Vincent Jackson's primary suitor looks to be the Vikings

In five days, a hearing will be held in New York to determine whether Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson will miss six games or three games if is traded during his three-game suspension for violation of the substance-abuse policy.  The NFL believes he should; the NFLPA believes he shouldn’t.

Either way, word is spreading that the Vikings are the team that hopes to swing a deal for Jackson, if the ultimate absence is only three games.

Last Saturday, an unnamed franchise worked out a one-year deal with Jackson’s agents, who then could not work out a trade with the Chargers.  That team has not been identified.  On Friday, our pal Henry Lake of KFAN in Minneapolis said via Twitter that the Vikings are making a play for Jackson.  Though all concerned persons and entities are keeping quiet on this one, we’ve done some digging and we believe that Lake is right — and that the Vikings are the team that nearly traded for Jackson last week.

Based on the Vikings’ performance on offense against the Saints on Thursday night, the Vikings surely could use him.

    Vincent Jackson is overrated, so yes…he would be a perfect fit on the Vikings.
    PurplePeopleBeaters continues his Internet conquest of naming himself after the Vikings, posting on nothing but Viking articles, and claiming to not care about the Vikings.
    Makes sense right?

  2. Desperation move by the Queens.
    Thursday night was a foreshadowing of the rest of the season

  3. Mmmh, trading for Jackson makes limited sense if Sidney Rice comes back after W6 from PUP – that means 5 games for the Vikes.
    So, either the Vikes are uber-desperate, or Rice won’t be available directly after W6.

  4. You could put Jerry Rice in his prime out there, Don Hutson in his prime, and what the heck, Percy Harvin as your 3rd, but if the idiot QB can’t get them the ball or he throws it to the other team… Well, what does it matter?!?!?

  5. Favre would love to throw to that 6’5 beast. Get Rice back along with Shank,Percy and Cam. and you have big trouble for secondaries…go get him MN!

  6. Doesn’t matter. Favre doesn’t have enough time to throw the ball anyway. The Vikings are about to see their grand plans crumble beneath them. Thursday’s game was just the beginning. The defense didn’t really impress and the offense could only really run the ball.

    Vikings are an easy target.

  8. VJ would be a great addition for the Vikes. Berrian is subpar, Rice out. They need a guy with some wheels that can catch.

  9. Just bring Moss back home. Please! He obviously wants out of NE and i beleive he wants to finish his career with the vikings. Plus, we all know how much him and Favre like eachother. Hes in the last year of his contract so the Patriots would probably deal him. We have plenty of quality 2nd string Defensive lineman and linebackers which could be used for trading and also draft picks.

  10. He’s yours Minnesota – for a 3rd round pick in 2011 and a 1st round draft pick in 2012. Don’t think for one second San Diego is going to give him away. AJ Smith would rather rot in hell than back down.

  11. Damn I remember just a few years ago this slob couldn’t catch anything and everyone just alked about how talented he was and this and that o how things change

  12. He’ll be the best receiver on the team, but he won’t have the reason he is good with him–Philip Rivers, a vast upgrade over gray beard!!!

    Our defense barely got to him, their line did a pretty decent job in my opinion..

  15. V. Jackson is a drunk turd. One more stirke and he’s looking at a loooong suspension from Mr. Goodell. There’s a reason he hasn’t garnered interest from more NFL teams….

  16. Yep, this would make sense. This is truly becoming an all or nothing year for the Vikings. Go ahead and mortgage the future of the franchise in order to keep your lord and master happy.
    Go Pack Go!

  17. Vikes need to get this deal done! This is the best news ive had all day! I was just talking to my friends about how we should cut Berrian and sign Vincent Jackson. Once Favre gets his timing back with his wideouts which should hapen sometime between now and the bye week the rest of the league better watch out. We’re commin…. we’re commin!

  18. “Based on the Vikings’ performance on offense against the Saints on Thursday night, the Vikings surely could use him.”
    Really? They could use another offensive player unfamiliar with the system who has not practiced with the team all offseason? I kind of thought having TOO MANY of that sort of player was the problem on Thursday.
    Well, that and a coach who doesn’t belong in the NFL.

