Potential V-Jackson deal scuttled

Pro Football Talk is reporting estranged Chargers WR Vincent Jackson and an NFL team had finalized a one-year contract but that the unnamed squad couldn’t work out a trade with San Diego.

For now, that deal appears to be dead.

It’s thought the Chargers are looking for a second- and third-round pick in exchange for Jackson, but so far, that deal has proven to be too pricy.

1 Year deal?  I bet that was the Vikes, who need a WR for the year.  Of course, we need the WR for the first 3-6 games too.

V-Jackass has put himself into a bind he can't get out of.  Let's not forget his agent is suppose to advise Jackson on the best course of action for a career.  Obviously Jackson and his agent thought they could work out a deal for a trade prior to 9/4.  This would have removed the extra 3 game suspension that was placed on Jackson by AJ.

AJ once again out smarted the both of them.  If Jackson does not play 6 games this year he loses a year of service and thus is once again a restricted free agent in 2011, that assumes there is no NFL lockout. 

His NFL imposed three games began on 9/5.  So the first three Charger games count as his NFL suspension even if he does not signed with anyone.  The next three are against whatever team signs him.

My bet is that comes into the Chargers at week 7. He signs his tender and plays the rest of the season at the minimum.   He gets his three game suspension done by week 9 and has the Bye week to fit into the offense.  He almost has no choice but to try and get six games under his belt.  Therefore he will be with the team for the playoff run.  I think the Chargers are counting on this and thus only kept 4 wideouts on the 53 man roster.

Not sure what this post has to do with Vincent Jackson and how he is a dummy for sitting out a season. Small market, big market...............Jackson is losing a peek year of his career because he is too childish to work a deal.

This situation reminds me Deion Branch in New England. Branch thought he outplayed his contract and forced his way out of town. The Patriots knew the entire time that without Brady he was an average player. Does Rivers make Jackson look much better then he is? Just a quick thought.  I know Jackson had better numbers, but that was the first comparison i could think of.

You have no clue how market size works or even how to define it...

San Diego is the 8th largest city by population but there are no other large cities around it to add to the fan base.

Dallas at 9th also has Fort Worth (+730 K people)
San Francisco at 12th has numerous other cities to add to the fan base.
Philadelphia at 6th has a local poplulation closer to 6 million with the surrounding counties.

Because we are bordered by Mexico the South, the ocean to the West and a sparse desert to the East there are no easily populated regions nearby for us to draw fans or expand our T.V. and radio sales.

To get a better idea of our market size lets look at the Nielson rankings per city.
THIS is the term that should be used when discussing market size.

San Diego is the 28th largest media market in the U.S.   28th. Thus we are a SMALL MARKET CITY.
For comparison: Dallas is the 5th largest, San Francisco is 6th and Philly is 4th.

Research. Learn. Then post.

The Charger PR machine is of questionable believability. They would claim San Diego is a small market.  That is not true. San Diego is the 7th largest city in the US, with 1.3 million in the city and over 3 million in the metro area.  The difference here in reality is that there is much to do; if you stink people will not come. (See the LA Rams with Georgia Frontiere as an example)

Don't put any faith in this report.
Vincent Jackson had the chance to work a 1 year deal, and claimed the risk of injury is why he has sought a long term deal.

So why play for a one year deal now, after throwing away 3 million?

Don't believe the hype machine.

Remember the hype machine tried to contend the Chargers weren't trying to trade Jackson, when his 50 million dollar asking price was what scared teams away, and the Rams validated it as true as late as yesterday.
