The Mother ship that is SBNation runs down all the potential free agent wide outs that are now linked to be staying with their old teams. This is not good news for Bears fans hoping for a big WR splash.

Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network has reported that sources close to Vincent Jackson expect him to receive the franchise tag.

Speculation has Marques Colston staying in New Orleans and Dwayne Bowe remaining a Chief.

Would a consolation prize of Stevie Johnson, Laurent Robinson, or Pierre Garcon do anything for you? SBN runs down all the potential WRs that should be available; Who do you think the Bears will pursue?
