DeSean Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver, broke Jerry’s Rice’s record for the most touchdown catches of 60 or more yards during Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. DeSean Jackson now has 24 career touchdowns of 60 or more yards, which is the most in NFL history. Jackson was humbled when he received a congratulatory Tweet from Jerry Rice who he regards as the G.O.A.T. [Greatest of All Time] who shared his wisdom and knowledge about the game early in his Jackson’s career.
Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston hit DeSean Jackson in the second quarter before the veteran went untouched for the score to make the game 21-6. DeSean Jackson reached another career milestone in last week’s win over the Cleveland Browns when he became the 47th NFL player to reach 10,000 receiving yards.
During the post-game interviews, Jackson expressed his gratitude to the Tampa Buccaneers, the Glazer Family and his teammates for giving him the opportunity to achieve this major milestone in his career. “I take pride in knowing that I achieved this goal in a Bucs‘ jersey for our team and the Buccaneer fans” stated Jackson.
