08:21 AM ET 07.01 | There is no question Vincent Jackson would fit in the Bears' offense. But for now, the Chargers receiver is not an option. A source familiar with the Bears' thinking told the Tribune on Wednesday the team has no plans to pursue a trade for Jackson at this time. Strings attached to Jackson -- compensation and a new contract -- are factors the Bears do not want to burden themselves with a month before training camp.

Translation: His DUI troubles are scaring us away.

That DUI thing also makes him a lot less appealing....

I guess you could say he's not as bad as Stallworth. And besides, the Bears desperately need a wide receiver.

Agreed, I hear the Bears are also not approaching Joe Theismann for a veteran QB backup.

In 1867, Canada got its independence from England. They just politely asked for it instead of going to war for it. It just took the Brits longer to respond.

Jackson's Agent must be working overtime... With all these stories about Vincent...

You'd think we were talking about Jerry Rice in his prime...

He is a good WR in a pass First system... You take him out of that system (like with the Bears) and he becomes an average receiver...

Where the hell was this going?

Another one of the "strings" that Chicago doesn't want to deal with. As Chitown's Finest mentioned, there are too many people who have a lot riding on this season.

the bears don't care about getting wr's with any talent
