San Diego notes
By Bill Williamson
The NFL Network has reported unhappy San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson is working out with Washington quarterback Donovan McNabb in Arizona. This is interesting because Washington is one of the teams that could show real interest in Jackson.
Still, as the report pointed out, not too much should be read into this. NFL players work out together in the summer all the time, especially in Arizona. If Jackson wasn’t having issues with San Diego, he and McNabb would still be working out together.
However, this pairing could become vital if Washington does want to pursue Jackson. The team’s brass can get a feel for him from its quarterback. So, in a summer where news on Jackson is plentiful, this is, at least, noteworthy if not overly telling.
Meanwhile, the agent for disposed safety Kevin Ellison denied a DEA probe into the Chargers’ prescription drug practices has nothing to do with his client. Ellison was caught with 100 Vicodin pills in May. He was cut this month and is now with Seattle.
