RIP: Vincent Jackson

RIP: Vincent Jackson
15 Feb
Not in Hall of Fame

It has been reported that Vincent Jackson, former NFL Wide Receiver, has been found dead in his hotel room in Brandon, Florida.  He was only 38 years old.  The cause of death has not been given, but it is known that his family reported him missing on February 10, and found at the hotel he was staying in two days later. He had checked in the hotel on the 11th.

Jackson played his college football at Northern Colorado and he was drafted in the second round by the San Diego Chargers, where he played until 2011.  With the Chargers, he went to two Pro Bowls, and had three four-digit seasons in yardage.  Jackson joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he played five more seasons, where he again had three 1,000-yard plus years, and went to his third Pro Bowl in 2012. That year he led the NFL in Yards per Reception (19.2).

Jackson amassed 9,080 Yards with 57 Touchdowns over his 12-year career. 

We here at would like to offer our condolences to the friends, fans and family of Vincent Jackson.
