Vincent Jackson Rumored out of San Diego
Sources report that the San Diego Chargers are not interested in bringing receiver Vincent Jackson back and are ok with letting him enter the free agent market. San Diego has had issues with Jackson over the last few years, most notably his refusal to report two seasons ago. The departure of Jackson, if this is indeed true, leaves San Diego with a big hole to fill in the offense. Expect Malcom Floyd to be resigned very soon in order to preserve some depth in the receiving corps. Some are still saying that he will be signed to a long-term deal, but only time will tell. For now, we play the waiting game. If Jackson is cut, there are three teams that truly stand out to me as a destination for Jackson. St. Louis has a great young quarterback in Sam Bradford, and Jackson would give him a reliable target down the field. Jacksonville also has a young signal caller in Gabbert and the same applies here. To round out the trio, Minnesota finds itself in the same situation. ponder is the future of that team, and with the injury sustained by Adrian Peterson, this team may have to throw the ball more. The intriguing thing about the Vikings is that they do have Percy Harvin on the roster, so they have some flexibility and options to take some pressure off of Jackson, or the other way around. This issue isn't going away any time soon, so stay tuned for further updates.
