We got our first chance to speak with the Bucs' assistant coaches today, providing us an opportunity to touch on a number of subjects.
One of the things that struck me was listening to receivers coach P.J. Fleck talk about Vincent Jackson. It was impossible to take in what Fleck said without realizing the impact Jackson will have off the field as well as on.
The Bucs' receivers during the past two seasons were, perhaps, the youngest unit on the team. Leadership was practically non-existent.
Along comes Jackson, a proven veteran who was the top free-agent receiver, and there's now hope of bringing some professionalism to a unit that sorely needed it.
"It's fun to watch him work because he's such a good influence on the other guys with how professional he is," Fleck said of Jackson. "He's the first one in line, he's the first one in meetings, he takes incredible notes. His notebook is immaculate. And it says a lot about him. If he keeps doing that, I think he's going to get where he wants to be."
