WR Vincent Jackson officially ended his ugly season-long holdout today and signed a one-year tender with the Chargers.

Since GM A.J. Smith placed him on the Roster-Exempt list, Jackson - whose original salary for the season would have been $3.2 million before it was slashed to $600,000 - will miss the next three weeks and will be eligible to play Nov. 28 vs. the Colts.

Jackson “I’m happy Vincent is here,” Smith said in a team release.  “I have no doubt he will go to work, work hard and quickly get into game-shape. Once he starts playing in games, I don’t think it will take him long for him to be a contributor and help us.”

Said Jackson in that same release: “It feels good to be with my teammates. I’ve missed football more than you can imagine. Right now I’m just looking forward to being able to practice and get back on the field. My only concern is doing whatever I can to contribute and help the team win. The future will take care of itself.”

Jackson will join a Chargers offense that ranks first in the NFL in passing yards with an average of 317.4 yards per contest. In Jackson’s absence, Malcom Floyd - who's struggling with a hamstring injury currently - has moved into that so-called No. 1 WR spot, though TE Antonio Gates leads the team with 35 catches for 540 yards and eight touchdowns. Meanwhile, RB Darren Sproles is third on the team in receptions. Aside from that, the WR depth is pretty thin.

Getting a top-quality WR who’s tall and unusually gifted will be a pretty good Thanksgiving gift for Chargers QB Philip Rivers. And for the Chargers who are among the NFL’s most disappointing teams this season.
