No offense meant, but I think in this day and age of social media, everything an agent hears or says needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Teams sometimes float offers/rumors to agents knowing they will get circulated to distract other teams from a player that they really want. It's all part of a game that gets played out, so it's tough to be certain any rumor is true, until there are sources citing a signing. Until then, it's just generating market buzz.

Oh I know. Rumors are rumors. Meant to generate discussion. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

Also, it's like a 4 day old rumor.

About time we have a good receiver. Not the #1 we were hoping for, but still a good pickup. Hopefully those draft picks don't come back to bite us if we have trouble the rest of free agency picking up the pieces we need. Good to see something happen though.

3rd rounders are in consecutive seasons, so they still have 1 this year.

He's the #1 I would have opened for! Have you watched the guy play? He's a BEAST with the ball. He plays hard and is an amazing WR. LOVE THIS.

The best part is, we don't spend a sick amount of money on V-Jax. Now lets fill some other holes!

(I believe, we also had 2 3rd rounders to spare, one from the Greg Olsen trade)

EDIT - I see your correction and understand what you meant.

That's debatable but better situation for the Bears. Cutler and Marshall know each other and you don't spend a ton of money to acquire Jackson.

Not sure what Marshall's cap hit is with sign on bonus removed, ect. Marshall was not great in Miami but that team was a mess.

He had 86 and 81 catches and 1,000 and 1,200 yards with no one throwing to him. Not terrible
