NFL free agency started with a flurry yesterday as Brandon Marshall was traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Chicago Bears for two 3rd round draft picks right at 4pm. Adding Marshall to the list of WR’s making moves this offseason helps make WR’s the most coveted free agents this year. The #1 WR on the free agent list was Vincent Jackson and he found a new home with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers late last night. Jackson signed a 5-year, $55.5 million with the bucs and will instantly become Josh Freeman‘s #1 receiver.
Jackson put up solid numbers in his seven seasons with the San Diego Chargers, including racking up 1,000+ yds and 7+ td’s two of the last three years. The combination of Jackson, Mike Williams and TE Kellen Winslow gives Freeman plenty of big play receivers to throw too. According the Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Bucs have also landed free agent CB Eric Wright from the Detroit Lions, who was seen as one of the best available CB’s. The Bucs are making a big splash in the fir...

Free agency did not begin auspiciously for the Chargers, who saw arguably their second-best player, Vincent Jackson, depart for the Buccaneers. Since then, A.J. Smith has used the money he saved via the Jackson no-deal to reel in three outside free agents and ensure his offensive line returns intact. Suddenly, the negative air in So Cal is dissipating.

When the news of Brandon Marshall being traded to the Chicago Bears for two third round picks broke (1 in 2012 and 1 in 2013), it seemed to me that the Dolphins were throwing away Marshall. He hadn’t been with the team that long, the Dolphins had traded two second round picks to acquire him [...]
