There's a little more than 24 hours remaining for Vincent Jackson to either sign a contract, get traded, or end up potentially missing the first six games of 2010.
And the Chargers have reportedly (and, um, finally) decided to allow other teams to talk to Jackson's camp about a trade, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune , who cites a source saying the Chargers would be open to other teams pursuing their Pro Bowl wideout.
It makes sense for the Bolts to put Jackson on the full block, too. By doing so, they increase the pressure on Seattle (who's conveniently shopping T.J. Houshmandzadeh right now) to make a deal, lest someone else swoop in and grab Jackson.
And it gives teams who might have been interested a very small window with which to make a deal -- the greater the pressure, the more quickly a team might cave on its limits for what they'll give up in terms of compensation (to San Diego) and contract (to Jackson).
The latter part of that is interesting as well, since Acee also reports that Jackson would potentially be interested in a one-year, $7 million deal. And if he really wants to play this season, he'll have to be a little less demanding when discussing options with other teams. Otherwise he might just spend the year in street clothes.
