A lot of big name wide receivers are going to be hitting the free agent market. Some of those names are: Marques Colston, Reggie Wayne, Brandon Lloyd, Wes Welker, Stevie Johnson, DeSean Jackson, Plaxico Burress, Mario Manningham, and Vincent Jackson. Now look who is at the end of that list Vincent Jackson. The Bolts need to find a way to keep him and resign him. They can’t let him go to another team. He is vital to the passing game as we all know. Now out of this list I agree with this article saying he will command a lot of money since he is a top receiver still in his prime and get the most interest from teams wanting to add him to their roster. Now we are all hoping the Chargers give him a good deal that he will be happy with and can get back to football.
We all know he has had some off the field issues and his contract holdout that shouldn’t have happened which makes this situation a little more questionable on whether he will stay or go. Though the team and owner have said they believe in continuity right now, this will be big in seeing if they keep that intact. I know Rivers can get great play out of the backups behind the starting wide outs but there is something more with Jackson. He and Jackson work so well on the field it is fun to watch. I’m sure Rivers has already told them that he would like them to keep Jackson.
As fans, we want Jackson to stay in Lightning Bolts because who wants to see him have a breakout season next year for another team? Like we’ve seen with a lot of former Bolts who didn’t get resigned to new contracts. This would be a great start for AJ to show us fans that he is true in saying he will do things a little different in some areas since he’s been with the Bolts. Resign Jackson please! He has proved himself on the field countless times.
