    Chambers contract is up after this season, does AJ have the funds to re-sign a guy like that if he plays at a Pro Bowl level this year? And do you feel comfortable having Vjack (who's contract is also up) play #1 reciever with Buster Davis on the otherside next year?

    This is a pretty serious question as Chambers is now a huge part of our offensive scheme to strech the field and take attention off of LT and Gates.

    I think Chambers is the guy being overlooked in all the rash of big signings over the next couple years, but if he leaves we all of a sudden look pretty darn weak at that position again.

    Chambers' contract runs through 2009, so he's not a free agent till after next season.

    It all depends on whether he starts to slow down and how well our young WRs develop.

    I think we'll have the room to sign him. He's an important part of the O here now - don't see AJ letting that slip away.

    Yeah, it depends on our cap room, how well he plays, and how fast younger guys develop.

    Acee has said that the FO likes him and wants to re-sign him, but they are going to see how he plays this year and next, as he is getting older.

    I was certain Chambers contract ran out this season, I guess this thread is a little premature.

    By then, Jackson will be our best WR and so if we resign Chamber, it will be at a big paycut, which i think he will if we continue winning

    I think people look at the season and say, "well, this season ends in 2009, so if a player is under contract through 2009 then his contract must be about to expire."
