Jackson could see more time as a slot receiver this season, The Tampa Times reports.

Jackson and fellow 6-5 wideout Mike Evans will provide rookie quarterback Jameis Winston with a towering pair of targets, but new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter could experiment with Jackson as a slot receiver as well this season. In that scenario, Jackson's blend of size and speed would figure to overwhelm most nickel cornerbacks, creating a unique mismatch for Winston to capitalize on.

Jackson finished 2014 with 70 receptions, 1,002 yards and two touchdowns.

The emergence of rookie wideout Mike Evans and natural regression considerably diminished the veteran wideout's season. Jackson reached the 1,000-yard mark and played in all 16 games for a fourth straight season, but posted his worst numbers since arriving in Tampa. Despite his durability (he has played in at least 15 games in seven of the last eight seasons), the 31-year-old receiver has dealt with minor injuries including a hamstring issue in Week 17 and continues to show signs of aging. A significant dropoff could reasonably be expected next season, and he is clearly the Bucs' No. 2 wideout entering 2015.

Jackson suffered a groin injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints and is doubtful to return.

Jackson had one catch for 11 yards, putting him over 1,000 yards for the season, before departing with the injury. Considering what's at stake for the Buccaneers (nothing), and the fact that it would be more advantageous for them to lose and claim the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, it would not be surprising if Jackson is done for the day.

Jackson had three catches on six targets for a team-high 60 yards Sunday against the Packers.

The Bucs' offense struggled in its entirety Sunday, as evidenced by Jackson leading the team with only 60 yards, and they failed to score a touchdown. Jackson is a very boom-or-bust type player, though it's mostly just for yardage, as he has only two touchdowns this season, with the last one coming all the way back in Week 4. He'll look to break through one final time in Week 17 against the Saints, who are allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game this season.

Jackson had six catches on 10 targets for 70 yards Sunday against the Panthers.

Jackson led the Buccaneers in targets, receptions and receiving yards, but rookie Mike Evans once again scored a touchdown while Jackson was left without one. Jackson has now been targeted 27 times in the last two games, and he figures to be used heavily again in Week 16 against the Packers, who he will try to end his 10-game scoreless streak against.
