the NFL market and you can sign with a new team in just one day? If you’re DeSean Jackson, the answer is “troll everyone with vague Instagram posts”.
Well, that doesn’t really look like Tampa, unless you squint and do some wishful rationalization. It looks more like California — which makes sense, because that’s where Jackson lives. As Rick Stroud suggests: he’s probably in his home, waiting to hear where he’s going to hop on a plane to tomorrow.
All indications are that that place will be Tampa, and that he will sign with the Bucs. Every single sign points to the Bucs as frontrunners, and there have been no concrete reports on any other team as a likely spot — only vague insinuations of interest. Meanwhile, the Bucs have this:
For all the talk that D Jackson is heading back to Philly, I am told the big money bidder is the Bucs at over 10 per year....wow.....— michael lombardi (@mlombardiNFL) March 8, 2017
That doesn’t mean a deal will definitely get done. The Bucs have walked away from free agents because they’re too expensive quite frequently in recent years. But if I were a betting man, I’d put some money on Jackson-to-Bucs.
