As everything with Winston’s suspension has been unfolding, we’ve heard from media members, Winston and the league, but we haven’t heard too much from other Buccaneers teammates. In a video interview obtained by TMZ, someone caught up with Bucs WR DeSean Jackson outside of the LAX airport and asked him a few question on Winston’s situation.

“You can’t turn your back on someone when they going through something,” Jackson said via TMZ. “He’s a good dude and a good teammate… He’s been though a lot in his career. He’s alright. He’ll bounce back.”

According to this, Jackson has his quarterback’s back. When asked whether or not he thinks the Buccaneers organization are going to cut ties with Winston, he essentially said that decision was above his pay grade — but he hopes they don’t.

“That’s past my decision. I can’t speak on that,” Jackson said. “I wish they don’t, though. We still got work to do.”

  2. Kirk Cousins throwing 2016 DeSean Jackson 1005 yards

    Jamies Winston throwing 2017 DeSean Jackson 668 yars

    Imagine that sounds like he sliding a little almost 50%
    Were those finds open in endzone you use to get from “Kirk with eyes open” DeSean ??????

      • You literally said that he looks like a dude who would support Winston ( and that the picture was worth a thousand words. The picture is literally just Djax, as black man, wearing a hoodie.

      • And we all know you falsely view Jameis as a degenerate, sex-crazed, evil super villainn. So what did you mean by saying that Desean would support the guy, that you view in the way you do, based on his appearance in the photograph?

        • Desean is wishful thinking all will be ok and Jamies will deliver him the good passes

          • Pfft way to completely dodge the question. That pathetic response had absolutely zero with the question that was posed to you about your comments.

            Face it, you’re deeply and intrinsically biased against Jameis and black men in hoodies because you’re prejudiced.

    • He had 4k yds in his rookie and 2nd season! He’s no Brady or Montana but he’s playing with the leagues worst D, horrible OL and no running game. When they were better in 2010 we went 9-7 if they paly even better 10-6.

      But Roger the Weasel railroads JW on NO evidence NADA. RG is a disgrace to the NFL.

  6. I remember DeSean in end zone waving arms jumping up and down open and Jamies throws it to evens in triple coverage for nothing .
    Desean not tall enough to catch those wild high passes like Evans

  7. I think Desean is a good receiver he came here thinking he would be with a good QB, that was big mistake he no longer has a Kirk Cousins to find him open in the end zone, I feel sorry for him now part of a Jason Licht /Jamies Winston clown show.

  8. Mike.Seven, I think Schwifty pretty much exposed what was under that white sheet you are wearing around.
    But here, I will give you another chance.
    Tell everyone out here you are repulsed by the same, if not worse behavior of Donald Trump and Ben Rothelisberger and neither should have the job they cherish because of thier abysmal disgusting behavior.
    In the meantime, Cousins had a lot more years to play and become familiar with Jackson didn;t he.
    I will be checking back in to look for a reply from you in regards to Don and Ben.
    Hoping to see you do the right thing by announcing publicly both men are pigs and should be serving fast food somewhere.

    • White sheet? I am repulsed by bad behavior of Jamies off the field and I am not happy with the on field performance I knew he was not going to change once drafted and here we are 2018 in seriuod doubt.
      I am not a Pittsburgh fan and did not look into anything that had to do with Steelers.
      I never brought up color or race in any post I have ever left. I am as hard on Jason Licht as I am on Jamies Winston they both make me ill equally.

      • Mike we are talking about this in 2018 because no one said anything about this in 2016 when it supposedly happened. i’m not saying he did or did’nt do what he is accused of . Honestly he does even know whether or not he did. I will say this the NFL jumped the without any proof . You know it and I know it . As for Winston’s game he is playing average at time but he was coming around at the season. this is a contract year. watch him work.

  15. My wife who watched first game 5 years ago said Mike we are moving to Carmel Ca in fall 49ers have a winning QB and coach, Bucs are in the garbage with no sight of any change

    save your blood pressure and watch a better team, give up on that loser team. They have maybe 10 fans left after years of BS.

    With that I say goodbye.

  16. Remind me never to get into a foxhole with you Mike.Seven.
    Carmel is a pretty toney community.
    You won’t be bumping into to many people of color up there so you should feel right at home.
    You don’t know about Big Ben’s problem in Pittsburg? Did you live in an NFL vacum before just recently.
    And I didn’t get your response about Donnie Trump’s slimy despeicable behavior.
    Oh well, you must have been a great fan of the Bucs since you are ready to jettison them as soon as you get to “Carmel.”
    I have to thank Schwifty9 for calling you out and exposing who you really are.
    He busted you big time
    I hope you keep your promise and don’t return.

  19. What a load of crap. I lived in Houston, TX for the last 7 years and as bad as the Bucs were I never thought about being a Texans fan. This team might piss me off with some of the horrible plays, coaching and GM moves, but this is my team and that won’t be changing any time soon.

    • Ditto!! Go Bucs!!! Odious Mike.Seven… please stay gone! True NFL Fans hear about all that goes on in the NFL Community, through plenty of different outlets… There’s absolutely no way, you didn’t hear about Big Ben’s allegation(s) if you were a fan of ANY team in the league at the time! And Desean Jackson’s look was an attempt to remain low key and not draw attention to himself, since he is somewhat of a celebrity genius! I’ve seen players of different races etc wear this are look while traveling publicly, so they wouldn’t draw attention and could travel in peace.
