When Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was slapped with a restricted free agent tender last year, he held out half the season.
Now that he’s been offered the much more lucrative franchise tag, Jackson is cool with a one-year contract.
“Another year in San Diego would be awesome. I’m happy to be in San Diego,” Jackson told Chris Jenkins of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I’d be happy to spend my whole career here. I’m just gonna make the best of the situation.”
Jackson doesn’t regret holding out last year, but he doesn’t sound like a guy who will skip any games in 2011. (Or at least he won’t skip any more games than every other player in the league.)
