"They (Eagles and Seahawks) are making calls, and I'm told they are not alone," Rapoport said. "The name to focus on for the trade deadline: Vincent Jackson. He is, from what I understand, he is generating more phone calls than anyone. You mentioned the Seahawks, you mentioned the Eagles, the Patriots are also among the more than four teams calling for the star No. 1 receiver.
"From what I understand, the Bucs would be willing to trade Vincent Jackson -- who's making $10 million this year and set to make as much next year -- for the right price. So what would that be? A second-round pick. One of those teams is willing to offer a second-round pick, I would think this trade gets done. (The Bucs) might actually take a third, too."
Despite the posturing by Smith, the Bucs are smart to consider moving the highly paid veteran receiver. Tampa already has Jackson's heir apparent in Mike Evans.
