After 12 seasons, Vincent Jackson officially hung up his cleats and called it a career on Friday.

A former second-round pick of the Chargers in 2005, the wide receiver spent seven seasons with the Bolts earning Pro Bowl honors in 2009 and 2011.  He spent the final five years of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he made his third Pro Bowl appearance in 2012.  He leaves the game with 540 catches for 9,080 yards and 57 touchdowns.

Known for his skills as one of the best deep threats, Jackson amassed 272 receptions for 4,754 yards (17.5 yards per reception) during his time with the Chargers, ranking ninth on the team’s all-time receiving yards list.  Additionally, from 2005-2011, he posted 14 regular season games with at least 100 receiving yards.  He finished his Bolts career with 37 receiving touchdowns, tied with Anthony Miller for the seventh-most in team history.
