I've watched Dexter Jackson play for quite some time, being a Buccaneer's fan. He's very much a "system guy" who thrives in Monte Kiffin's so-called "Tampa 2" structure. He's benefitted, in Tampa, from having one of the best corners in football effectively shutting down one part of the field in Ronde Barber and from having Derrick Brooks playing right in front of him. Once he left the Bucs after winning Super Bowl MVP, he struggled mightily and really only returned to form when he was re-united with Kiffin.
Who knows, he might be great with a defensive coach like Marvin Lewis calling the shots -- but he's not a player I'd have actively been persuing.
