No Vincent Jackson deal, yet

With the clock ticking toward a Wednesday afternoon deadline for Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson landing with a new team and missing only four games, there are rampant Twitter rumors and speculation that a deal between the Chargers and the Vikings has been reached.

If that’s the case, no one is talking about it yet.

Though neither team privately will confirm that anything is happening, neither team has dismissed it, either. 

Sources close to the player continue to take a “we’ll see” approach to the situation.

The challenge for the Chargers will be to compare any trade offers to the potential third-round compensatory pick in 2012 they’ll be in line to receive if Jackson leaves as an unrestricted free agent in March, or whenever the new NFL season starts.  And the Vikings may be able to justify the investment by realizing that they possibly could be in line for the compensatory pick in 2012, if they don’t re-sign Jackson.

In the end, the best approach could be to tie the ultimate compensation to Jackson’s performance in 2010 and/or whether he signs a multi-year deal with the Vikings.  The more the Vikings get out of him, the more willing they may be to part with a higher level of compensation.

    VJax to Minnesota for a 1st or 2nd in 2011 and a conditional 2012 that will range from a 2nd to a 5th.

  2. Worst Poster Ever says: Sep 21, 2010 12:59 PM

    I love AJ Smith’s hardball approach. Whenever teams think you need to trade a guy they lowball you. If I’m AJ I wouldn’t let him go for anything less than a 1st rounder and another draft pick.

  3. boltfan says: Sep 21, 2010 1:01 PM

    The Chargers are not going to trade VJ for just anything. I like the fact trhat they are holding for the right offer.

    They may not be in line for a third round pick when/if a new CBA gets done. Ya never know what might change

  15. boundiali says: Sep 21, 2010 1:16 PM

    The Chargers would only get a compensatory pick if they have a net loss of UFAs, so I highly doubt that figures into their decision making. If it does, that would mean that they would be intentionally limiting their own ability to sign any UFAs next off-season.

  16. Bullet says: Sep 21, 2010 1:16 PM

    VJ to Minnesota would put the Vikings back in to playoff contention. Imagine when Rice comes back…

  17. 12TimeWorldChamps says: Sep 21, 2010 1:18 PM

    HAHAHAHA – desperate stupid Vikings – making moves just so Brett doesn’t look stupid in the Ted Revenge Tour Part II.
    I dunno … when Brett threw his typical three picks and fumbled in the end zone last week, it didn’t look like he was very into the game, LOL.
    Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers continues his Pro Bowl pace.

    VJAX as a Viking:
    Game 1: No chemistry with Favre, 3 catches for 22 yards.
    Game 2: 39 yard reception on the 1st play from scrimmage, VJAX comes up lame, out 3-4 weeks with high-ankle sprain or pulled hammy or something with a knee or any number of things that can happen when you’ve been eating corn dogs on the sofa instead of playing your contract.
    Game 3: VJAX realizes he didn’t become an instant savior, but still thinks he’s special and decides to hold out for 12-years and $1.6 Billion in small, unmarked bills.
    Game 4: Favre quits team, deciding to go full-time into blue jeans commercials, his true calling.

    How many Super Bowls have you won? The answer to that question isn’t changing with V-Jack.

    So “artkang”..
    Who is REALLY more “pathetic”? A guy who not only is a lawyer (passing the BAR exam is something I’m certain you would never be able to do) who also was able to build a LIVING out of something he LOVES to do – write about football…
    OR…
    A guy who constantly logs onto the BLOG that the “pathetic” guy created and constantly criticizes him for doing what not only succeeded but gave him the opportunity to do network televison?
    Really dude… get a freakin’ perspective on life.
    Does it REALLY make you feel better to get on this blog and say “Florio sucks”? Cuz it has gotten REALLY, REALLY, REALLY old.

  22. StevieMo says: Sep 21, 2010 1:21 PM

    This whole situation may comeback and blow up in VJ’s face…..This reminds me of another great wide out that left the Chargers and was never heard from again. Anyone remember John Jefferson?

