Default Seahawks/Chargers talking VJax trade, wants more $ than Marshall

http://www.nctimes.com/sports/footba...3966ecef9.html

Quote:
The Chargers have given the Seattle Seahawks permission to speak with receiver Vincent Jackson about a long-term contract, according to a source familiar with the situation who requested anonymity. A Seahawks spokesman confirmed the accuracy of that information.

The Chargers granted permission roughly two weeks ago as an essential prelude to a trading the disgruntled restricted free agent, who is withholding services in search of a long-term deal.

While the source said Friday that the Seahawks have spoken with Jackson's agent, Neil Schwartz, little has come of it and no trade is imminent.

Jackson's camp has set the bar high, demanding a contract in excess of the four-year, $46.5 million deal with $24 million in guarantees that Brandon Marshall signed with Miami. That price is too high for the Seahawks.

Denver received a second-round draft pick for Marshall, and the Chargers are likely looking for similar compensation for a receiver who is no longer in their plans.

There is no way he should be paid that much when I can name more then a handful of receivers that are far better then this guy.

At least he won't have to worry about showing up to a playoff game drunk in Seattle. They won't be in the playoffs any time soon. What a clown.

As a Chargers fan it does bother me a little but let's not make too much of a big deal out of it. Jackson thinks he's Randy Moss after 1 good season, truth is he's average it's his size that gives him that little extra, but Rivers made Jackson. Wherever Jackson lands I am SURE his numbers will go down.
