WR, wide-open market for D.J. Hackett

Posted by Danny O'Neil

D.J. Hackett is headed to free agency. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are projected to have more than $40 million in salary-cap space. Washington doesn't have much in the way of salary-cap space, but it does have a new head coach, Jim Zorn, with a whole lot of familiarity with Hackett.

Combine that with all the productivity Hackett has shown when he is on the field and that's sure to raise some team's interest. He steadily moved up the depth chart from 2005 when he caught 28 passes for 400 yards in a year when he started out No. 5 on the depth chart to last year when he was a starter, but played in just six games because of an ankle injury.

The Football Outsiders broach the question of what to expect from Hackett's production in the future by looking at other players who put together similar type production as Hackett. Their conclusion: "The upside for Hackett is probably not stardom, but instead a long career as a possession receiver, similar to Ike Hilliard." Here's the link to that story.

DJ's outlook should have been done by a Dr., not Football Outsider. The guy has missed more games than he has played. No thanks. Like caineman many of those guys doese one franchise need?
