I think they are looking for a guy who can potentially take over as the starter. Some of the team's better players are getting older and their window to do any damage may be closing. I'd guess internally they will root for Jackson to step up and take the job again, but if he falters they're going to want a solid contingency plan. Rosenfels would offer that and I do not think they would be throwing around a relatively high draft pick if they weren't serious about giving him an opportunity to take the starters role.
