Steelers finalizing five-year deal with Jackson
By John Clayton
ESPN.com

The Steelers were finalizing a five-year deal Monday night to sign Super Bowl MVP Dexter Jackson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Terms of Jackson's contract are close to the five-year, $12.25 million deal the Falcons signed with safety Cory Hall last week. The Bucs wanted to re-sign Jackson but they could only offer between $1 million and $1.5 million because of the salary cap.

For Jackson, the final bidding came down to the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cardinals were first to offer in the $2.4 million-a-year range. The Steelers arrived at that number on Monday, giving Jackson a choice.

That's a big chunk of change to give up!! And Pitt I think is not

that far away from the SHOW!! Also he has a chance to prove he

was not just a by-product of the Bucs D!! ;-D I think it's a great

move ofr the Steelers!!

Jackson should do well in Pitt. I think he is more than a product of the system and he is a big step up from Flowers
