Chargers’ Wide Receiver Jackson Turned Down Again

August 23, 2010 |

Vincent Jackson wants a new contract.

The Seattle Seahawks want Vincent Jackson.

Vincent Jackson wants a five-year, fifty million dollar contract with 30 million dollars in guaranteed money.

The Seattle Seahawks love T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

Jackson, who joins fellow hold-out Marcus McNeill on the Chargers’ Roster Exempt list desires a contract that would make the six-year veteran among the four highest paid wide receivers in the league, according to Kevin Acee of The San Diego-Union Tribune.

Jackson’s asking price seems a bit too steep for Seattle to accept, while the second round draft pick that the Chargers are asking for in return isn’t an issue at all.

Being placed on the Roster Exempt list requires that a player miss the first three games after he signs.

Jackson is already suspended for the first three games of the season because of his DUI arrests and driving on a suspended license charge.

If the disgruntled wideout signs a tender by September 4, his suspension and games missed due to his Roster Exempt status could be served concurrently.
