    After the Patriots shipped receiver Randy Moss to Minnesota, Tom Curran of CNNSE.com reported that the Patriots showed preliminary interest in Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson, who remains an unsigned restricted free agent.

    Curran now reports that the Patriots lost interest once owner Robert Kraft became aware that there was interest.

    The problem, per Curran, is Jackson's history of drunk driving. He has pleaded guilty twice to DUI, which resulted in a three-game suspension under the substance-abuse policy.

    With nine days remaining in the trading period, Curran reports that a trade for Jackson officially can be ruled out.