  24. Hauschild says: Sep 21, 2010 1:22 PM

    At this stage, the Chargers really would be best served to take what they can get, which should be nothing more than a 2nd from the Vikings.
    Jackson will only play 12 games, and at least 4 of those will be in a limited capacity. So, it doesn’t make much sense to overpay for a player that is not in football shape, suspended and a perpetual behavioral risk – simply as a stop-gap for Rice, who is better anyway.

  25. Dewey Axewoond says: Sep 21, 2010 1:24 PM

    Wait, I thought Benedict Bernard Berrian was supposed to be an elite, #1 WR talent?
    What happened?
    I guess there’s just no duplicating the magic BB had with Rex Grossman, huh?
    I know you Queef fans have been hearing a lot of this lately, but you can stand to hear it once more:

    Now, in the words of your lisping fuitcake Senator, keep telling yourselves the following:

    It’s a big fat obvious laughable lie, but you Purple Fairies of the North seem to naturally enjoy existing in a state of perpetual delusion.

  26. dannyk says: Sep 21, 2010 1:24 PM

    What’s with all the cloak and dagger stuff in the Vikings organization all the time? What would it hurt to say, “Yes, we’ve considered going after him.” Do they really think someone else would immediately try to trump their bid? After all, how many teams are that desperate to get a problem reciever who won’t be eligible for four weeks and not able for about 6 to 7 weeks?

    Vincent Jackson only has trade value right now. The charges gain nothing by waiting. If Vincent Jackson sits a year or possibly longer due to the CBA situation.., then you have a player who’s out of practice/shape for the game. The Chargers will get the most from him now, from a team that’s desperate for WR help. Vikings, Redskins or Rams.., are the only make-sense teams.
    The deal will be done about ten minutes before the deadline. Leverage…,

    With the problems with Braylon Edwards now and the Jets waiting for Holmes, could be they try to make a play for him.

  32. Ruvell100 says: Sep 21, 2010 1:30 PM

    If Jackson is smart, he and his agent will agree to contractual terms and the trade, and then refuse to come in to Minnesota. The Vikes will throw him another couple million just like that. Free money.
    When you see a business or franchise that’s reeling and in complete desperation mode, it’s usually of their own making. During this time, it is best to run them over, take advantage of them and effectually put them out of business for good because they are too weak to make it and are costing good businesses their hard earned dollars to prop them up.

  33. FinFan68 says: Sep 21, 2010 1:31 PM

    Next year’s 2nd (third is more appropriate) and a 2012 conditional ranging from rounds 3-5)

  35. winslow says: Sep 21, 2010 1:37 PM

    USC needs another receiver, although it is unknown whether Jackson would agree to a contract similar to the one Reggie Bush had with the Trojans (A house plus a car plus Kim Kardashian).
    The Vikings would be better served by trading for Marcus McNeill. They have a great back who is being hindered by an aging offensive line.

  36. KC_Cisco says: Sep 21, 2010 1:39 PM

    I can understand AJ not wanting to pay Vincent Jackson. He’s one strike away from a year suspension. But why won’t he pay his starting left tackle? They are in the bottom quarter of the league in payroll.

  37. artkang says: Sep 21, 2010 1:49 PM

  38. Ruvell100 says: Sep 21, 2010 1:49 PM

    I heard the Vikings were on the verge of making a deal with Rae Carruth, but he was too much of a “high character” guy and wasn’t washed up enough for the Vikings to throw $12M a year at.

  39. Peoria Viking says: Sep 21, 2010 1:50 PM

    Florio scooped by Wikipedia???
    Vincent Jackson aka “Action Jackson” (born January 14, 1983 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is an American football wide receiver who currently plays in the National Football League for the Minnesota Vikings.

  40. cronn100 says: Sep 21, 2010 1:51 PM

    Chargers should get a #2 in 2011, a DT now – maybe Fred Evans (MN is deep at DT and SD is in desperate need). Also a conditional pick in 2012 #4-#6. MN needs to sign V-Jack long term, then release or trade Berrian next year. That would give MN the league’s best WR trio with V-Jack, S. Rice & P. Harvin.