  19. He is over rated and now wants to be overpaid. He hasn’t been in training camp so his timing will not be sync, not that it matters, Favre isn’t in sync with any of the WR’s. So in other words, he is perfect for the Vikings.
    Now if Jackson realizes how desperate the Vikings are, he can hold out for Favre-type money. No, not 16 million but rather $3 more than anyone else is willing to pay the bum.
    What the Vikings don’t recognize is that they don’t need an overrated, soon to be overpaid WR on their roster, they already have one in Berrian.

  20. Don’t you know this would give Pervy Harvin some serious wood.
    So the Vikes mortgage next years draft and salary cap because they can’t wait on Rice to return to the active roster….
    Let’s count ’em ….Primadonas at QB, RB, WR, WR, WR.
    Yep, sounds combustible to me.

  21. You could put Jerry Rice in his prime out there, Don Hutson in his prime, and what the heck, Percy Harvin as your 3rd, but if the idiot QB can’t get them the ball or he throws it to the other team… Well, what does it matter?!?!?

    Agreed. Farve’s fastball is clearly gone.

    You are a football know nothing. The D held that scoring machine to 2 tds in their house. Bet your ass they ran the ball, AD is ready to go. As far as the pass game,took Favre a couple games last season to get going. Bet you they throw all over the Finns at home ….

  23. come on people, really? i can understand people talking trash about the vikes for different reason and also that there are simply a lot of vikings haters out there, but some of the things people say are absolutely stupid. if VJ doesn’t get six games he would be a dynamite score and probably the reason vikes did not bite on housh. he is exactly the kind of receiver that favre loves and at this point we could probably sign him for a year for about 7mill…which is around what we are paying that looooooooossssseeeeeerrrr bernard berrian. those of you that think we would not be good with this addition are crazy! VJ is a MONSTER! how does everyone like the sound of facing VJ, sid, percy, shank and BB as our four come playoff time? pretty sure that gives favre a pretty good spread…oh and BTW we still have the eternal beast AD in the backfield. it would be a risk, and a gamble but we do need the receiver help till sid gets back (which is seeming like it is gonna be later then expected) and im never gonna complain about having three pro-bowl receivers going to the end of the season.

  24. Shomeurtds…Vikings defense didn’t really impress? At the Superdome in a game where they were set up to lose against the highest scoring team from last year? And they didn’t impress by keeping them to 14 points? Ok, who is your team? Packers I assume. You think your team would have kept Saints to 14 points???

  25. The defense didn’t really impress
    Which is why they held the leagues highest scoring offense to 14 points at home.
    God, Packer fans are dumb.

  27. Hey ShowmeuerTD’s, Shomeeurlogic. The Vikes pass defense is hurting, not a full strength and they hold the Whodats to only 14 points and the defense didn’t impress you? As far as they only could run, so what? Basically the game plan was to run the ball and except for brain cramping away from that strategy, they accomplished what the wanted to do and that was because the passing game isn’t there yet, but it will come together.

  28. The Vikes are a dumb organization. Sign Jackson for millions, then who the hell throws him the ball? Tarvaris? They are really dumb.

    Both teams looked a little shaky to start the season.. I was impressed with AD, had Chilly kept feeding him the rock I think he would of broke off a long one.. I was getting nervous, the guy is a beast..
    Good luck to your Vikes Pervy!!

  30. “Once Favre gets his timing back with his wideouts which should hapen sometime between now and the bye week the rest of the league better watch out. We’re commin…. we’re commin!”
    Yeah but at the bye week the vikings will be 0-8 so its a rather moot point. I think people in minni are waking up to the fact that an offseason and preseason of training is not just some little hassle that vets don’t require. I keep wondering why a vikings fan would be excited by the prospect of signing this guy. Another guy who hasn’t had a preseason or any work with the team. Also, the chargers are a super bowl contender, don’t you find it the slightest bit suspicious that they don’t want him when they are knocking on the doorstep? I don’t even see how javon walker wasn’t kept, its not like vincent is much better.

  31. Vikings should work out a one year deal with VJ, pay the chargers fair compensation and then immediately trade him to the pats for moss straight-up. Pats get a potentially viable and younger deep threat assuming they could keep him and they get rid of a potential problem child that is already making noise. The vikes would get back the receiver they should have never let go in the first place, favre gets his dream receiver, and the unfortunate fans get to go through 1 more year of favre watch when the vikings fall excruciatingly short… one… more… time

  32. “The Vikes are a dumb organization. Sign Jackson for millions, then who the hell throws him the ball? Tarvaris? They are really dumb.”
    So much Favre butt hurt in here.

