We’re only surprised that every NFL team isn’t considering making a run at Vincent Jackson.
The Chargers sound oddly open to dealing the big play threat, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter has identified at least three teams discussing going after Jackson. We knew about the Redskins and Seahawks. Schefter adds the Bears to the mix.
The Bears talked all offseason about how much they love their receiver group, but Jay Cutler could use a physical, alpha dog to throw to. That’s where the union stops making sense.
Jackson doesn’t fit the profile of a typical Mike Martz receiver and Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo said previously he’s out of the business of trading away future draft picks.
Jackson will inevitably cost a high pick or two in addition to another monster contract. Angelo and Lovie Smith are going for broke in what could be their last year together, but doesn’t ownership draw the line financially somewhere?
