Vincent Jackson is another big wide receiver that can be a game-changer. Jackson, while in San Diego, was one of the most explosive wide receivers in the league.
Jackson, on paper, is going to make Tampa Bay much better at wide receiver; good NFL wide receivers often don’t transition well.
One example of a player switching teams is Braylon Edwards. He was a solid No. 2 wide receiver for the New York Jets in 2010. He averaged 56 yards a game and was the team’s primary deep threat.
In 2011, Edwards went to the San Francisco 49ers and averaged just over 20 yards a game in nine games.
To go with the problems of learning a new offense and going from Philip Rivers to Josh Freeman; Jackson also has to figure out a way to stay out of trouble. If Jackson wants to make the going from the Changers to Buccaneers a smooth one, he needs to be able keep his nose clean.
Some people think Jackson is going to make the Bucs a real threat. When you combine a lesser quarterback, a new system and the chances of off-the-field problems; Jackson could very easily disappoint in 2012.
