08:06 AM ET 03.06 | With each day, Vincent Jackson gets a little closer to finding out his market value. The Chargers have a number in mind for Jackson that likely includes a finite amount of wiggle room. But they have given away their leverage. Jackson is now available to 31 other teams, and as many as eight of them are considered serious suitors. While league sources in recent weeks have said the receiver market won't be as lucrative as Jackson might hope, even the Chargers know there is at least one team out there that is expected to push the market for Jackson. Also, it is believed the Buffalo Bills remain interested in Jackson despite signing Stevie Johnson to a five-year, $36.25 million deal on Monday.

Tom Brady! If the Pats get bold this year.

A possibility which has already been thought of in Patriot Nation, I'm sure.

I'm guessing, though, that V-Jax will go for the big-dollar, multi-year contract. The Pats aren't going to even try to win a bidding war with a team that will overpay this guy.

I don't see the Pats throwing stupid money at this guy.

Mario Williams would be bold.

Dude, San Diego or Buffalo...Buffalo or San Diego...seriously???
Close your eyes and think of "winter."

I'd go after Manningham or Wallace and leave V-Jax to the kind of poorly-run team that will give him the big payday he wants.

This guy is gonna get a lot of money. The Skins are 40 mil under the salary cap. Gimme Laurent Robinson & Colston. I'd be happy.

I think overpay is the operative term here.

Actually, it's time for a new belt.

I wouldn't be disappointed if we got him
But I'd rather spend the big money on Mario if we can get him if not give a lot less money to Meachem/Lloyd/Wayne or somebody along those lines. Don't want VJack or Wallace that much

Why is there no mention of the Bears here. That would be a nice fit - we got the cap room to do it too :]
