    VJ will not play for the Chargers this year, if he doesn't lower his contract demands it' unlikely he'll be traded.

    So there are two scenarios that are of interest (on more than the other) VJ has 5 accreud seasons, a new CBA most likely will make him a URFA with so many years, but the old CBA states that if a RFA does not sign with the team that owns his rights, he's still a RFA the following season, if that stays in the new CBA VJ is screwed

    The Chargers could simply place the Franchise Tag on V.J. regardless. I doubt a new CBA gets rid of the franchise tag system so anyway the dice rolls, the Chargers still have exclusive rights to VJ.

    The franchise tag has two versions - exclusive and non- exclusive. The exclusive version requires 2 first round picks and the player can not speak to any teams period. The non exclusive tag allows the player to get his best deal to include two first round picks from the signing team.

    That is power and coincidentially what they all collectively agreed upon despite all the agent and team hand wringings and posturing.

    true, but that would cost the Chargers more (like 10 million for one year) on the other hand if VJ stays a RFA (because of the "rollover") then AJ can laugh in his face and tell him "here's the 3.2 million tender again, do you want it for THIS season or will you sit out 2 years in a row?"
