Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson will stick with the team on his base salary…
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers experienced their worst possible scenario as they limped to a 2-14 record, which was bad enough to land them the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Wide receiver Vincent Jackson had an underwhelming season by his standards as he caught 70 passes for 1,002 yards and just two touchdown catches.
1,000 receiving yards is nothing to scoff at though, especially considering Jackson had to deal with poor quarterback play from both Josh McCown and Mike Glennon.
The Buccaneers had signed their top receiver to a five-year, $55.5 million contract with the Buccaneers in 2012 and has lived up to his contract so far by reaching 1,000 yards in each of the past three seasons.
Due to his consistency, Jackson will return to the Buccaneers in 2015 on his same salary, which will be $9.78 million for the upcoming season.
He also carries a $12.2 million salary cap hit, but his presence gives the Buccaneers an elite starting receiver duo with Mike Evans coming off an incredible rookie season.
