Can't blame him

31-year-old receiver DeSean Jackson wants out of Tampa Bay and has reportedly asked the Buccaneers for a trade.  Early in the season he rode FitzMagic, as did the rest of the Bucs, but hasn't clicked with Jameis Winston since he took over.

Via NFL.com:

Jackson got off to a hot start, with big-time chemistry with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He eclipsed the 100-yard mark in three of his first four games.

But that same chemistry has not been there with now-starter Jameis Winston. Off the field, they get along well. On the field, they haven't always clicked -- not how Jackson did with Fitzpatrick.

Jackson, 31, is making $11 million this year and has an unguaranteed $10 million next year. That contract could be tradable. And in some situations, the Bucs may want to shed the salary with a 3-3 record and sitting in third place in the division, nevermind highly paid Mike Evans and budding star Chris Godwin.

There are plenty of teams who could use the deep threat that Jackson still is.  The question will be, what do the Bucs want in return for him?
