The 30-year-old wideout is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him register 56 receptions for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns with the Washington Redskins. The former Philadelphia Eagles star has now topped 1,000 yards in three of the past four seasons.
Jackson is a three-time Pro Bowler who is regarded as one of the NFL's best deep threats, as evidenced by the following tweet from Andy Benoit of Sports Illustrated:

It’s not just that DeSean Jackson is fast, it’s that he also tracks the ball remarkably well.2017-2-27 17:19:31
D-Jax has led the league in yards per reception on three occasions, including last season at 17.9 yards per grab.
Provided Jackson and the Bucs come to official terms, he will become part of a formidable receiver duo with Mike Evans.
Evans is best known for his size and leaping ability, which makes Jackson an ideal complement due to his blazing speed.
Jameis Winston is one of the NFL's fastest-rising young quarterbacks, and the addition of Jackson is a move that should help his development significantly.
That leaves Jamison Crowder as Washington's only established wideout.
