    SAN DIEGO (AP)—Vincent Jackson’s agent says he’s told the San Diego Chargers that the wide receiver will report next week and sign his contract tender.

    By reporting Oct. 29, Jackson will be able to serve a three-game, team-imposed suspension on the roster exempt list, then play in the final six games to accrue his sixth season toward unrestricted free agency.

    Jackson and Schwartz said earlier this fall that the receiver likely wouldn’t play this year.

    However, Schwartz says that with the current labor uncertainty, it would be best to accrue a sixth season and become an unrestricted free agent.

    Jackson has refused to report because he’s unhappy at not getting a long-term deal.
