Vincent Jackson's name has come up as drawing interest from other NFL teams before next week's trade deadline, but the 31-year-old said Thursday he wants to help turn around his team in Tampa Bay.

At 31-years-old, Jackson still has several solid seasons ahead of him. It isn't really up to him whether or not he stays in Tampa Bay, but it is great to see that he preference is to remain there. At this point, all that we know is that there is interest in Jackson, but no formal offers have been made that we know of. Given the landscape of the NFL, it would be surprising if the Buccaneers moved the veteran wideout.

Vincent Jackson said Thursday he is flattered by the trade speculation, but he has heard nothing from the front office about being dealt.

There were rumors earlier in the week that teams were calling the Buccaneers to see if Jackson was valuable and though the Buccaneers said they are not shopping Jackson it appears as if they are taking phone calls. Jackson has been getting a ton targets over the past few weeks but not much to show for it. As the Buccaneers come out of their bye week owners should look for Jackson to have a much better second half.

It's all in the rumor stages, but there are obviously some very favorable landing spots for Jackson. Fantasy Alarm's Michael Stein speculated on the Fantasy Alarm podcast that New England could be a strong possibility as the Patriots look to improve the receiving corps for Tom Brady.

Josh McCown (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

Even when McCown comes back to play for the Bucs, he most likely will be wearing a headset, and not a helmet. Mike Glennon has been somewhat efficient, and they are going to stick with him for the time being.

Dashon Goldson (ankle) practiced on Wednesday.

Goldson is an impact defensive player and should have be in line for a fine day when the Buc's face the offensively challenged Vikings on Sunday.

Buccaneers are fielding offers from several teams with interest in Vincent Jackson.

There was rumor floating around yesterday that the Patriots were involvement in potential talks about Vincent Jackson but the Buccaneers have gone on record to say they are not shopping the veteran receiver. If Jackson were to be traded it would likely be to a contender which can only help his fantasy value.
