Vincent Jackson Waiting To Be Traded

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that the San Diego Chargers and the Minnesota Vikings are at an impasse over the asking price for Vincent Jackson.

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.
