There’s a lot of debate — in and outside of One Buc Place — about the future of DeSean Jackson in Tampa Bay.

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has weighed in, and it’s clear he wants No. 11 to not only survive but also thrive, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

On Friday, Winston responded to a link of a story on Twitter by Times writer Thomas Bassinger with the headline “What are the Buccaneers going to do with DeSean Jackson?”

Jackson, 31, is in the second year of a three-year, $33.5 million contract, with $20 million of that guaranteed. He is due to make $11 million this season, $7.5 million of which is guaranteed.

In part because Winston struggled to throw the deep ball, the investment in Jackson didn’t pay off in 2017. He finished with 50 catches for 668 yards and three touchdowns. His 13.4 yards per catch average was the lowest of his career.
