Vincent Jackson Update: Chargers yet to find deal to their liking

San Diego Union Tribune - [Full Article]

There is talk ongoing between the Chargers and other teams about Vincent Jackson, but not nearly as much as there is going on elsewhere.

As rumors fly -- including one prevalent one that Jackson was actually being flown to Minnesota on the Vikings owner's private plane -- the disgruntled receiver remains firmly in the Chargers' control.

His agents have the parameters of a deal done with at least one team and have outlined deals with other clubs, but the Chargers have yet to find a deal to their liking, sources said.

The most active suitor is, indeed, the Vikings. And they are the most likely to get Jackson. But there is at least one other team on the line.

In order to be able to play before the seventh week of the season, Jackson must be traded by 1 p.m. (PT) Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: 

It sounds like a team is going to have to up their compensation to at least a 2nd round pick in order to get the Chargers to bite. The Chargers don't sound overly pressed to make a deal, and would just as soon hang on to Jackson and see what happens. We will cover this story as it develops over the next 24 hours.
