I have never seen Vincent Jackson as a franchise type wide receiver, but considering what the Bears currently have he would be an upgrade.
I would still draft at minimum two receivers, but for a team that needs to win now, Jackson could be a prudent move.
According to sources, the Chicago Bears prefer Vincent Jackson over their other options. That does not mean that the Bears won’t be targeting Wide Receivers early in the NFL Draft. In a perfect world, the Bears would like to add multiple Receivers this off season.
The Bears have over $20 Million set aside for Free Agency.
That may not be enough for Jackson. By my count, sixteen teams in the league are going to be actively pursuing a starting Wide Receiver this off season.
There is no word on where Vincent Jackson would prefer to end up; but Chicago has to be one of the most intriguing options.
