    According to Kevin Acee. said "Vincent Jackson on plane back from honeymoon. But he is expected to sign franchise tender at 3:01 p.m. Friday." "That, by the way, is one minute after he is allowed to sign." Via Twitter

    I still don't understand why we can't work out a 3 or 4 year deal with this guy.

    then get his butt into camp, and lets see if AJ signs him to a long term deal, which would help us out in the long run.

    Might be the fact that he wants Marshall money. ;)

    They may work on one once he signs, but both sides have poisoned the well last year, it will take a lot of reconciliation to get a LT deal done IMHO.

    VJ has indicated he wants to stick around. Teams have to spend almost 90% of their cap room with the new agreement this year(if I remember right), so next season I have to wonder what team is going to have enough of a bundle of money to spend that much on guys like VJ. We have an enormous amount of cap room. It would appear we have enough to sigh him, Weddle, Malcom, Clarey and Burnett, especially since we can borrow from future caps. We really need to sign VJ and all the above. I don't know anyone else out there with his ability and his durability, except maybe Rice. Nice to finally have something to talk about besides people throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.

    We will give Jeromy Clary $20 million though over 4 years? Nothing against Clary hard worker and all but not worth $5 million per.

    I would have spent that money on sweetning the pot for VJ to stay. But his off the field issues and hold out have costed AJ his patience.

    Clary gets $8.5 million the first year, so it's only $3.8 million a year after that...... a manageable amount.
