"It's an area we need to address, obviously," Jackson said last week, via the team's official website. "I've gone on record before saying that I like to have bigger, faster guys play the position."
Executive vice president Sashi Brown expressed a similar sentiment, acknowledging the Browns' roster is lacking in big, physical receivers capable of making contested catches and moving the chains on third downs.
