Chad Jackson may start for Buffalo

The Bills are looking for a receiver to start opposite Lee Evans. Terrell Owens, of course, filled that role in the offseason, but he hasn't been re-signed.
The Bills have used draft picks on receivers in recent years, most notably James Hardy in the second round in 2008. They also selected Steve Johnson that year.
But an article at Fox Sports indicates that Chad Jackson could start ahead of both of those guys.
Jackson, recall, is the former Florida receiver that Bill Belichick selected with the 36th pick of the draft back in 2006. He didn't make much of an impact as a rookie, then tore his ACL in the AFC Championship game that year, which also set him back in 2007. The Patriots released him after training camp in 2008.
Since then, Jackson has cycled around, having tryouts with various teams. He was active for four games with Denver in 2008, and he didn't even get on the field last year. But with Buffalo hurting at wide receiver, he may wind up being a starter for them.
