The RUMORS are flying everywhere!
The main rumor is focused on the Minnesota Vikings landing the star receiver. The Vikings have struggled out the gate with an 0-2 start and Brett Favre has struggled to find an open receiver in both games. The asking price raises every time that Brett Favre throws an interception or incompletion.
The San Diego Chargers should just ask for Sidney Rice in return. They would then trade one star receiver for another. Sidney Rice would be available to play in the middle of the season and would add another offensive weapon to the Chargers team that is still looking for that big play receiver. Vincent Jackson would bring his pro bowl level talent starting in week 5 for the Vikings. Do the Vikings want a receiver that is coming back from hip surgery in week 9 or would they want a pro bowl receiver that is waiting to get back on the field in week 5?
More than likely, a trade for Jackson and Rice will never happen! The rumored asking price of multiple high draft picks probably won’t happen either. The Vincent Jackson drama will be continued till tomorrow and we will all find out his fate. The Vikings seem desperate and AJ Smith is amazingly stubborn. Tomorrow is the deadline for the window that the NFL issued for a trade of Vincent Jackson that would allow him to play in week 5 of the season. We will see if Minnesota and AJ Smith can agree on anything and also see if there is another team that sneaks in for the steal.
