The latest in the ever interesting Vincent Jackson sags comes from Henry Lake of KFAN radio in Minneapolis. Lake tweets that his sources have suggested that the Vikings are looking into trading for Jackson.
The possibility of the Vikings exploring a trade for Jackson at this point seems to be a fairly believable scenario only because the Vikings passing offense looked sluggish in their season opener versus the New Orleans Saints. Favre did find tight-end Visanthe Shiancoe for the teams only touchdown in the second quarter. The Vikings struggles could be because the team has only had a few weeks to get Brett Favre and the receiving core on the same page but that’s the price you pay when Favre is your quarterback.
The Vikings window for winning may be the smallest among the usual list of suitors for Vincent Jackson. There is always going to be pressure on the Redskins to win because of the money that they invest in their team year in and year out but Mike Shanahan will not likely be on the hot-seat after one bad year. Seattle could still be a possibility since their receiving core has Mike Williams as their No. 1 receiver.
Jackson’s upcoming arbitration case will no doubt have a large influence on a possible deal between the Chargers and a possible trading partner.
