Cole suggests that the Chargers are asking for a second-round pick and a third-round pick for Jackson. He also adds that the Vikings have offered a second-round pick and a conditional draft pick that depend on whether the team signs him to a one-year contract of a multi-year deal.
The Chargers are using Miami’s trade for Brandon Marshall to base their demands upon. Miami sent two second-round picks to the Broncos during the offseason but the Dolphins had a multi-year deal in place Marshall which helped to justify the two second-round picks.
The Vikings have been reported to have reached a one-year deal worth $6 million dollars for Jackson but there has been another team that has been negotiating with Jackson.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams have decided to pass on pursuing Jackson. The Rams felt that exhausting their resources for a wide-receiver with off-the-field issues wasn’t in their best interest.
The Chargers do not appear to be willing to adjust their asking price Jackson which is making a potential trade seem less and less likely. Unless the Vikings decide to give in and trade the draft picks, it doesn’t look good for Jackson getting out of San Diego.
