NFL Trade Rumors: The Latest on Vincent Jackson, Brandon Jacobs, and More
Pro Bowl wide receiver Vincent Jackson is trying to get traded as soon as possible. But he's not the only veteran player hoping to switch area and zip codes.
At least four other big name NFL players might be on the move shortly. Some of them are predictable, others, like Brandon Jacobs, are just rumors as of now.
Let's see what the rumor mill is saying.
While getting beaten pretty badly by the Indianapolis Colts last night, running back Brandon Jacobs lost his cool.
The word is during the game, he was yelled at by head coach Tom Coughlin for running east and west instead of going up the field.
Jacobs was so mad he tossed his helmet into the stands.
That was the end of his night. The word is that Jacobs is going to go to the front office and ask to be traded.
No word on who might want an east-and-west runner.
After losing to the Miami Dolphins 14-10 and looking pretty bad with their passing offense, the Minnesota Vikings might be so desperate that they would be willing to trade for disgruntled and suspended San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson, even if it's only for the 12 remaining games of the season.
It's either that or wait seven or so more weeks for Sidney Rice to heal. Jackson desperately hopes that the Vikings pull the trigger and get him out of purgatory.
Breaking news! Albert Haynesworth might get traded. Okay, that isn't an earth-shattering rumor, but the word is out that the Tennessee Titans are still in the running to get their man back.
Talks have not died down, they have just gone covert, according to NFL sources. The reason there is no hurry on the Redskins' part? No one else wants him except for the Titans.
Brandon Jackson is filling Ryan Grant's spot in the Packers' backfield, but the word is that they want a starting back with a little more upside.
And the name that Green Bay keeps coming up with is Marshawn Lynch. But unfortunately, they can't seem to put the right package together to snatch him away from the Bills.
Don't be surprised if the Pack revisits this option.
A. J. Hawk
The word is that Hawk was almost traded to the bills for Marshawn Lynch because of the Ryan Grant injury. But, ESPN reports that the Packers are hesitant to trade their 2006 high draft pick because they doubt they would get equal value.
The Bills weren't interested in Hawk for Lynch straight up. And the Packers aren't interested in sweetening the pot just yet.
Unlike fellow disgruntled San Diego teammate Vincent Jackson, Marcus McNeill doesn't seem to be leaving San Diego any time soon.
McNeill, San Diego's two-time Pro Bowl left tackle, hasn't been given permission by the Chargers to seek a trade, even though fellow holdout Jackson has.
But, McNeill also says that he doesn't want to be traded.
