Vincent Jackson Expected To Be Pursued By Bears, Bucs And Redskins

Free agent wide receiver Vincent Jackson is expected to get a lot of interest from teams once free agency starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday. Some of the teams expected to be big players for Jackson include the Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bears plan to be serious contenders for Jackson's services, according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Bears, Bucs and Redskins are thought to be the most aggressive bidders for two-time Pro Bowl receiver Vincent Jackson. According to a league source, the Bucs have the inside track to land Jackson, with the Bears among the serious suitors who might come up short.

The two-time Pro Bowler is finally hitting free agency after receiving the franchise tag last offseason, and Jackson is coming off a 60 catch, 1,106 receiving yards and nine touchdown season in 2011. As Jensen mentions, Jackson will be in high demand in free agency and will likely garner a pretty massive contract.
