Vincent Jackson on Josh McCown: 'I love what I have seen so far'

Tampa Bay Buccaneers star wide receiver Vincent Jackson is one of the best in the business, and he and fellow big, long-striding wideout Mike Evans could eventually form one of the league’s most dangerous duos. Both wide receivers give their quarterbacks plenty of margin for error with their large size and catch radii, and they also possess game-breaking speed and top-notch red zone ability. To wit, Jackson has over 50 touchdown receptions in his career, and he still has several good years left in him at 31.

Jackson told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he’s excited with what he’s seen from Josh McCown so far this offseason, and his new quarterback certainly has experience putting up big numbers with big wideouts on the outside. Jackson said of McCown, “I love what I have seen so far…he can make all the throws and we are building that chemistry.”

It’s great to hear that Jackson and McCown are on their way to building a strong partnership, and both players are easy to work with in the passing game. Jackson recorded 78 receptions for 1,224 yards and seven touchdowns last season, and he is an incredibly consistent player who will always rack up big numbers. Look for bigger yardage totals next year, and V-Jax is the best big receiver in the league at winning downfield. McCown doesn’t have the strongest arm in the world, but his efficiency and placement will bode well for Jackson.
