...could be cut according to Adam Schefter


Chad Jackson, WR, New England Patriots: He could wind up being cut as easily as landing on the PUP.

I know threads created about released players who we should pick up are common, but this guy would really be worth picking up. Ultimately, I think the Patriots will put him on PUP and not cut him because they invested too much in him by trading up and Moss and Stallworth may not even be back next year. Schefter is one of the most reliable sources though so it's worth paying attention to.

He likely won't be playing this year either way. The patriots will most likely put him on IR for the season.

There is no way they cut their number two pick from just a year ago unless he had career ending injury.

He was a 2nd round pick, who they traded up (one spot ahead of us) to draft. I know it's odd, but remember that New England is deep at WR, and this stuff is coming from Schefter, so it has merit.

I realized my mistake and I fixed. Nevertheless the Pasties still have quite a bit invested in him I just can't them cutting unless injury is a career ender.

how would a failure at wr be worth picking up? dude can't even stay healthy , plus he's a wr from the university of florida....those usually suck really bad in the nfl

It's too early to call him a failure after only one season. He has the potential to be very good, despite his UF lineage, so to speak.

I can't think of any Universities that are wide receiver factories for the N.F.L.

Nevertheless the bigger picture is that he's had trouble staying healthy. As far as I know Denver have any interest in him last year.

Not even worth the time at this point. He is hurt we need guys that can play this year. With Brandon Marshall starting to live up to his potential. and Javon being the number one. and with a solid number three option in Brandon Stokely. its not worth the roster spot. We have a few holes on this team that i think it would be more wise to fill for the team THIS year. The guy has played little football in the alst couple of years. He will be picked up just not by denver..

I wasnt a bifg fan of drafting him last year in the first and i am glad we didnt.

Any team with Randy Moss should think long and hard before cutting WR's....

Even if he wasn't hurt and the Pasties cut him now he would be useless to us. There is no way he could pick up enough the offense to make any kind of contribution.

I agree with TX, it'd be like the whole David Terrell thing. Pick up a guy, have him sit the whole year and learn the system.

Couldn't be more happy that New England decided to trade up ahead of us and get Jackson, and we landed Walker. I don't think we could have asked for a better scenario.

He will be scooped up rather quickly if he does get axed. He hasn't really had a chance to show what he can do in this league, and some team desperate for a receiver like the Titans is a potential landing spot for him.

Dream, you're right to compare acquiring him to acquiring Terrell but the difference is Terrell had several seasons to become the player he was supposed to be in Chicago. Jackson has had 1 season, and has battled injury that season as well as the entire offseason.

New England has some ridiculous depth at WR though with Moss, Stallworth, Welker, Jackson, Caldwell, Gaffney, Kelley Washington, Troy Brown, etc. Honestly anyone of those guys would be a welcome addition to the Broncos IMO. I don't really like our WR depth, but that's just me.

Shanahan is always going to keep the end-of-the-roster scrubs like Brian Clark instead of trying to develope players like Reggie Williams and Chad Jackson.

The David Terrell experiment was the exception to the rule.....

I'm not so sure about their depth being as great as some think. They only have one guy who has shown he can consistently beat a solid corner one on one in the last couple seasons. And, that guy get's hurt easily. When you look at Moss, who can say what exactly they will get. All of those other guys are consistent, at best, in the slot. Chad Jackson has a lot of potential, and if they were smart, would be utilized as a deep threat this year.

I for one would think it may be a good investment to give him a chance if he is axed. Think about it, he was sposed to be a 1st rounder last year (or supposedly) and was the second best wideout in that draft, granted it was a weak draft but if he was a free agent after only his second season we may get a steal just by giving him a chance.... no doubt he has talent.

i dont think clark is a scrub . . . where do you come up with that, he performed very well while i was at training camp, and has had solid, not great, but solid preseason games

the guy hasnt even caught 1 pass in an NFL game and your calling him a scrub. . . . i agree with you on most things i feel (like you sig lol) but give him a chance to at least play before calling him a scrub

mind you that rod was an UDFA as well . . . disclaimer: i am not way, shape, or form saying that brian clark is as good as rod smith or, that he is worse than rod smith, for all we know he could be terrible, but just as likely he could be great

just keep an open mind, i read on the denver website that he is a very hard worker and is always talking to smith about what to improve on or do different


but back to the tread topic . . . . NO:coffee:

Of course you don't! You're a good fan.

But to me, Denver can't even develope the WR's they draft in the 1st/2nd/3rd round, so I'm gonna go with the "Believe it when I see it" approach to some dude they signed off the streets.

I'm jaded.

All I'm saying in that post is that Clark is the typical Shanahan "project" (that likely won't be around for long) not the Claytons/Williams/Jacksons.

And it's funny you should mention Rod Smith because it's my opinion that Shanahan is perpetually trying to catch the Rod Smith Lightening In A Bottle again.....

Yup. He blew out his knee in the AFCCG and wont play at all this season, says my source who works for the Patriots on the sidelines.

Oh...maybe he won't be utilized as a deep threat. Maybe they could give him one of those Power Chairs for senior citizens, and use him in the slot on third down. That way Patriots fans have another excuse when Brady ends another season with an interception.

Yet again, thank goodness I am not the GM. I wanted Jackson in the worst way in the draft. He looked like crap last year and now he'll miss a significant portion of the season (if the PUP report is correct). Let's see, Javon or Chad Jackson, let me think, um, Javon.

Because he doesn't have a known-name?

I don't think Rod was known league-wide when he got signed.....

...but Lelie sure was heralded.:P
