PFT has just posted it also.

Report: Redskins interested in Vincent Jackson | ProFootballTalk.com

I wonder what we would have to give up for Jackson?

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

It's okay everyone, this time it will be different. A WR who is a hold out, will come to Washington, get paid and still care about winning.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

I think we'd have to give up quite a lot to get the Chargers to part with this guy. The Chargers hold all the negotiating leverage with Jackson since he's currently a restricted free agent. They know that as long as they retain his rights, they can pretty much force him to play this year for the tender amount.

So for them to want to give up such a playmaking WR who they'll be able to keep for a low salary... you're talking a lot of compensation to tear him away from them.

Think about their receiving options, too. Behind Jackson they have a promising young guy in Malcolm Floyd, but I think moving him would leave them without adequate WR talent. That's not something you'd like to do when your offense is already carrying you to the playoffs.

I'm thinking this won't get done because Allen and Shanahan will balk at the what's sure-to-be-high asking price. But if I'm wrong and we can wrangle him loose for a low price, by all means go for it. Just don't pull a Vinny and give up a 1st.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

I'd be salivating if we could get him here. But I'm in line with Schneed's line of thinking in the above post. I wouldn't want him if the asking price was too big either.

I'm already daydreaming of McNabb bombing it away to Jackson

Can you Imagine Jackson, Thomas, Moss, Cooley and Davis.

Now that would make us a SB contender REAL FAST!

Especially if they put in escalators in his contract. Brandon Marshalls contract might be worth a lot but he'll net very little if he doesn't-

A) Behave himself

and

B) Perform on the field

Personally I'd be all for a contract like that. I will admit that it's a scary proposition adding a 17.2 ypc receiver to an offense with a Pro-Bowl QB (who now has a line to protect him) but we have to pace ourselves. Theres a good chance this deal won't go through.

NOOOO!! Stay away from the list. The list is dangerous, the list is bad luck. Lion fans had a list earlier this decade that went "WHOA!!! Rogers, Williams, Williams, Pollard, Harrington!!"

Good point Dirtbag.. What would be the asking price anyway? Some say Haynesworth, but when I first heard the story on ESPN radio, they were saying SD won't trade for AH.

No way San Diego accepts a straight up trade for Haynesworth seeing as they are a dedicated 3-4 team. You might be looking at a second round pick but knowing Allen we would get back something like a 5th or 6th round pick.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

Shit I have mixed feelings about this. We need this guy for sure, but San Diego is going to want multiple first rounders for this guy unless we can get a straight up trade and give them Haynesworth.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

Keep in mind that Jackson most likely has a suspension coming up from multiple DUI's.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

What this also means is that Shanny and the FO have little confidence in our young Wr corp.

No way Big D. Jackson is at least one first rounder for SD to part ways with him.

Re: Report: Redskins are pursuing Vincent Jackson

I personally wouldn't go for the trade if I was Allen. You need to keep your first rounders to build for the long term. Jackson is definitely an upgrade to our WR corp. Our newbies must not be cutting the mustard.
