Buccaneers | D. Jackson performs well Saturday

Scott Reynolds, of, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dexter M. Jackson performed well during the team's practices Saturday, Aug. 1. Jackson said, "I was not very comfortable last year as a receiver and I didn't feel like I could show the team what I could do. My agent told me to go out and compete like I did at the East-West Game and the Senior Bowl and compete." Jackson added, "I feel more physical because the guys like me that don't have a locked (roster) spot, they have to play on special teams. That's what has helped me just hitting guys and getting hit and changing my mentality. I'm having fun. I've had to learn how to take a hit. It's a tough thing to do at this level, but it has made me a better person not just to silence the critics."
