An Interesting Note About A Washout Receiver
It is a widely held belief that last year the New England Patriots managed to acquire Randy Moss for a song, and that the Packers should have made the move to get him and were out-maneuvered by the crafty Pats.
However, did you know...
Compounding the error is the fact that Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli moved up in round two to get [Chad] Jackson, giving up a second-round pick and a third-rounder to land Jackson.
The picks went to the Packers. And though the Pats deserve credit for not clinging to a mistake in order to avoid admitting that a mistake had been made, the Packers drafted with that second-round pick from the Patriots a receiver named Greg Jennings.
Maybe you’ve heard of him. One thing that’s looking likely at this point is that you won’t be hearing much of anything from Chad Jackson in 2008, or ever.
