With Plaxico Burress searching for a new home, he could end up right back where he started from. The Steelers and Giants are both reportedly interested in his services.
When it’s all said and done, and the franchise-tag deadline arrives March 5, I can’t help but think that WR Vincent Jackson isn’t leaving the Chargers.

With Mario Manningham expected to hit free agency, the Giants could consider a number of options for what has become a rather productive No. 3 receiver position.

Vincent Jackson might be running an out route away from San Diego, but it’s hard to envision him landing in a spot with a better quarterback than he has now.

Now that the countdown to Super Bowl XLVI has officially begun, some of the attention is off Rob Gronkowski’s ankle and turning toward Ahmad Bradshaw’s foot.
While reports suggest A.J. Smith now is “comfortable” exploring a long-term deal for Vincent Jackson, the Chargers wide receiver said he has yet to speak to the general manager himself.
Speaking at Tuesday the Pro Bowl news conference, Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie said the state “will do everything we can” to keep the NFL’s all-star game, a notion heavily supported by players on hand.

Late game observations Tim Tebow doesn’t throw it often and doesn’t throw it particularly well. But when he does throw it, he’s throwing it to Eric Decker. Since Tebow became the starter, Decker has 15 catches for 261 yards and four touchdowns. Broncos receivers don’t have much value, but if you’re going to start one, it should be Decker. Of all the unwritten fantasy rules, here’s one more: Start Ryan Mathews against the Broncos. Mathews ran for 137 yards Sunday, his third career 100-yard game. All of them have come against Denver. Is there any receiver as frustrating as Vincent Jackson? For as talented as he is, the big wideout has had a maddening tendency to disappear in games. While he […]
Willis McGahee runs wild with one hand, Vincent Jackson exploding for three touchdowns and, of course, shanahanigans all conspired to drive fantasy owners to distraction in this week’s edition of Fantasy Faux Pas Monday.
