ESPN’s Adam Schefter also already gone record to say that he see’s the Chargers using their franchise tag on Vincent Jackson during the offseason but as we have already mentioned, players can contest the franchise tag because of there isn’t a CBA agreement in place.
The franchise tag for WR’s should be in the ballpark of $10 million in 2011 but that’s a rough estimate.
Jackson was able to showcase his talent in only a few games this season and considering that top ten wide receivers are hard to come by, he’ll have no trouble finding interested teams. Some of the teams that have the biggest need at receiver would include: the Carolina Panthers, the Cleveland Browns, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the St. Louis Rams and the Washington Redskins. Jackson has been linked to the Seahawks and Bills in the past but both teams have other issues that appear to be more pressing.
