Morning Dump

Sorry for some of the formatting issues with the pictures on the site recently, we will be having a whole new layout released soon and this is part of the transition stage for it.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is out on Hawaii this week getting ready for his second Pro Bowl. He’s been with the team since being selected in the second round of the 2005 draft out of Northern Colorado and would like to remain there for the long-term.

While reports suggest A.J. Smith now is “comfortable” exploring a long-term deal for Vincent Jackson, the Chargers wide receiver said he has yet to speak to the general manager himself.

For the Chiefs, the addition of Poe would help shore up the middle of its defensive line, and if they get a player who can play somewhat close to the level of the Baltimore Ravens’ Haloti Ngata that would be a real coup. As for the Chargers, drafting Konz fills a need for the team by improving the offensive line. Many of Philip Rivers’ problems came from working behind a weak offensive line. Plus, the team is losing its current centers to free agency.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Chargers GM A.J. Smith showed a little bit of excitement as he got an up close look at pass rushers like Melvin Ingram of South Carolina and Courtney Upshaw of Alabama.

The Indianapolis Colts have announced that Chuck Pagano will be the team’s new head coach.  But Chuck Pagano won’t be available to the media until 3:00 p.m. ET on Thursday.

Eli Manning goes to the Super Bowl next week looking for his second championship ring, which might be the perfect ending to a season that began with owners and players at war.

    If they don’t pay Vincent Jackson can we take that as proof that AJ can’t take us to the next level and fire him? How many years have they left this man hanging in the breeze waiting for a long term deal. You know what he can do and how he stretches a defense. Why can’t we get a deal done BEFORE he hits the open market and you either pay him a ton of cash or lose him outright?
