  • Chargers Grant Seahawks Permission to Discuss V Jax

    Vincent Jackson-WR-Chargers Aug. 20 - 5:53 pm et

    The Chargers have granted the Seahawks permission to discuss contract terms with unsigned and disgruntled wide receiver Vincent Jackson.

    The story is confirmed by Seahawks GM John Schneider, so it's legit. While Yahoo's Jason Cole admits that "no significant progress has occurred to this point," sources say Chargers GM A.J. Smith is now "committed" to trading V-Jax. The Bolts are convinced he will not play for them this year. The Seahawks have clearly been underwhelmed with Deion Branch, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh is hardly a difference maker anymore. Jackson would give Seattle a bonafide deep threat who can dominate in the red zone and run game as a blocker.
    Hopefully you guys can get something for him.

    Give him to Miami!



    Sorry guys... kinda know how this feels... it sucks it didn't work out better... but it'll be good when it's over and you can stop hearing about it, hopefully.
    Thanks, Reid!

      Great news. I can't think of any players the Seahawks have that they would be willing to part with, but draft picks are always nice. And I can always fantasize about some crazy deal in which Lofa Tatupu ends up in San Diego.

      As for the WR position, I have a ton of confidence in Naanee to pick up the slack. Buster Davis may finally show his talents as well. VJ is / was an incredible talent, but there is only 1 irreplaceable guy on the Chargers, #17 Philly Cheese.

        Fantasy nightmare right there!

        I know SD has other weapons, but why VJax? Seahawks have less chance to make the SB, that's no good.

          I don't like SD piling up all these picks. I'm inclined to think Rivers made Jackson instead of the other way around. Rivers will be fine with who he's currently got Naanee, Floyd, Gates, Sproles & Mathews running the ball.

            The Chargers have granted permission to the Seattle Seahawks to talk to receiver Vincent Jackson.

            According to league sources, a stalemate has been reached because Jackson’s agents are asking for $30 million guaranteed on a five-year, $50 million contract.

            The Seahawks’ interest has long been known, and the Seahawks confirmed to Yahoo! Sports they have spoken to Jackson’s agent. The sides have been talking for at least several days, according to a league source.

            The same sources said the asking price from the Chargers is a second-rounder.
            At this point, I'll take a 2nd round pick for VJ. It sure would've been nice to have that 2nd rounder in the loaded 2010 draft, however.

              Make no mistake, VJ is a freak of nature at 6'5, 240 with speed and leaping abilities. He can get wide open down the field like few other receivers in the league.

              We may see a return to more ball-control and shorter passes from the Chargers this season. Naanee, Reed and Davis don't have the same field-stretching ability, but they are probably better underneath.

                They will get what, a 2nd or 3rd from Cromartie and a 2nd rounder if they trade VJ..

                Floyd is good, but if they trade VJ how will Floyd do against #1 CB's instead of #2 CB's.. Naanee is solid, but more of a possession WR, same with Floyd, how does he do against #2 type CB's..

                Davis hasn't put it together yet, and Reed, possession WR.. Matthews is just a rookie, and Sproles is good on 3rd down, KR/PR, screens.. We all know how good Gates is..

                  I think they'll be lucky to get a 2nd for him at this point. But at least the FO and team can move on if they do indeed trade him..

                    Chargers already have 2 3rd round picks and 2 2nd rounders next year, as long as Cro stays healthy and/or the Jets make the playoffs. The extra 3rd came by way of the Whitehurst trade. Unfortunately, next year's draft probably won't be very strong as a result of all those underclassmen declaring this year.

                    Neither Floyd nor Naanee are possession receivers. Floyd almost led the league in yards per reception, for chrissakes. Naanee is a big guy with good speed, great hands and leaping ability. He will make plays down the field as well, although not as many as VJ made.

                      They just need to get the Seahawks and the Redskins in a bidding war for VJ's services. 1 of those 2 teams will overpay. If there is a major injury to a contending team's top WR before the trade deadline, we may see that team come into play as well.

                        Sucks he has to go but Gates could always pick up the production.

                        Agree with the comment the guy who matters most is Rivers
                        Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                          Ok, maybe I am being a conspiracy theorist here, but this doesnt make a ton of sense to me.

                          In the offseason, Seattle would given up picks for Marshall so I wonder why SD is putting all their eggs in one basket.

                          St Louis, Buffalo, Cardinals or 49ers could also use receiving help. Why not give him permission to talk to those guys too? Besides, they might even get a mini bidding war going and come up with another pick or two.

                          Just seems weird to narrow permission down to one team.

                            This.

                            If the Charger fans really think they can maintain what they did last year without V-Jax their beyond crazy... He is a match up nightmare that will immediately takes away their best weapon. Getting him out of the AFCW is going to be awesome.

                            Floyd is much like a Jabar Gaffney. They are an awesome #2 WR, but if asked to carry the load and go against #1 CB's for 16 weeks they are not going to be nearly as effective. Then Naanee is your 2nd option? Seriously? They have HORRIBLE depth at WR.

                            Getting a 2nd round pick is not going to match what Jackson brought to the Chargers. Not even close...

                            I see the division being a 3 team race when he leaves. Its going to be an awesome year.

                              I'm sorry that you are not familiar with Naanee's abilities. He is a very talented player who simply hasn't had the opportunity to break out yet. Expect that to happen this year.

                              The passing game won't suffer a whole lot, since Rivers spreads the ball around so much and Gates is truly the #1 guy in the passing game. This isn't like the Broncos offense, which threw it to Marshall like 30% of the time.
