    NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported the deal is worth just under $56 million, with $26 million guaranteed, according to a league source. Jackson will make $26 million in the first two years and $36 million in the first three.

    Laurent Robinson | WR Previous Team: Dallas Exp: 5 years

    Analysis: Robinson is visiting with the Jaguars, a league source told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. With Vincent Jackson likely gone, the Chargers have jumped in the hunt for Robinson, a league source told NFL Network's Albert Breer.


    Too much to hope that he will come at under half of that contract??

    Sucks. We wont see another WR like him come through here for a looooooong time. Just wait until balls start being dropped by a "Passing" team. Mark my words.

    Only piece left to this mystery that we may never know or has yet to surface:

    What was AJ and Deans price they were trying to get VJ for?

    I trust in Charlie Joiner more than VJ. Our productivity shouldnt suffer any more than usual with new players adjusting to a new system.

    I am beginning to wonder what kind of crap VJ is going to be saying about Norv, AJ and the Chargers as he makes his way out of town... seems that's what the last few free agents (LT, Sproles, Cromartie, etc) have done as they leave America;s finest city.

    Hells yea! I liked the last matchup. And glad Jeff Garcia Manned through the bleeding face.

    Jeff Garcia TBvs SD bloody sunday.jpg

    Oddly enough the NFL doesnt feel as open to bloody players on TV unlike the UFC, but when he had the gash in his nose bust open it was free flowing. Im pretty sure the gameball had Garcia DNA on it. Alas this is the closest to a pic of JG after his SD bloody Sunday, as I had this image titled.

    I would rather not see the same happening to Freeman. Thats my QB of his draft class!! Minus Jmar Flopssel, I have a penchant for the Cannon Arm QBs out of the draft.

    This year im goin agile QB over the Prototypical. Sucks I have to watch the Ratskins tho.

    The problem is (and I don't uderstand why), but professional athletes pay taxes in the state that they play their game in. So yee 8 games of his salary will be state tax free, but the other 8 will be based on the taxes in the state that the game is in

    I did not know that. If that is the case than why can't they be independent contractors and pay for their own travels chich would give them some tax relief.

    I have no idea, but there is some info
    http://articles.latimes.com/2009/apr/12/sports/sp-jock-tax12

    "Athletes are taxed based on "duty days" they spend in each state. In baseball, there are approximately 181 "duty days," meaning a player earning $1.81 million would make $10,000 each duty day. Therefore, if that player's team had three games in California, he would be responsible for taxes on $30,000 of income."

    Why cant they restructure the contract so that they only get paid for games played in Florida.

    The other states would do what ever they had to do to make sure that isn't allowed

    and what can they do? I am positive a lot of people travel out of Florida on business and spend a lot of time in other states while on business, the other States do not go after them and they to are making money.

    These are state laws specifically about athletes, and laws that ALL 50 states have in place. They only effect athletes, not actors, CEO's or any other profession. I don't get it, but it is fact and won't be changing
