Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson is likely done for the season due to a thumb injury, and has likely played his last game for Tampa Bay, according to the Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud.
Tampa Bay can cut Jackson after the season and completely clear his $10 million from their books for 2019.
Additionally, Jackson, who signed a three-year, $33.5 million deal with the Bucs in 2017, requested a trade back in October and has been upset with his role with team. Jackson has not been able to form chemistry with quarterback Jameis Winston, compounding the issue.
Jackson, 32, may not be the speedster that he once was, but he could be a viable free agent to hit the market this offseason.
Lions Release Glover Quin
The Detroit Lions have released veteran safety Glover Quin, according to an official team announcement.
In related moves, the Lions cut wide receiver Bruce Ellington and linebacker Nicholas Grigsby from the roster.
“We thank Glover for his countless contributions to the Detroit Lions during his six seasons with our team,” Lions general manager Bob Quinn said, via an official team statement.
“Since joining the organization in 2013, Glover exemplified everything it means to be a true professional in this league — as both a competitor on the field and a leading voice in the community. Coach [Matt] Patricia and I have the utmost respect for him as a man and player, and we wish him nothing but the very best in the future.”
Quin, 33, started all 16 games last season for Detroit racking up 74 total tackles and 1 sack for the Lions.
Falcons Not Tending Brian Poole
Poole has played as the primary nickel back for the past three seasons in Atlanta and is coming off a career year in 2018 in which he set a number of career highs in tackles, sacks, and interceptions.
According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, the door is still open for Poole to return to the Falcons but he would have to agree to a lesser deal than the RFA tender.
