2011 Free Agent WRs
 
Who (if any) do you think the Bears should look to sign? Me, I'm thinking Vincent Jackson would look good in Jay Cutler's redemption song.

Here's a link to a nice list of all the FAs out there:

While VJ would be a great match with Cutler, I think he'll be too expensive. James Jones is a guy ready to be a full-time starter who will be cheaper, I think.

What are everyone's thoughts about Plaxico LOL?

I think he'll be like Vick where he'll need a year just to shake off the rust/get back in NFL shape. Maybe 1/2 a year because WR isn't as demanding a position as QB.

I also think it's a horrible idea: Chicago's gun laws are just as tough as NYC's LOL.

I'd be cool with him coming to training camp and getting a look, but he's like 100 years old. I wouldn't even bet five bucks at 10-to-1 odds that he's got a good season left in him.

Sidney Rice as a pipe dream. Ditto for VJ. Braylon Edwards if he comes cheaply. Mike Sims Walker if he can be had for a decent price.

EDIT: On Plax, if he will come here cheaply and with a clause in his contract based around conduct I am all for it.

Vincent Jackson is one failed drug test from a year long suspension. The good news is there are plenty of cab businesses near Lake Forest. Personally, I think he's going to go to Kansas City, as an F you to the Chargers.
James Jones can work, but who else will make costly fumbles against us?

You don't have to request any singing be "cheap." And be a man, if you want to sign a guy, say it. Don't cover your ass by adding "if the price is right" or something. It's not your money, spend it frivolously in our inconsequential thread!

I know we already have his type but certainly not his level so...the numbers Santonio Holmes would put up in this offense would be dastardly. He's someone to look in to.

On one hand I agree with you, but on the other I put those clauses in because that is exactly what I mean. I do not want us to blow all of our cap on a WR that may or may not be what we need to take our offense to the next level. So due to likely financial demands I will go with Mike Sims Walker followed by Plax. If Sidney Rice hits the open market (I doubt it) then we need to at least make a run at him though.

We have to be realistic. I assume there's going to be a salary cap, so we can't just say "the Bears should sign Vincent Jackson for one side of the field, Sidney Rice for the other, and Santonio Holmes in the slot."

So Rice, VJ and I believe one other receiver was given a tag....

No. VJ is the only receiver to have been tagged.
