What to do with Vincent Jackson?

Posted on: July 2, 2010 9:38 am
An interesting column by Tim Sullivan in the San Diego Union-Tribune this morning. In it, he calls WR Vincent Jackson (who’s freshly-suspended for three games for another DUI and who has threatened to hold out the season over his contract) a “prime piece of real estate with termite issues.”

He’s got phenomenal skills, Sullivan argues, but he’s also a real knucklehead who constantly undermines himself with his behavior.

From Sullivan:

Clearly, this is a player worth keeping. Ideally, however, on a short leash. But with both sides inclined toward impasse, with no sign of compromise, and with numerous trade scenarios in circulation, the most promising possibility could be a deal that brings the Bolts a high draft choice in 2011, a year in which there’s no guarantee any NFL football gets played.

Worst case: Use your imagination. And remember to keep your distance from the sharp objects.

His original restricted free agent was for about $3.2 million. He didn’t sign it. Now, the Chargers have reduced the offer to $583,000. Trade rumors have been floated (maybe the Seahawks, maybe the Bears), but those teams would have to pay him big money, and they’d have to ask themselves if he’s worth the risk. At this moment, apparently nobody thinks so.
