Report: Rams won't pursue Vincent Jackson
By Bill Williamson
NFL.com is reporting that the that the St. Louis Rams is not interested in San Diego holdout receiver Vincent Jackson when he becomes eligible to be traded Monday. Tuesday is the trade deadline.
The Rams had previously been interested in Jackson and there was speculation that perhaps St. Louis would have renewed interest after losing Mark Clayton for the season because of a knee injury. Minnesota, Jackson’s most ardent pursuer, is likely out because it traded for Randy Moss. Seattle and Washington could emerge again as suitors, but with the high asking price and small time frame, the chances of Jackson being swapped is slim. Jackson is expected to stay away from the Chargers for the entire season.
San Diego added receiver Richard Goodman from the practice squad. Expect him to be added to the struggling coverage unit.
The Kansas City Star has an interesting take on Dwayne Bowe, who once again betrayed the Chiefs’ in a critical moment. I think Bowe better figure it out or he will be a former Chief in 2011.
