After catching seven passes for 216 yards and a touchdown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was only a limited participant during Monday's practice. Jackson currently is sixth in the NFL in receiving yards (586) and fourth in receiving TDs (five). In his last three games alone, Jackson has 33 targets, 17 receptions for 382 yards and four TDs. This huge spike in production has Freeman playing like a high-end QB2. No practices were held, since the injury report is just a formality for teams with a Thursday night game.
Unfortunately for Tampa, they are 2-4 and are really struggling to stop their opponents' passing game. They allow 323 passing yards per game, 31st in the NFL. Tampa's balanced offense is performing well, but the poor defense is difficult to keep up with. Rooke Doug Martin has rushed for 408 yards and two TDs on 100 carries. Now just might be a great time to construct a sell-high trade involving Jackson.