    You’re an idiot. V jackson had one good year… Thats it. He is a big play target and reaped the rewards of teams worrying about Gates. Who do the Vikes have to take attention off of V jax? No one. He is a poor route runner, does not have high top end speed, and is an off the field issue away from missing a big portion of a season if not all of it (I am unsure which step is next for him). As a Packer fan I PRAY they get V Jax, it will be hilarious that they have 2 WRs being paid top 10 money, and not one is the actual top 10 WR on their team named Rice. SCHISM!

    It’s going to take AT LEAST a second rounder next year and a conditional 3rd from the Vikings, because those picks aren’t likely to be very high ones. Now, if St. Louis or Detroit wants to talk, that’s a different story. Plus, it would give A.J. Smith pleasure in being able to trade that idiot malcontent to a perennial loser.

    wikipedia’s newest update
    Vincent Jackson aka “Action Jackson” (born January 14, 1983 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is an American football wide receiver who currently plays with himself.

  50. sand0 says: Sep 21, 2010 2:14 PM

    The chargers have absolutely no reason to do anything at all until near the deadline unless a fantastic offer is made. Even if they are willing to let him go for a 3rd rounder, they wouldn’t do anything until the last offer is made.
    The problem is that Jackson’s value in this situation isn’t as high as one might initially think. Sure, he’s a very good football player. But you are only getting 3/4 of the season out of him and he’s one DWI or failed drug test away from being out a season. Plus he’s coming to your team fresh and likely won’t be up to speed with the system until week 7 or 8. And his contract is up this season and he’s in line for a big raise.
    I just don’t think the Chargers will get a 1st rounder for him from any team. Maybe a 2nd rounder. Most likely a 3rd rounder plus late rounder. Then again AJ’s hardball approach boads well for a team that feels they are on the cusp like the Vikes or the Skins.

  52. purpleguy says: Sep 21, 2010 2:22 PM

    Come on, Jackson is going to be too little, too late for too much. By the time he can play and gets in any reasonable offensive familiarity, the season will be half over and Rice may be healthy and/or the Vikes’ record deficit will be too much to overcome. They should only do this deal if the pick is low and they know Rice ain’t coming back any time soon. And probably the only thing I’ve ever agreed with the Dewey dude on is that Berrian is over-rated.

  53. vikes says: Sep 21, 2010 2:28 PM

    He is not worth more than a 2nd round pick in 2011, plus a 4th or later in 2012. If the Vikings can swing that and get a one year deal signed its worth it, getting a third back in 2012. Otherwise we don’t want this guy for the next few years, unless the CBA gets rid of the salary cap. He is about the 25th best reciever wanting top 3 money, and proving he’ll wait for it. Not a good value, Vikes just remeber how we opened the season the first few games last year, than remember how we went from bad recievers to some of the best. Football only matters in Jan/Feb. Jackson will have another DUI by than.

    ___________________________________
    Maybe if they both stay in the backfield and pass block. Apparently when you watch the Vikings play, you fail to see your elderly QB getting pressured and piss pounded. Why is that…? Because no receivers are getting open, or because the O-line sucks…or both?
    That team is in disarray, and nothing short of a God-given miracle will save Favre and the team. Deep down, do you really think that when the Vikes go into the new Meadowlands in a few weeks that the Jets defense isn’t going to absolutely pummel Favre…? Seriously?
    I can’t stand the drama fag, yet I’m actually concerned that he may not walk off the field in that game.
    Don’t look too far past this weekend, because this pissed off Lions team is coming for Gramps…and may just get him. I’ve said it for weeks….one way or another, T-Jack will be starting for the Vikes by Week 12. Book it, Danno.

