Jackson Could Still Be The Answer

With Sidney Rice on the PUP list, the Vikings do not have a #1 receiver. 

Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, and Greg Camarillo are all solid receivers, but none appear to be number one material, and all of them have been unreliable to suit up on Sunday’s due to health and injury.

Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports penned an item today stating that the Vikings should go after disgruntled Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson.  The argument makes sense, and let’s face it, acquiring Jackson would put a definitive end to the team’s receiver worries as soon as week four of the regular season.  In fact, they’d likely be set at the position for years and years.

The article points out that Zygi Wilf has taken some criticism from other owners in how he has bowed down to Lord Favre, but that also provides a sense that Wilf isn’t afraid to spend the money needed to bring home the trophy.

Of course the Vikings would love to acquire a talent like Jackson as they prepare to make a run at the Super Bowl.  However, Jackson character, suspension(s), contract demands are all concerns on top of San Diego’s asking price.

    Jackson has to sit for 4 games doesn’t make any sense.
    NFL network is reporting thT.J. Houshmandzadeh is on the block

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 2, 2010 5:28 PM ET
    If trying to trade Michael Clayton was Mission Impossible, consider a possible trade of T.J. Houshmandzadeh its bloated sequel.

    NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that Seattle is trying to move Houshmandzadeh. He also points out that a trade is very unlikely because of Housh’s contract, which contains $7 million guaranteed this season.

    Yes, the Vikings were interested in Houshmandzadeh a year ago. But they drafted Percy Harvin to play the slot and recent acquisition Greg Camarillo is a similar-style player to Housh at a fraction of the price and drama. (Some would argue Camarillo’s skill-level is similar now too.)

    We highly doubt the Seahawks could find any takers for Houshmandzadeh. The question, then: Could the Seahawks simply eat his salary?

    The Seahawks seem oddly determined to keep Deion Branch, but he and Housh are only taking snaps away from young talents Golden Tate, Deon Butler, and Mike Williams.

    We asked whether Housh could be cut on Twitter a few weeks back and ESPN’s Mike Sando thought there was at least a chance.

    That chance, which seemed rather small, appears to be growing.

    UPDATE: Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes it’s believed the Seahawks want to clear salary space to go after Vincent Jackson. Good luck.is and so PFT…..

    Miss spoke on Jackson. Jackson is suspended for 3 game, if not signed by sat. it becomes 6 games.

  3. wtfvikesfan says:

    I meant i misspoke sorry Adam. But Sidney will be back by week six. Don’t gain much.

  4. wtfvikesfan says:
