Vincent Jackson talking contract with Seahawks

There could finally be some movement on the Vincent Jackson front. According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports , the Seattle Seahawks have been given permission to discuss contract terms with the star receiver. This suggests that a trade could be on the horizon. V. Jackson (US Presswire)

The Seahawks say they have talked to Chargers general manager A.J. Smith about trade compensation for Jackson. If Jackson gets his way, a new contract would likely be in the neighborhood of $9 million per season. Jackson would instantly become the No. 1 receiver in Seattle, relegating T.J. Houshmandzadeh to a more-fitting underneath role and allowing second-round rookie Golden Tate to assume the slot duties.

The Dolphins’ acquisition of Brandon Marshall from Denver will likely set the bar here. Miami gave up two second-round picks for Marshall (one in 2010, another in 2011).

Jackson’s holdout stems from his displeasure with being tendered as a restricted free agent. Jackson refused to sign the one-year tender of $3.268 million by June 15. The Chargers reduced the one-year tender to $583,000, which only widened the gap between the player and team.

As a Chargers fan, I honestly don't care.  I sort of welcome the trade actually as long as we receive decent enough value.  Jackson may have been the number 1 receiver but he was still the 3rd target on offense.  I expected Malcolm Floyd to have a breakout year even before Jackson's holdout so I now expect even more from Floyd. 

I honestly don't know why the Chargers aren't getting more credit for their offseason moves.  They won 13 games last year and made their team better.  The only real loss will be Mcneil if he stays away and even then...how big of a loss is that really?

Not sure how Jacskon burns the Chargers on Sept 26th since Vincent Jackson will not be playing in the game because he will be serving his 3-game suspension.

Or did that fact escape you?

Are you even aware how he got the suspension? Are you aware of ANY of Jackson's baggage? Or would you prefer to simply call us idiots for stating the facts? You may want to do a little background check on the guy before you make such bold prognostications. Good luck with him if you get him!

cowhawker~

It will be a little difficult for Jackson to burn the Chargers on September 26th since he will be suspended for the first four games of the season because of his DUI's.  I will admit that I will miss Vincent Jackson, but I think the Chargers will be fine without him.  Anyways, Marcus McNeill is the more important for the Chargers and if Jackson is gone they can focus more on extending him, hopefully.  I just hope the Chargers get good compensation from the Seahawks for Jackson, two 2nd rounders or a 1st and late round pick would be nice.

Goto receiver? The guy had 1 touchdown all year, and the only game he had more than 4 catches was the last game of the regular season, and that was because the division was clinched and the regulars rested. Great analysis.

Hardly. Our starting receiver is Malcom Floyd. I've wanted VJ gone since the the Jets game last year. He got himself aressted the morning of the game and then behaved like a ten year old during the game. Good luck with him. I hope he does well for you.

VJ isn't even smart enough to keep the registration on his car current. You know, the one he drives around after he gets drunk in the clubs every night. The Sea Chickens and the Donkey will both be sittin' on the couch come playoff time. The Super Charger will go deep into the playoffs and possibly make the big show.

I think it would be incredible if they traded Jackson to the Seahawks. I mean, look at all the other receivers the Bolts have to take his place. It's easy to replace a guy that was 10th in yards, 10th in receiving TD's and was behind only DeSean Jackson in yards per catch isn't it? Maybe it's time for that jackass A.J. Smith to start treating people like human beings and grow up. Reducing his tender because he has the audacity to not take what you give him and be thankful for it. As a Broncos fan I'd love to see him in a different division, or in a Broncos uniform, but as a fan of the game I think it's ridiculous to not make an actual attempt to sign him long-term to keep Rivers and that offense going for years.