    Why all the haters?
    Because for 7 months all we heard was whining and entitlement to something you didn’t earn.
    “The Refs screwed us”
    “WE beat the Saints”
    “WE are the real winners”
    “We got screwed”
    “Favre is God”
    “We had twice the yards as the Saints”
    “Phantom calls”
    How about the lack of a call on the facemask on Rodgers to end our season?? You don’t hear Packer fans whining about that. WE realize we had no right to that game, giving up 51 freakin points. Own up to the team’s mistakes, don’t make excuses.
    I love Jim Schwartz’s quote after the controversial CJ catch against the Bears.
    “The day I stand up here and blame the officials, is the day I don’t deserve to be doing this job anymore” Something to that effect… Complete class. Vikings lack that… both the organization and the fan base.
    Blah blah blah. We had to put up with you loud mouth, abnoxious idiots for far too long. Before this season it was all boasting and big talk. Where are you at now Viking Fans? Where you at? Yeah, 0-2 is not much to talk about. Talk about oh we only lost by 5 and 4 points? Yeah, well you have only scored 19 points all season thus far, against two average defenses. I called it before the season, that this is the year missing training camp catches up to Favre. But I didn’t expect them to be 0-2. I love it. No more talking and concentrate on your team scratching to get to .500 and a wild card berth. Enjoy third in the division. (Should be last right now, because to me both the Bears and Lions are 1-1.) Bears are now better than the Vikings. They have a better defense, and their offense at least is in synch. But thats what happens when players buckle down and show up to camp to actually do work. GOD I couldn’t be happier with how this season has started…. Shut up the Vikes fans earlier than expected.

    Really? What do you do with a havana? You’re supposed to smoke it.

    As you can see, Carl….they’re not too bright up there. Life is so bad, they actually soak their fish in poison, but so many have become accustomed to it, it’s like a luxury item up there. I feel for ‘em.
    Give ‘em some slack….their world is crashing down. What to do now with the rest of fall but get the ice fishing gear ready…yeah der, eh? Got the skates ready, eh?

    well, 1st off, your name says it all.
    That name tells me there is no objectivity.
    2008 59-1098-18.6 7tds
    2009 68 -1167-17.2 9tds
    Hes played 3 freaking years you tool.
    40 time = 4.46
    Anything else you want to be wrong about?
    Yep he had off feild issues, so did Allen and he’s stayed out of trouble….people CAN change.
    You really don’t hope he makes it to the Vikes.
    Yo hope he makes it to the Vikes and gets in trouble.
    If your packers are so good, why are you so worried about a Vikes transaction for?
    I love how you cheese turds say the Vikes are insignificant, yet you can’t help but post “hoping” for things to happen.
    The Vikings are 0-2, what are you so worried about?
    Keep counting your chickens before they hatch, it’s a long season.
    ——————————–
    A combined 127 catches and 16 tds in 2 GREAT years. Wow. Yeah I would definitely give up a 2nd rounder for that right away. And then pay him his 10 million a year.
    I DO HOPE he goes to the Vikes. He is the most overrated WR in football. He is also a head case.
    4.46? Not really that impressive for a deep threat… I ran a 4.59 in college. Thats not that good… Period.
    I am not wrong about VJ. Sure he is a big target for Favre to throw to. But what about the O line giving Favre time to throw it to him deep? Or what about next year when they have T jack or God knows who starting? Rice and VJ being thrown to by a UFL caliber QB does not equal success. I feel I hit a nerve by ripping your team though… 0-2 sucks huh? I’m sorry. Well maybe you can get Locker next year. Or Ryan Mallett. Your schedule only gets harder…. Jets, Patriots, and Packers twice. Not to mention a ton of other very hard games. I see 7 wins at the absolute max, but thats unlikely. HAVE FUN!

    The Vikings should be stocking up draft picks not giving them away.
    They are clearly in a rebuilding year.

    So basically, Florio, you used 85 words to tell us nothing.
    You’re a pathetic reporter.

    I think it’s more pathetic that you actually counted all 85 words.

    I pray the Vikings make that trade. Then, not only did they piss away this year, they will lose some valuable draft picks in the next two years and that is how teams fall apart and become non-competitive (see Lions and Bills)

    AJ Smith do this deal. A first round draft pick or at least a second round pick. The Vikings organization is deperate and the Wilfs have tons of money (Except when the topic of funding a new stadium comes up). Take advantage of this situation.

    While Vincent Jackson has a bit to sort out at the moment. He is a nice size target that can fight for the ball when needed. Along with Rice and Shank we would have some nice weapons for late in the season. But right now this team is in a must win situation this Sunday against the Lions. After 40 years rooting for this team I just can’t figure out why they never seem to get it until they are about to loose it all. Foronce why can’t they act and play like tru chanpions!

    AJ may score a great deal for SD here…a first rounder would be a steal.
