Jackson provides Bucs with needed weapon, Garcon joins 49ers


DeSean Jackson has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the San Francisco 49ers officially added Pierre Garcon.

Former Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins standout Jackson will join a Bucs team that could use a deep threat at receiver.

Tampa Bay had no passing play go 50 yards or more in 2016, the only team that failed to do so.

Jackson had four by himself and averaged an NFL-best 17.9 yards per catch.

Meanwhile, the 49ers have signed wide receiver Garcon on a five-year deal.

Garcon, 30, caught 79 passes for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns last season while in the Redskins' balanced aerial attack.

He is set to be the number one receiver in San Francisco.
