    I know it may just be a coincident, but I find it interesting that they do this the day after Nanee gets arrested. I doubt there's any chance they would have tagged Legedu, but I wonder if they opt not to bring him back now.

    Of course, things like this haven't caused the Chargers to bat an eye so far.

    Thank you to my grandfather jetrazor for being a veteran of the armed forces!

    Haha, if that is the Chargers reasoning, they really aren't to bright. hahaha

    Maybe they just forgot about Vincent Jacksons trouble with drinking and driving

    But you are right, that might have played a role.

    No more Legadu, probably no more Buster Davis.

    Floyd is injury prone.

    Pretty much all we have is Gates and Jackson and Gates is injury prone as well.

    Draft a WR #1? or OLine/DE?
    Rivers is deciding to play bad, just to see how it feels.

    this is probably a tag and trade, until the cba dissolves if it does, and all these franchise tags (peyton, vick, mankins, vj) become null and void

    next cba may not even have a franchise tag lol

    Little surprised by this. Still won't be surprised if it's a sign and trade.

    Coincidence it happens after Nannee gets arrested

    not really a coincidence

    as peyton mankins vick ngata were all also tagged with no arrests by people who back them up....

    it's just franchise tag time, that's all, plus tagging vj is the last chance sd would have of trading him

    Manning, Vick, and Ngata weren't going to be traded.

    Jackson isn't going to play for the Chargers long anyway

    you cant trade the guy if he isn't under contract lol

    the chargers were leaning twords doing this months before this happened with LN.

    The Chargers, officially, have not made up their mind regarding whether to place the tag on wide receiver Vincent Jackson. The teamís personnel people have been meeting this week to decide the makeup of the team in 2011.

    However, it has been known for two months that General Manager A.J. Smith has been leaning toward keeping Jackson another year.

    Stupid decision imo.
    There are some quality WR on the market like Rice.
    Weddle is harder to replace, and just overall a better player.