  33. Desperation move by the Queens.

    ************************************
    How is this desperation. The Vikings are without a #1 receiver and they haven’t (offense) hasn’t practiced all year yet… It’s been one game, holy Hannah you’re retarded! Have fun beating your overweight wife tonight

  34. 0-8?
    I know math can be hard sometimes. Their bye week is week 4 troll. You can keep telling yourself they will be that bad if it makes you feel better. But, you are clearly delusional if you believe that.

  35. You can tell the quality of the posters in here are getting worse when JimmySmith’s remarks are the ones making the most sense.
    Too bad this site didn’t have a rating system for posts where the ones most downvoted would disappear. But then Vikings articles would have like 6 comments each, and we wouldn’t get to hear any new derogatory nicknames for the team.

    Thanks, been a Saints fan and season ticket holder for about 2 decades, been through all the rough times. My wife is a Vike fan so I watch all ya’lls games… For many many seasons I found myself rooting for the Vikes when the Saints were out of the running (too often)..
    Have a good one..
    btw, Saints fans are good folk, internet message boards speak for a very very small percentage of fans. And usually the mouthy ones are either young or plainly take the sport too far..

  38. It has already been established that THE RAVENS were the team that made a play for Vincent Jackson… but realized the Chargers were deliusional in their trade demands for a player that was not going to play for them until Week 11 anyway. The Ravens signed Houshmandzadeh for pretty much nothing and said “good luck with that” to the Chargers.
    But it was the Ravens, not the Vikings, that worked out a deal with Jackson.
    Either way, after seeing how bad Berrian and Harvin are… it’s definitely the Vikings who want Jackson now.

    LOL- stop yelling toughguy. They call him AD for “All Day”.
    He’s had that nickname up here since his rookie year.

  46. This guy is a beast and if he stays clean he will definitely help them. As a Saints fan I don’t want to see this happen but with Jackson, Harvin, and Rice (when he comes back) the Vikes passing game will be exceptional. Of course this is if Favre stays upright. The big issue with this guy has been his behaviour on and off the field. Knowing AJ Smith he’ll do everything he can to make Jackson miserable by setting an unrealistic price. He likes to show his power and arrogance. One of the most egotistical GM’s in the game.

  48. When the Vikings traded for Jared Allen, he was one more DUI away from being suspended for a year. I didn’t like that move until I learned after the trade that he would be clear of that punishment if he would just make it to September of that same year without any more incidents. He did, and has stayed out of trouble for the two years since then. If he gets in trouble now, he won’t face the long suspension. I’d like to know how long Jackson has to go to reach the same status.

  52. To the guy who says this deal doesn’t make sense if Rice returns this year — there’s a good chance he won’t return. Childress has already said he could still be put on season ending IR. They just won’t be able to make that call unti they’ve had time to measure his recovery progress OR… get a suitable replacement (like Jackson). Even if Rice DOES return, I like that lineup a great deal — Rice and Jackson as the wideouts, Harvin in the slot, and Camarillo as the #4? That’s rediculously good. That’s THREE Pro Bowl WR’s plus one of the most sure-handed WR’s in the league coming off the bench, and they’re all YOUNG. Bring that on. I’d love to see it.

It’s unbelieveable how many stupid people have commented so far…where to begin? packman1275, AD is actually his nickname for All Day…do some research before sounding like a MORON, ok? rmac…did you see last year when Favre look bad the first 2 games of the season? He’ll be fine very shortly but thanks for the input…we’re all dumber for having heard from you. gbfanforever…0-8 after 3 games is hard to see happening but if you say it that must be true. The Chargers don’t want to pay him it’s not that they don’t want him, cheesehead. Just realize the Vikings aren’t at full strength yet playing on the road against the Super Bowl champs losing by 5 points…wow what a disgrace…lol. Wait until Favre is warmed up, Sidney Rice and Cedric Griffin and Chris Cook are back and if you add Vincent Jackson and put Harvin back in the slot where he belongs…look out rest of the league.

