NFL Free Agency 2012: Vincent Jackson Signs 5-Year Deal With Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the 2012 NFL free agency season with more cap space than any other team, a whopping $45 million. The Bucs wasted little time using that space, as they signed star wide receiver Vincent Jackson to a mammoth five-year deal, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Via @AdamSchefter:

It's certainly the biggest deal of the short free agency period so far. Jackson had 60 catches for 1100 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He's 29 years old and this will be his 8th season in the league, with all of the previous seven coming in San Diego.
