    Darrell Jackson

    Jackson had over 900 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games. He has questionable hands but he is a good fit in the west coast offense. Ted Thompson is familar with him and maybe a 2nd day draft pick is enough to get him as Seattle I believe wants to clear up cap.

    Jackson is expected to be on the trading block. Packers and Seahawks have a history of making deals.

    I think this is something to look at.

    If he can't hang onto the ball why should we waste a trade on him?

    I didn't see him have much trouble holding on to the ball. Although I didn't watch the seahawks much.

    Jackson does have a bit of a dropping problem, and doesn't exactly have vertical speed. Not a bad player, though.

    Doesn't he have a tendency to get injured though?

    He is a big time player, when Engram and K-Rob weren't around 2 years ago, D-Jack stepped up (and got me some great fantasy points :D ).

    One name sounds better to me than Jackson or Moss... JOE HORN:) Talented and motivated, plus won't be a long term cap nightmare that Moss or Jackson might be.

    Jackson and Horn are both good receiver. If I had to chose though I'd say Horn.

    1 Driver
    2 Horn
    3 Jennings
    4 Martin

    Andre Rison was a nice acquisition who chipped in at the end of his career, along side of young/unproven reciever Antonio Freeman, who bloomed first-second year

    Driver, Jennings, Horn...this could work a lot, and Horn has height and leaping ability, he'll be a more prevalent end zone target...72 career td's

    Horn wants a big pay day. The only way he'll leave New Orleans is if he can get good market value. I'm not sure at his age if he's worth that. I rather have Jackson or Moss over Horn.

    If Horn can't find good value on the market then he'll probably resign with New Orleans.

    The Saints GM said the door is open. Horn does have a strong connection with the people of that city and the city itself.

    Yeah........but when you criticize the head coach, you don't score any points. He might be resigned, but how much will the coach try to get a little payback on him for his comments?

    Comparing Horn and Jackson, Jackson missed a lot of games 2 years ago due to injury and 3 last year. Horn missed 3 two years ago but missed 6 last year. Jackson is 6 years younger than Horn (35) but does drop about 10 percent of the passes thrown to him.

    Horn's Stats from STATS.com

    Jackson's Stats from STATS.com

    I think Horn's problem may have been more of a youth movement on the Saints. Colston came out big early in the year and Bush covered for him when he got hurt late in the year. Brees seemed to have a better chemistry with the 2 rookies so the "old man" got pushed out.

    Yeah......and Horn is 35? Thats getting up there for a WR. Of course Jerry Rice was pretty good in later years. I just don't know if he would be worth alot of money though.