  57. @ PerryMason I’m 42 years old and yes I’ve heard of him and I also saw him play the other night. He is a Tired Old Man You Tool!

  62. I said it was the Vikings 2 weeks ago……for those that are talking trash, I can read between the lines quite easily…..it’s the last thing you want the vikings to do. VJax in a couple of weeks and then Rice a couple more after……..the Vikings will be primed for the playoffs and will be heavily favored.

    Anyway, I GUARANTEE he will have more than 7 int’s this year and not as many touchdowns as last year…Bernard Berrian? HA HA….Pervert Harvin?? HA HA…..Greg Camarillo? HA HA HA …….They don’t have a receiver worth a CRAP! Even the Bears have better receivers than that and that is not saying much!!
    Enjoy the playoffs watching the Saint, Packers, Cowboys, etc……………..

  64. Puzzling if true…
    Vincent Jackson is not really a burner wide-out. He’s a very talented pass catcher in the mold of Jermichael Finley, a physical, athletic tight end type with great hands. But unlike Finley, Jackson usually gets tackled or falls down after making a catch. The Vikings need a true burner wide-out. Jackson doesn’t come close to fitting that role. Why not go after Moss who not only fits role but can play immediately?

    The Vikings are going to overpay for Jackson, then not get to use him for multiple weeks of the season. By the time he learns the offense according to Brett, Rice will be back and ready to play. There’s only one football, so good luck getting all of your receivers touches and keeping everyone happy. Face it, the Vikings are desperate and want a quick fix, but throwing money at a one year wonder receiver isn’t very smart.

  75. DRAGONLEE, Favre is warmed up, he just needs his receivers to make plays, it’s going to cost a first round pick at least to get Jackson, so if they want him they should get him. I think the Chargers shouldnt pay him like he wants to be paid, is Jackson good yes, BUT is he great, who knows. i think Floyd is a good receiver for the Chargers too. As for Jackson, if the Vikings want him, do a deal.

  76. I think the hardest part of making this happen is going to be AJ Smith. He’s going to want more than market value. He’s so vindictive, he’ll make Jackson sit before he let’s him go for anything close to fair.

  77. @ PerryMason you need to find a new team! The so called “Vikes” are going nowhere with “chilly” as their coach.

    Puzzling if true…
    Vincent Jackson is not really a burner wide-out. He’s a very talented pass catcher in the mold of Jermichael Finley, a physical, athletic tight end type with great hands. But unlike Finley, Jackson usually gets tackled or falls down after making a catch. The Vikings need a true burner wide-out. Jackson doesn’t come close to fitting that role. Why not go after Moss who not only fits role but can play immediately?
    ———————————————-
    I agree Moss is the better WR but VJax led the league in YAC last year for your information. He also led the league in yards per catch which is huge. Had he better thrown to as many times as Andre Johnson, and caught the same percentage of passes as he did, he would’ve blown A. Johnson away in total yards by a WR and TD’s becuz he had more TD catches than Johnson with almost half the targets.

  79. footballrulz…
    LOL! Sorry dude. I just happened to read that passage as I read all the back and forth about who started what between the Vikings and Saints fans. I felt it appropriate. Don’t worry, I’ll be back to attacking the obnoxious Packer fans in no time myself!! They just make it so easy!!!

  80. Hey Packman…. how about you wait until the Packers beat the Vikings before you start getting stupid?
    But just for argument’s sake, let’s assume that the Vikings do acquire Vincent Jackson. So when Rice returns, based on last year’s production, the Viking’s top 2 recievers had more production than the Packer’s top 2, and the Viking’s 3, 4, and 5 recievers each individually matched the Packer’s 3 and 4 combined. But think whatever you need to think to keep yourself from beating your boyfriend….
    Oh, and BTW, the difference between the Vikings schedule and the Packers schedule is what again? I see an awful lot of good DTs making Rodgers run for his life…. That’s the real reason the Packers decided to go with Rodgers instead of Favre. They knew their interior line couldn’t stop a runny nose and they needed someone more mobile.

    Has any of the Three Stooges figured out yet who AD is?? HA HA…That is just too funny. All three of you must be about 10 years old.”
    Adrian Peterson has had the nickname “AD” since his days playing for Oklahoma. He was given the name after they said he could run “All Day”. Know your football before you try to talk shit on people. Go eat your cheese and STFU.

