On Tuesday, Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson learned that he had been named to his third Pro Bowl and his first as part of the NFC squad. Jackson, the first alternate at his position, was chosen because Detroit’s Calvin Johnson will be unable to play due to injury.
Jackson had this to say about his selection:
“It’s always humbling to be selected to the Pro Bowl, and I would not have been able to achieve this without the help of my coaches, teammates, and the Buccaneers staff. With all of the hard work we put in during the offseason and regular season, for it to be recognized by not only the fans, but also your peers in the league, is simply an incredible honor. I truly appreciate the support and am thrilled to share this amazing experience with the entire Buccaneer Nation.”
