First and 10: Let’s go shopping for WRs

How’d you like to see Vincent Jackson catching passes for your team? Maybe Sidney Rice? In Thursday’s edition of Instant Debate,’s experts look at the top potential free agent wide receivers that will be on the market when the lockout is lifted. Jackson and Rice are two of the names mentioned, but they are by no means the only ones. Which ones do you prefer?

Speaking of receivers, Bills pass-catcher Stevie Johnson was in the NFL Network studios on Wednesday. He had a lot to say in this Q&A, from Twitter to his infamous drop in last season’s Steelers game to whether it’s Stevie or just Steve.

Oh, and Johnson was kind enough to lend NFL Network’s Rich Eisen some “swag.”

Johnson helped the “Total Access” crew address the Bills during the show’s “32 Teams in 32 Days” segment. Thursday’s “32 Teams in 32 Days” turns its attention to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals selected wide receiver A.J. Green and quarterback Andy Dalton with their first two picks in the NFL draft. There’s a good bet the discussion will focus on those two but also get into veteran QB Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco.

For a primer before tonight’s Bengals segment, you might want to check out this story from, in which coach Marvin Lewis vows the team will have a new look in 2011 – “and I think one the fans are going to enjoy.”

And speaking of that Ochocinco guy, you did hear what he’s doing this weekend, right?
