Vincent Jackson is one of the old dependable players in the league having played the game for 12 years. Many are saying that he should be on his way to retirement and enjoy what he have already accomplished. But latest news is saying that he doesn't intend to hang up his sneakers yet and now linking him to the Los Angeles Rams as his possible destination next season.
Vincent Jackson was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round of 2005 NFL Draft. He is the highest ever selected football player coming from Northern Colorado college. He played for the Chargers for seven years before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012. From there, he established a name for himself and registered decent figures.
On the other hand, the Los Angeles Rams had a dismal performance last season. They could only muster four wins out of sixteen games and settled on the fourteenth spot of the NFC division. Part of their breakdown is their lackluster offense which is ranked 32nd both in total points scored (14.0) and total yards gained (262.7). Now, recent reports are suggesting that Vincent Jackson could be help on that area.
According to Rams Wire, the Los Angeles Rams should consider of signing free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson and bolster their offense next season. He will bring the height of being a wide out and the vast experience of a reliable runner in the field. His estimated market value is around $4.6 million which is quite affordable for the Rams.
In twelve season in the league, Vincent Jackson has registered 540 excellent reception for 9,080 yards and 57 touchdowns. He was also selected to the Pro Bowl three times and was able to exceed the 1,000 receiving yards six time in his whole career. At the age of 34, many believe that he still has the skills to contribute to any team and he might be what the Los Angeles Rams is looking for.
