V-Jax can play in Week 5, if traded

The NFL just announced that Vincent Jackson may play in Week 5 if he is traded by 4:00 PM (Eastern) next Wed., Sept. 22. This, per an agreement reached between the NFL and the players union. Jackson will have to serve the full six-game suspension if he isn't dealt before the deadline.

This is huge news, in that is resolves a thorny impediment to Jackson's mobility, and it puts a timeline on a potential move. If the Pro Bowl WR is going to play, and San Diego is going to get any value from him, they'd better make a deal fast.

The Vikings are at the top of the rumor mill, and there's no doubt that they and at least a few other teams have already started talking possible terms with the Chargers. A trade cannot be consummated any earlier than Friday at 4:00 PM.

Frankly, there aren't many teams that couldn't use a player of Jackson's ability. If he's available in your league, scoop him up now. Week 5 will be here before you know it, and there's a good chance he'll be the leading receiver for whichever team ponies up for him.


  1. Some one wants to trade me

    V-Jax/Chester Taylor or Michael Bush


    Lee Evans and C.J Spiller

    My first two wr are solid Austin and Wayne.

    Would you do the trade? If so what back would you take Taylor or Bush?

  2. I wouldn't. Not yet. Maybe if V-Jax lands somewhere really good. My advice is not to spend a lot to get V-Jax, but definitely pick him up if he's a free agent.

  3. would you drop S. Smith (NY), Sims-Walker or Naanee for him?

  4. my starters are Nicks, Maclin, & Collie

  5. Seth, I would drop Naanee for him.
