Chargers add Vincent Jackson to active roster

After a long, strange odyssey, Vincent Jackson is officially back on the Chargers active roster.  And it’s just in time to replace some newly injured teammates.

The Chargers officially activated Jackson off the roster exempt list on Tuesday and waived kicker Kris Brown.

Jackson should get plenty of targets right away with injuries still plaguing the team’s wideout group.  Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports Patrick Crayton is expected to be out “several weeks.”

Malcom Floyd aggravated his hamstring injury Monday night, while wideout Legedu Naanee and tight end Randy McMichael are uncertain to play because of their hamstring pulls.  Antonio Gates’ status remains up in the air.

Still, the team is excited to have Jackson back.

“You don’t see him for so long, you forget why he’s a Pro Bowler,” Gates told Acee. “He’s at the head of the class and everyone lines up behind him.”

  1. I’m a Chargers fan. VJ sat out all this time because he’s selfish and doesn’t care about the team. He only came back to earn a full year and pickup a pay check.

    What assurances are there that he will play at 100% of his potential?

    I think he’s toxic and I would sit him.

    Knowing him, he would probably intentionally drop balls and cause penalties.

  2. natelan, I am a Chargers fan also, but I can not believe WR Jackson would do anything other than his best. His feud is with AJ Smith, not the players or the coaches. Rivers and the other team leaders would not stand for any problems for a second.
    If VJ does dog it at all, AJ can suspend him for conduct unbecoming which is in all contracts. If VJ misses even one game by suspension, this year will not count for years in.

  3. Natelan – If he’s going to get that big contract he so desperately wants, he’s going to have to prove he still deserves all that dough.

    He’ll play, and he’ll play well.

  4. “The Chargers are coming to knock Peyton out of the playoffs!”

    And then what? They again lose at home after a bye week to the lowest seed team?
    Chargers are hopeless tools who continue to lead their clueless fans down the same path year after year.
    The rest of the nation watches and laughs.
