If the Chargers do indeed trade Vincent Jackson, expect the disgruntled receiver to go to either the Redskins or Seahawks. This is according to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.
Jackson spent time this past offseason working out with Donovan McNabb in Arizona. The Redskins have no viable wideout aside from Santana Moss (dinosaur Joey Galloway is actually getting first team reps right now). They’re reportedly disenchanted with third-year receivers Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas. Both players lack downfield speed and quick change-of-direction, which, factored with their remedial coverage reading abilities, makes “getting open” a challenge.
The Seahawks come up whenever any star receiver is on the market. That could be because T.J. Houshmandzadeh is, deep down, more of a No. 2. Seattle actually has decent receiver depth, though. Deon Butler is expected to be better; Deion Branch is serviceable in the slot; and back in spring, coaches were giddy about the catch-and-run prowess of second-round rookie Golden Tate.
All this said, there’s still no guarantee that Chargers GM A.J. Smith will give in and trade Jackson.
