2012 NFL Free Agents: 11 Teams That Could Sign Vincent Jackson

With the impending departure of receiver Vincent Jackson from the Chargers, it leads to an important question...

Where will he go and how much will his contract be?

Of course, we can only speculate at this point and Jackson has repeatedly told the Chargers' front office that he wants a long-term deal, not a franchise tag.

I'm guessing he's going to sign a five-to-six-year deal worth $7-9 million per season.

Jackson definitely has all the tools to become a great receiver by joining a list that includes Calvin Johnson Jr., Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson.

However, Jackson showed to be one of the most inconsistent receivers in all of football last season.

For instance, to begin the season, Jackson registered receiving numbers of 31, 172, 63 and 108. There was also another four-game stretch in which the receiver accumulated 141, 22, 165 and 25 yards, respectively.

Jackson also did not have a single 100-yard game over the last six games of the season.

The point I'm trying to make here is that it wasn't fun having him on two of my fantasy teams.

Regardless of his inconsistencies, Jackson is still a top-notch receiver in the NFL and is undoubtedly a Pro Bowl-caliber player. If he can land in the right system, Jackson could improve on his career numbers.
