Vincent Jackson hearing coming on September 16

The NFL believes that the placement of Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson on the roster exempt list knocks him out of the first six games of the regular season, even if he is traded.  The NFL Players Association believes that a trade removes Jackson from the roster exempt list, cutting his unavailability in half.

A league source tells us that the matter will be resolved via a hearing held on September 16.

The issue will be resolved by Special Master Stephen Burbank, who has the initial authority to resolve certain disputes under the labor agreement.  An expedited ruling is expected to be made after the hearing.

Jackson’s agents have said that an unnamed and, for now, unknown team had worked out a one-year contract with Jackson on Saturday, but that the Chargers and the unnamed team could not work out the terms of a trade.  Presumably, that team would remain interested in trading for Jackson, if it’s determined that he’d miss only three games of the season, the duration of his suspension for multiple DUI guilty pleas.

    It should only be 3 gms if he is traded but 6 if he stays with the chargers…….but don’t bet on it happening, the nfl wants to be “god” with everything nfl.

    After watching the opener earlier tonight, I kept wondering why Minnesota doesn’t trade for Vincent Jackson. Could you imagine Brett Favre throwing to him?

    Chargers won’t trade him to a Super Bowl contender that could come back to haunt them if they played eachother in the SB for example. The Seahawks are a more likely team, since they suck.

    Here is the deal. A.J. Smith will try to screw him in every possible way imaginable, because this dude, bascially guaranteed that McNeil, the best LT wouldnt sign either….look for a bad situation to get worse, especially in light of the mammoth deal Brady signed.

    Thats what Brett Favre needs, another target he doesn’t have time to throw to.

    Slowwww down there, turbo… ur not going to the Super Bowl.
    U’ve been handed the AFC West far too long and couldn’t capitalize.. Don’t look now, but the rest of ur division is catching up.
    Ur team should embrace it’s talent and u should PAY the man…

    well the Seahawks cut TJ & the Vikings didn’t pick him up so it could be either team. w/ all the additions to the seahawks it would be hard to imagine them taking on a big contract w/ the CBA probably having a salary cap next season. so unless they plan on winning a superbowl then they would build through the draft & cheap FAs.
    the Vikings make way more sense & their out of the AFC & not on the Chargers schedule either.
