According to HalasObserver, an inside source within Chicago’s organization via Twitter (http://twitter.com/HalasObserver), Jerry Angelo is seriously considering trading Bears’ newfound receiver Devin Aromashodu and a 2nd round pick for Vincent Jackson, who is due to miss the first four games of the 2010 season.
HalasObserver’ twitter says “Proposed deal for Vincent Jackson: Devin Aromashodu and a 2nd round pick for Vincent Jackson, who is facing a 4 game suspension and a new deal. All internal discussion but Jerry Angelo is thinking hard on this one.”
At the beginning of Chicago’s ink-filled offseason, I produced an article explaining why Lovie and company should attempt a trade for the 2009 Pro Bowler: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/399720-invinceable-2-why-the-chicago-bears-should-trade-for-vincent-jackson
In that article, I predicted the trade would be former first round pick Greg Olsen, a second rounder, and Danieal Manning. Both athletes could be successful in San Diego’s playbooks, but V-Jax’s value has decreased in the Charger’s favor.
Devin Aromashodu is a rising receiver with the size of Jackson and has potential to become a Brandon Marshall type of wide-out.
While many Bears fans cling to the bright future of Aromashodu, Jackson works in the Bears favor more compared to the Chargers in multiple ways.
First, Vincent is a proven gritty, tough, polished receiver. He could thrive easily in Martz’s offense and add goal line versatility with experience to a young core.
The trade may not happen, but if Jerry Angelo pulls the trigger, Chicago’s offense will improve immensely.
If Chicago had a proven threat at wide-out, teams may have the tendency not to blitz as much given the fact there’s even more potential in Martz’s rotation of receivers.
This could be an amazing trade for the Chicago Bears if it works out, so help support the cause and let your voice be heard Bears’ fans!
