Former Buccaneers playmaker signs with Baltimore Ravens.
Around midseason, teams throughout the league are assessing their free-agent and market choices as there are only a few weeks left before the NFL Trade Deadline.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Tuesday, veteran playmaker and former Buccaneer DeSean Jackson has signed with the Baltimore Ravens for the remainder of the season.
Jackson was worked out by the team earlier in the day, said Jackson's agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Jackson joins a group of wide receivers that also includes Demarcus Robinson, Tylan Wallace, Devin Duvernay, James Proche II, and Bateman. Together, these players have made 41
catches for 580 yards and six touchdowns. During Bateman's two-game absence, the wide receivers only managed 12 catches for 122 yards.
DeSean Jackson should right away be considered one of the Ravens' top deep threats despite his numerous travels. The 15-year veteran had a career-best 22.7 yards per reception
last year while playing for the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders. This includes eight catches for 221 yards (27.6 YPR) with the Raiders and a touchdown.
He still has some explosiveness, and he has stated a desire to play with Lamar Jackson. DeSean Jackson will have that opportunity now that he is nearing the end of his career.
