This Vincent Jackson drama will be the biggest story of the off-season until he actually signs his name on the contract for some team. Here is the latest notes from Kevin Acee:
The Chargers are believed to be willing to pay Jackson between $10-11 million annually on a five-year deal, but they are inclined to let the market be set by others. Jackson is expected to receive more in offers from other teams.
At least we met with Vincent’s people to share the situation with them. We wany him back, but we are not going to give him the money like other teams might be willing to do.
$10-11 million per would get him around the Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson range in terms of salary. That was the price tag for him a couple of seasons ago, but I think the cost has gone up like the gas prices. Tampa, Minnesota, Cleveland and all the other teams are pulling out their checkbooks now and ready to bring him in for more money.
