We recently threw out the possibility of the Minnesota Vikings pursuing Vincent Jackson in a trade, following Sidney Rice's surgery on his hip. One of the problems, though, was that Jackson's contract demands were probably going to be too high. In fact, that ended up being the chief deterrent to Minnesota chasing him in a deal with San Diego.

Well, maybe.

Turns out, according to Jackson's agent Neil Schwartz, as related to Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com , the Vikings couldn't even get in the door when it came time to talk trade. Apparently, the only team the Chargers decided to let talk with Schwartz were the Seahawks.

"After the initial story came out, I got calls from four or five other teams asking about Vincent," Schwartz said, "but I told them I didn't have permission to talk to them about that player and they had to call San Diego."

According to LaCanfora, Schwartz, following the Vikes' decision to ink Javon Walker, went to the Chargers VP Ed McGuire and asked for

"I asked for that list of teams, but he wouldn't tell me," Schwartz said. "So I asked him, 'What are you guys asking for a trade?' And he said, 'I'm not telling you.'

"At that point, I said, 'Ed. It doesn't sound like you guys want to trade Vincent.'"

And that's where we stand now -- except things could get hairier if the Chargers don't find a new home for Jackson by September 4, because at that point he'd be subject to the roster exempt list (along with Marcus McNeil), in which case he'd miss the first six games of the season; three for his suspension and three for the roster-exempt status.

So sayeth the NFL -- the NFLPA on the other hand, according to LaCanfora and Schwartz, don't agree. Which means we could see some sort of arbitration coming, not to mention a larger void in an already fractured relationship.
