Vincent Jackson once thought his time with the San Diego Chargers was finished.
But now it doesn’t look like that will be the case, at least not for another season. Jackson, who said out the majority of the season, before coming back in late October, now expects the Chargers to put the franchise tag on him. That means he’ll play with the Chargers for one more year.
Jackson will make roughly $10 million dollars under the franchise tag. He refused to accept a one-year deal worth $3.2 million, before the NFLPA forced Jackson and fellow holdout Logan Mankins to return to their teams.
Chargers GM A.J. Smith has already stated that he’s not committed to signing Jackson to a long-term contract. Smith said “likely will pay Jackson for 2011 and then let him walk.”
The Chargers will get a draft pick when Jackson leaves.
