How much did the free-agent signing of DeSean Jackson help the Tampa Bay Bucs?
Well, according to Bleacher Report, it vaulted them into the top half of the league.
Bleacher Report did its latest power-rankings Friday, and the Bucs came in at No. 13. Not bad, when you consider that Super Bowl runner-up Atlanta was No. 12.
“There are free-agent signings I really like. And there are free-agent signings I absolutely love,” wrote Chris Simms, the former Bucs’ quarterback.
New England led the Power Rankings at No. 1, which should surprise no one. Following are Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Dallas.
In the NFC South, Carolina was No. 17 and New Orleans was No. 21.
