There are about 8 teams that are expected to seriously pursue Vincent Jackson according to Kevin Acee. AND of course the “mystery team” that could push the price tag out of the Chargers reach. Do we just add this “mystery team” in all these situations, just in case he signs with someone we didn’t think about?

Here is my guess on the 8 teams that Acee was suggesting:

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Chicago Bears
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • Washington Redskins
  • New England Patriots
  • Buffalo Bills
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • St Louis Rams

Did I miss any? Of course our San Diego Chargers are in the mix also.

I am pretty sure I have heard a connection with VJ on each one of those teams. I am also pretty sure that we will turn our love for VJ to extreme HATE if he went on to join the New England Patriots and Tom Brady. Then that HATE will be pointed in the direction of AJ Smith and somehow Norv Turner.
