The media’s behind it, the fans appear to support the idea, so I guess it’s just up to Phil Emery to make it happen. Obviously, that’s easier said than done considering the number of teams that will be pursing him in the coming weeks.
McClure also mentioned that they would also consider Lions DE Cliff Avril but he was franchised by Detroit earlier in the day.
Jackson seems like an obvious target for Chicago and many of our readers seem to believe that it’s a foregone conclusion. The interest will obviously be there but it will ultimately come down to market factors. The Redskins, Rams, Jaguars, Buccaneers and Vikings have all be suggested as possible options so it will be one of the more interesting story lines of the offseason.
