Dolphins work out, could sign Chad Jackson

The Dolphins have just concluded a workout with recently waived receiver Chad Jackson, according to The Herald's Jeff Darlington.

Jackson is awaiting word from the team and his agent whether he will be signed.

Jackson, you might recall, was the former second-round pick of the Patriots in 2006 out of the University of Florida. He obviously fizzled in New England and was not picked up on waivers because no teams wanted to take on his four-year contract.

Jackson has obviously not lived up to his draft pedigree. He has played 14 games in two seasons and caught 13 passes for 152 yards -- despite the fact the Patriots are so pass-happy.

"I think Chad is a good football player and I am sure he will play for somebody," New England coach Bill Belichick said when Jackson was cut. "It wouldn’t surprise me if he played real well. It just didn’t work out here, this year, at this point in time. I don’t know any other way to put it."

Jackson is a specimen. He is 6-1 and 215 pounds and can run like a tropical storm force wind.

The Dolphins, with obvious receiver issues, might want to take him on now that the original contract is no longer an issue. Even if he is signed, Jackson would not play for Miami against the Jets Sunday.

I thought Peter Warrick was the best receiver I had ever seen out of college... damn

Signing Chad Jackson would be a worthwhile gamble, this receiving group is awful. Jackson is no guarantee to succeed, but the potential upside is too good to pass up. Can it get worse than this weak group of receivers? Besides Ginn, the entire group is waiver wire material - so why not try to catch lightning in a bottle.

Didn't know you were the official blog police Tinshaker. Watch out, David Boston is there, surely you can arrest him for something.

Dolphins need more Chads
