Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston gave DeSean Jackson his stamp of approval after he tried to sway Jackson to sign with Tampa. After Jackson ultimately decided to sign with the Bucs, he spoke very highly about Winston which could have been the main reason why he signed with Tampa.

“He has a determination to be great,” Jackson told ESPN on Thursday, per FloridaFootballInsiders.com. “It hasn’t even been a month since I’ve been with the Buccaneers and we’re going back and forth, texting, talking on the phone, and I can see how hungry he is.

“He wants to win. And not only win, but he wants to bring a championship to Tampa. I think those are the intangibles you want in any young quarterback, but he’s a guy that doesn’t just talk about that but has the work ethic, too. That’s what makes the difference.”

Jackson figures to be a perfect fit for the Buccaneers opposite of Mike Evans as the team’s deep threat. Jameis Winston has shown incredible maturation during his first 2 years in the NFL with the makings of a franchise quarterback. Tampa Bay could become playoff contenders heading into 2017.
