Morning Dump

A few big-name wide receivers are scheduled to be free agents this offseason, including Wes Welker, DeSean Jackson, and Reggie Wayne. And because of that, another fella will likely be hitting the market when the free-agent window opens on March 13: San Diego Chargers vet Vincent Jackson.

Even after Eric Weddle had seven interceptions, made the Pro Bowl and was named All-Pro, there was an acknowledgment by the Chargers decision makers that they overpaid to some extent to re-sign the safety last summer.

The rumor mill is reporting via Jason LaCanfora that the San Diego Chargers will not franchise tag wide receiver Vincent Jackson, and he will likely test the market. LaCanfora went on further to confirm the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers as the strongest candidates out of all the potential suitors out there. From where I’m sitting, it seems like this is just the man the 49ers are looking for and I’ll tell you why.
