Here are the top 10 choices for wide receiver in 2012 free agency. 1. DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia Eagles) Is DeSean Jackson more trouble than he is worth? The jury still may be out but after causing a fiasco with the Eagles last season it could be the end of the road in Philly. The problem for the Eagles is that they don’t have anyone else to take his place. For a number of years the Eagles struggled at the WR position and now that they finally have someone worth something are they going to turn around and let that go?

Steve Johnson already has gone on the record stating he'd like to be back in Buffalo next season. On Monday, Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick passionately stated the case for why Buffalo should re-sign his favorite target.
If Ryan Fitzpatrick would have scored a rushing touchdown he might as well should have lifted his shirt with "Bring Stevie Back" written on it.

New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum was non-committal on Monday about whether or not soon-to-be free agent Plaxico Burress will be back in 2012. Burress ended up having a pretty solid season despite all of the issues the Jets had on offense. He finished the year with 45 receptions for 612 yards and 8 touchdowns. “He [...]

Could anyone have predicted that the Chicago Bears would finish 2011 with an 8-8 record and on the outside looking in of the NFL playoffs? Yep. I did. The Bears came into the season with question marks on the offensive line and at wide receiver. Oddly enough, those were some of the same questions that plagued them throughout 2010 and little was done in the abbreviated...

Mike Tannenbaum was less certain about Plaxico Burress. “He’s really an interesting guy…
