Vincent Jackson Unlikely to be Franchise Tagged


According to SportingNews, it is unlikely that Vincent Jackson will receive the franchise tag. This means that on March 13th, Vincent Jackson will be an Unrestricted Free Agent and available for any team, including the San Diego Chargers, to extend an offer to. It had been speculated that if the Chargers were to use their Franchise Tag, it would be to retain their Pro Bowl receiver, Vincent Jackson. If the Chargers lose Jackson, they will have a big hole at the receiver position to fill, and I don’t think management feels that Malcolm Floyd had the ability to be the teams go to receiver for a whole season.

In addition to the news regarding Vincent Jackson, the San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl guard, Kris Dielman, was forced to retire after having another serious concussion during the game against the New York Jets last season. He made the decision so that he can live a healthy life and not risk another serious head injury if he continued to play.
