TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Bay Buccaneers dissatisfied broad receiver DeSean Jackson has revealed he would like to join the Los Angeles Rams even though he is under contract with Bucs for another season.
Seems with former Philadelphia Eagles teammate Michael Vick on Simms and Lefkoe Podcast on Tuesday, Jackson, responded to a suggestion that he joined the San Francisco 49ers, said: "I don't know Frisco, man. Treasury is crazy man .home though.I don't know … If anything, I'd like to end up in LA, be a Ram Sean McVay, we know we got a connection from when I was in DC, but we I will see how it plays out, man. Right now I have a year in Tampa so we can see how it plays out, man. "
Bucs top WR says a turn of the team will have to start with the players, and he is eager to get everyone to work against the same goal.
Jackson indicated that he will play for a coach and with a quarterback who understands the needs of a veteran player. At 32 o'clock, Jackson is the oldest broad recipient of Bucs in about seven years, although Vincent Jackson played for former head coach Dirk Koetter and with quarterback Jameis Winston until age 33 and would occasionally take maintenance days from practice.
"I think where I've been able to get into my career as professional athletes have so much success and early in our career [s] are Pro Bowlers and are some of the players who have done some Things that no other player has done, you kind of create the model and mold behind it, like: "I know what it takes to get the job done," Jackson said.
"But then Do you have some coaches who have the old-school mentality where, "You have to go to practice. You have to do it this way." But we are like: "As long as Sunday comes, between the white lines, we do what it takes, we know what to do." "
Jackson did not specify which trainer his comments were specifically about. One source told ESPN that Koetter entered a verbal misunderstanding with Jackson in practice this season over his perceived lack of effort and told him he would not Run full speed as he should leave. Jackson and Winston struggled to develop chemistry over the past two seasons.
"Not to say anything bad about anyone else, but you have younger guys who need reps on a Friday, where to look like: "I'll see I'm throwing my hardest. I'm like, Bridge, I'm in my 11th. As we let down a little, let's get ready for sunday so i can be good. & having to have a guy like i want in my career right now, this is where i know i need a guy who understands you know, sometimes every rep in practice you do not need it, but as long as playing time comes, you get it, it is there. "
Jackson also revealed that t he has cut off ways with agent Joel Segal after the podcast values suggested he joined the ears. "I don't have an agent right now," Jackson said. "I'm negotiating right now (laughing)…. We may be talking behind closed doors. There are too many cameras around."
Jackson had been with Segal since 2013. Segal also represented Vick and represents Winston, among a number of other top players.
Rams or another NFL team is not allowed to contact Jackson directly because he is under contract with Bucs for 2019 and that would be a violation of the rules of manipulation. Jackson is also not allowed to negotiate with other teams as long as he is under contract with Buccaneers. None of Jackson's $ 10 million wages are guaranteed, but so theoretically, Bucs could cut him without financial consequences if there is no willing trading partner.
