No Vincent Jackson deal
By Bill Williamson
Jonathan Feinsod, one of Vincent Jackson's agents, said his client would not be traded from San Diego by the Wednesday 4 p.m. ET deadline.
Feinsod said he had deals done for Jackson, but the Chargers would not agree on trade compensation.
“We had multiple offers and the Chargers squashed them all,” Feinsod said.
This is the second time this month San Diego turned down deals for Jackson, according to Feinsod.
It’s been reported that the Vikings offered a second-round pick in 2011 and another conditional pick for Jackson.
Feinsod ripped San Diego general manager A.J. Smith for not making a deal.
“Archie Manning had it right,” Feinsod said in reference to Manning not wanting his son Eli to play for the Chargers after he was drafted by the team in 2004. “They call (Smith) the Lord of No Rings for a reason.”
Yes, folks, it has gotten personal.
The Chargers can now trade Jackson on Oct. 18 or Oct. 19 before the NFL deadline. I don’t think these comments will inspire Smith to make a deal. If Jackson is not traded, he will likely sit out the entire season.
