NO!!! But what about my team on Madden. Doesn't Bruce realize we need like 10 pro bowlers at reciever. Look at how well it's working out for the Cowboys.

Someone is now going to suffer from mental masturbatory withdrawal.

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

He is returning to accure his season and get the hell out of San Diego.

Yes they may hit him with the Franchise Tag, but again he doesn't have to sign it.

It would really be a DICK move for AJ to do that come Feb. but it is the risk VJ is taking. From what we have heard he is actually being pressured by the NFLPA to do so. I guess we will all see how it plays out.

How much time will he miss now? He has his suspension, but what about those extra games he had to miss? Will he be back by week 11 of this year or later?

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

The players association asked him to join the team as well.

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

It won't be over till we hear VJ has signed with another team.

Why? cause we all know he's not happy, and He's only returning so he can be a FA next year. What happens if he shows up and .... oh lets say .... drops a few balls? especially catchable balls? will he continue to play or be benched?

Yes the saga is over for the moment but I could imagine him conveniently dropping balls so the team wouldn't be happy with him. Especially since he is not happy about going against his word where he said he would not be back and he could sit out the whole season. Now he looks like a fool. He doesn't come back the team still ownes him and has some leverage as to where he goes so basically he had to come back if he wanted to be free next yr.

Maybe he fakes an injury?

His punishment was 3 games not being with the team. Thats over. Then there was 4 games he could show up and practice but not play on Sun.

I thought they have been counting already because he's technically still a Charger. The mere fact that he has not shown up to practice is an issue between him and San Diego and I don't think has anything to do with his suspension. So I guess what I'm saying is he can play week 8 I believe.

Let's agree to send San Diego 2 #1's, AH, McNabb, and Orakpo for the rights to franchise VJ.

j/k

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

its been repeatedly reported that the NFLPA will push to make sure that the players who have been FA but for the clause in the last year of the CBA (like VJ, mankins, mcneil, rogers, etc) can not be franchise tagged by the team next year if they were tendered this season as a RFA.

Does VJ have to just report (he can show up in street clothes and refuse to do any work) or does he have to practice, play in games?

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

^ Not sure what participation VJ has to make but I'd think show up healthy and dressed out. But like I said if I was him my practice habbits would be bad, I'd drop balls in practice, if pushed on to the field I'd run crappy routes and drop balls so the team would not want to use me. They pretty much gave every player who had issues a new contract except him. I'd be pissed if I was him.

Re: VJ saga over. He is reporting for duty next week.

Thats what im confused about. I cant see VJ going out there and playing knowing that if he suffers a serious or career ending injury he wont see another nfl penny.

But if he just shows up in street clothes and refuses to do any work, what can the chargers do? deactivate him? would that then make it so he doesnt accrue enough games on team to earn FA status next year?

so confused.

He still has to serve his 3 game team-imposed suspension. That took effect once he signed his tender. Had he signed his tender before Sept. 4 he could have served the team-imposed suspension concurrently with his league suspension. But he didn't. So now he has to sit 3 games
