I sure as hell hope we don't go after Jackson, spells disaster.

Personally Id rather build from within, see what we've got with a few younger guys. At some point you gotta give them an opportunity.

i understand what your saying, im just going by what Shanahan had said about adding a #1 receiver and how it was a big priority. Out of Garcon, Jackson, and Colston, i would take Jackson. He has been in trouble in the past but i think he has been good for the most part with no problems. He wasnt my first choice but out of what is supposedly left he is the best choice and would make much more of an impact than the other 2. He really goes up and gets the ball.

It depends. Who will be our quarterback? If we truly do end up with RG3, I don't want to commit to an aging WR. If we get stuck with another year of Grossman or some other hopeless QB, Vincent Jackson makes sense.

If we have Grossman, or "some other hopeless QB", the WR position isn't going to matter a hill of beans, because we will be back to seeing protest signs at the games, and fans calling for at least Shanahan's head, and probably everyone else involved.

For the discussion of WR, you have to assume some level of competent qb play, and in that case, bringing in a #1, regardless of age (not over 33 i guess) is a must. This is the year the offense needs to be addressed, and addressed in bunches, new qb, solid WR corps, and better RT. Some how, all three of those needs must be met.

VJax seems like a simple plan A for the WR part.

I'm on board with VJ, but I also wouldn't mind Garcon.

Buffalo Bills, Stevie Johnson agree to 5-year deal, according to source - ESPN


Looks like one WR is off the FA market. Bills sign Stevie Johnson.

Garcon has had injury problems hasn't he? I really like Colston. VJ is good, but I don't like his baggage and Shanny seems to like character guys. Or who at least he thinks are character guys.

Not that I'm aware of, he's started all but 5 games the past 3 seasons, certainly no injuries to the extent like Colston has had that's for sure.
