Vincent Jackson is now available to play in week 5 if he is traded. Here are the rumored teams that are interested in him:
Minnesota Vikings: The Minnesota Vikings’ leading receiver, Sidney Rice, is out for a couple of months and Brett Favre needs a reliable target. Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian showed nothing in Week 1 and they had trouble braking away from coverage. The Vikings are supposed to be a Super Bowl contender, but it looks like they are missing the go-to wide receiver. This team would be dangerous offensively with the addition of Jackson in the lineup. They already have one of the best running backs in Adrian Peterson and a legendary quarterback in Favre.
St. Louis Rams: Why wouldn’t they be interested? They were the worst team in the league last year and anything would be an upgrade to what they already have. He would add to the young core that they are trying to build with number 1 pick, Sam Bradford, and running back Steven Jackson. It would be a huge boost to their offense and would get them one step closer to remaking “The Greatest Show on Turf.”
Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks have Mike Williams as their number 1 receiver! Who? Mike Williams enjoyed a great college career with Pete Carroll and is hoping to shine again under coach Carroll. We ripped them off in the offseason with a trade giving them Charlie Whitehurst and we hope to rip them off again.
Washington Redskins: Vincent Jackson worked out with Donovan McNabb in the off-season and they already have a relationship with each other. Donovan loves to go deep and Jackson would be the perfect target for him.
San Diego Chargers: Antonio Gates was double and triple teamed last week and would benefit having Vincent Jackson back. The other receivers on the team are still young and not established. I am sure that Philip would love to have him back also. Jackson will probably choose to sit out the season before signing the contract that the Chargers are offering him.
Where do you think that he will end up?
