The deadline for trading receiver Vincent Jackson has come and gone, and the player remains the property of the Chargers.
Agent Neil Schwartz tells us that he had worked out with more than one team an acceptable contract for Jackson, and that the deal did not get done.
Schwartz blames the lack of a deal on the Chargers’ demands.
“Other General Managers felt that the Chargers were being totally unreasonable,” Schwartz told us by phone.
“Archie Manning had it right about this organization,” Schwartz said.
UPDATE: Schwartz’s partner, Jonathan Feinsod, offered up a similar quote to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “Archie Manning had it right,” Feinsod said. “They call [G.M. A.J. Smith] the Lord of No Rings for a reason.”
