    The cost of Vincent Jackson

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 2, 2010 12:29 PM ET
    First we heard the Chargers just wanted a second-round pick for Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson.

    Then we heard from the San Diego Union-Tribune that the second-round pricetag was actually floated by the Seattle Seahawks as a test balloon.

    Now we've got an answer in the middle that sounds just right. Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports reports that Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith has asked for a second-round pick in 2011 and a third-round pick in 2012 in exchange for Jackson.

    Combine those draft picks and Jackson's disputed asking price on a new contract, and you can understand why there hasn't been a trade.

    Silver thinks the Vikings should take the plunge by offering a conditional third-round pick and signing Jackson to a one-year deal. We agree with the logic, but it sounds like Minnesota already balked at Jackson's contract demands before acquiring Greg Camarillo.

    Jackson has two days left until his trade value goes down and he's likely forced to miss six games this season instead of three. We'll wait and see if the soft September 4 deadline inspires any action, because it's been surprisingly quiet on the Jackson front this week.

    When VJ signs his next contract everyone needs to remember how much he actually lost.

    **** - his next contract will be bigger than anything he has ever seen in his life even if his *** sits for this year and a lockout year.

    Dude will bank.

    Even if dude signed a 5-year deal with the Chargers this afternoon, he is dead to me. His selfishness and short-sighted position has proven him to be a true douche. I am trying to keep hope alive for MM, but it is becoming more and more difficult.

    and on a side note ESPN has said Brett Favre 318 times in the last week.

    Its obvious the VJ does not want to be here, or he would have signed. Its time to let him go and let the Chargers move on without him, because he is not here!

    Well said. Would VJ even go for a 1 year lucrative deal?
