The 11-year veteran has missed the last three games due to a thumb injury

DeSean Jackson has been out the three weeks and make no mistake about it, the Buccaneers offense hasn’t been as efficient with him out of the lineup.

Not only is he still one of the best deep threats in football, but he just opens up the offense a lot more for guys like Chris Godwin and Cameron Brate. He helps balance things out, so the Buccaneers will welcome him back for the final two games of the regular season.

Two good games for Jackson can make the Buccaneers decision to keep or release him much harder in the offseason.
