    "We're always going to be an organization that rewards players who have been productive on the field for us and good citizens off the field," Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. "We're glad to get this contract situation resolved and we look forward to a long association with Roddy."

    Jackson is a quality receiver, but not yet in the line of Larry Fitzgerald or other pro bowlers. He is also facing a suspension next season and not this season only because of an appeal. The Chargers would be smart to front load the contract because they won't pay 25% of it in the first season. That's barring any more scrapes. He obviously has a drinking problem, with two DUI's. He'll be looking at pile of community service, group meetings and counseling sessions. A lot depends on this season and whether or not he can stay out of trouble.
