There is still much to be learned about the relationship between the San Diego Chargers and their star receiver Vincent Jackson. In fact, until this whole ordeal is over, we won't know exactly what either side has planned.
Regardless, it's common knowledge that Vincent Jackson is a young, talented wide receiver, and has built a reputation as one of the better deep-threats in the game.
At 27, V-Jax has pieced together two straight 1,000+ yard seasons, while scoring seven and nine touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. Jackson has also displayed exceptional play-making during that time, averaging over 17 yards per catch, while never dropping below 15 yards per catch in his career.
Jackson is currently facing a three-game suspension to start the 2010 season, and is also an unsigned restricted free agent. The latest news/rumors have the Seattle Seahawks as the top contenders for his services. Although there is speculation that the Chargers might merely be using Seattle to gauge Jackson's contract demands.
However, it is known that Jackson desires big money, a contract somewhere along the lines of what Brandon Marshall got when he signed with the Miami Dolphins.
But who is to say if he'll be signing the deal in San Diego or Seattle?
Since the Chargers and Seahawks are currently the only two big players in this trading/signing game, I thought I'd take a look outside the box and see if there were some other teams that might want Jackson bad enough to make him one of the highest paid receivers in the league.
Remember, we thought Brandon Marshall could go to the Cardinals, Ravens, Jets, Bears, and Redskins yet he ultimately went to Miami. Anything can happen in these situations.
Read on for the top five potential suitors for V-Jax who are not the Seahawks or Chargers.