    @ Sacram3ntal: SUT THE F UP you stupid Viking Retard….One Loss and counting for the old bastard!!….Maybe Minnesota retards refer to him as AD (Almighty Dumbass) but to the rest of the NFL he’s AP…..MORON!!…..S tay in Minnesota where you belong and enjoy a season of missing the playoffs and watching ARod show everyone why he is now better than Favre!!
    ************************************
    What the sh** are you sqwaking about, princess?
    Go find any other post of mine; I guarantee I like Favre the Vikes even less than you, clown.
    I corrected you because 1.) you didnt know what in the **** you were talking about. and
    2.) you’re an annoying little turd.
    Stop making Packer fans look bad, you little jagoff.
    You’re like the Green n Gold version of Pervy *Harvin.

  83. I love all the idiots who thin the Vikings will be terrible because of 1 loss.
    Lets break it down.
    1. Favre looked terrible. Timing was off, no connection to WRs.
    2. The defense held the best offense to 14 points.
    3. AP ran all over the place in the 1st half, and for some reason, the coaching staff forgot about it in the 2nd half.
    I guess I’m the only person that remembers last year, when all 3 held true.
    The only difference is they played the Saints, not the Browns.
    As for VJack, if they sign him now, he isnt as far off as people think.
    I hope they sign him to at least a 2 year deal. He, along withh Rice and Percy will be the best 1-3 Wr corps in the league, with McNabb tossing to them.

  84. GBfanForever says:
    Yeah but at the bye week the vikings will be 0-8 so its a rather moot point.
    ________________-
    0-8 would be an amazing feat at the bye week, considering thwy will have only played 3 games.
    And Packman1275, AD stands for All Day, which he has been called for years. Have you ever watched a football game, pregame show, or even sportscenter? Or are you just truly this stupid?

  85. Actually, it’s neither “AD” or “AP”, it’s “PT” — as in “Part-Time”. The guy is in his 4th year, and he still can’t grasp blocking schemes enough to stay on the field on third downs.
    Part-Time Peterson. He’ll last another two years, then his game will start to fall off. But he is fun/exciting to watch.

    Only a true Green Bay Fudgepacker would believe that Karen Rodgers is now or will ever be better than Favre on his worst day!
    ___________________________________
    Anderson, arednose or whatever you are tyring to do with that moniker–
    get real dude–Rodgers has a very good chance of eclipsing Favre’s legacy at GB. Maybe not with NFL records because of Favre’s durability but I would almost bet that after their respective careers are over, Rodgers has more SB rings.
    brewdogg–just so you know, I’m a Packer fan. I’m just not a homer like some folks on here. And believe it or not, RC IV & Pervy are some of my favorite folks on here. Crazy, huh?
    Nite folks

  87. i know it’s week 1 and you homers are already making excuses. you defend favre about his inaccurate throws and the inconsistency of the wr’s but you brag about holding the saints to 14…….. if you goona make an excuse, know it will be used back at you. the saints were inconsistent as well. you brag about your great d and awesome offense, well, the saints d is largly accepted as being subpar compared to yours, so shouldn’t your d have held their o to less points than your o scored on their d?
    so vikes fans should understand…… if you blame the loss on “needing a few games to get rolling”, shouldn’t the saints need a few to get rolling as well?
    another idea for the vikes…….. aj is pissed at mcneil and vjax, why don’t they throw next years 1 at the superchargers for vjax and mcneal? it would shore your line and wr positions up. it would also get both of them out from aj’s thumb.

  88. The viking defense held? The viking d CAN’T HOLD CLEAN PEE IN A CUP! Literally, not just would they spill it on themselves, drink it, put it in a wizzinator and try to get through an airport, or like the Williams sisters, not even show up with clean stuff…
    The Saints shot themselves in the foot. Brees missed a few passes, Wrs. dropped some easy balls and too many penalties. Didn’t help that the kicker was rusty too…
    But the vikes “D” didn’t do anything and in the clutch the Saints had no problem pushing them around and slapping them around like little bitches to close out the game.
    Perhaps the vike fans should watch the whole game and not just turn it off after the first series when they thought the Saints were gonna kill ’em and then look at the box scored the next day? Yeah, I’ve watched that dome clear out plenty over the years like when the Pack BLANKED your butt 35-0 – gonna see a repeat real soon of that game!
    That’s cute Pervy, acting like a Saints fan and then a Pack fan… Nobody buys it.

  90. Some of you Packer fans need to get a life. Honestly. I’m not trying to talk trash, but all Packer fans say that Rodgers is the best QB in the league, but really, he’s not any better then Matt Leinart. Hasn’t won a playoff game, hasn’t won the division, hasn’t done jack really. Once he wins a playoff game, then come on here and talk. Also, teams should be very scared if they see Jackson, Rice, Harvin, Peterson, Favre, Shaincoe lined up on the field. Man, I don’t know how you could stop them. Our backups, Camarillo and Berrian, wow thats better then some people’s starting recievers. Once our defense gets Cedric and Cook back, damn we’re going to have a good team

  91. It is hilarious how all these little attention seeking Packer fans try to turn every story into a negative.
    Vikings are trying to add another pro bowl offensive weapon. Desperation..?
    You chumps reek of fear.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    This was from 2007 but you get the idea….he’s had the nickname for awhile. Not just in Minnesota……..
    Peterson’s nickname is A.D., which stands for his childhood moniker of All Day (as in, “he can run All Day”). A.D. announced his fantasy superstardom Sunday with an electrifying 224-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Bears, with the scores going for 67, 73 and 35 yards. Though just a rookie, Peterson leads the NFL with 607 rushing yards despite splitting carries with veteran Chester Taylor.
    Good call ‘football fan’ calling all us RETARDS and STUPID and MORONS.
    I say every time we see you post something on here Packman1275 we will ALL post ‘AD’ and that’s it. Just to remind you who are REAL football fans.

    He’s not a real football fan. He’s a Packers fan….
    That’s not to say that all Packers fans are like this. Some are really football fans. But I think this is a side affect of an entire region’s culture being wrapped up in a single sports entity. People like this nitwit are under the impression that every player on the Packers roster is the best in the league, and no other team has anyone who is worthy of sharing the field with them. Sadly, there is no hope for these people. The best you can do is try to show them exactly where they are at fault, although that is much like trying to get an autistic child to pay attention….

    No prob! I don’t have a problem with Packer fans. Just certain people who take it a little too far….. I don’t recall you posting anything that has irritated me yet. But such is not the same for all…. It’s the ones who have green-and-gold blinders on that really irritate me and draw my ire. You know the type, the ones who were saying a couple years ago that players like Barbre, Bigby, and Brandon Jackson were going to be PBers. You’re cool with me. 🙂

  95. vincent jackson is good, it has only been jackson and gates on that team for years as receiver options, he has been a big reason they have been considered a top offense and one of the best teams in the afc

    Vikings receivers are probably the worst in the league at this point. They need help badly.
    ——————————————
    Really….your telling me that the bucs,rams raiders,browns, titans, jaguars, bills, dolphins,steelers panthers have better overall wr cores than the vikes do right now please
    The saints D won that game, thed vikes D keep em in the game.

  97. This is a message for Adrian Peterson, I am sorry to inform you that your nickname since High School “AD”, will need to be changed to “AP”. Packman1275 said so. Please take it up with him and all of the other Packer fans when you see them on Oct 24 and Nov 21. I hope you can bring Vincent Jackson with you. Oh BTW the Vikings D may want to pay attention to this A-Rod fellow, but I’m sure they will have plent of time to hunt now that he has no run game, wait did they have a run game? Its a good thing they have that TE that everyone has been stroking lets just hope he makes it that long. Oh and for those of you waitin for “the old man” He’s comming. 0-8 I’ll take that bet. waht Odds are you giving?

  98. The fact that the Vikings appear to be the only team in pursuit of Jackson makes perfect sense.
    Afterall, considering that the last asking price I saw was a 1st and 3rd round pick, is there any other team in the NFL that would be stupid enough to part with that much in order to sign a player to only a one year contract?
    If the Chargers are sticking with that asking price, and the Vikings are stupid enough to accept it, then I’d say this trade would rank right up there with the Herschel Walker trade.
    I hope they pull the trigger on this one!! 🙂

  99. i don’t believe there is a snowball’s chance in hell that this happens. sd will not move him.
