Between his holdout during the 2010 season and his lawsuit during the lockout in 2011. it's a miracle the San Diego Chargers kept this guy on the roster. In fact, they handed the controversial wide receiver a one-year, $11 million contract.
There's no question that Jackson is a necessity for the Chargers, given their lack of wide receiver depth. But for all his antics and lawsuits, the Colorado-born wideout has just two 1,000-yard receiving seasons during his six years in the NFL.
V-Jax lines up with one of the best tight ends in the NFL today, Antonio Gates; has an elite quarterback, Philip Rivers, throwing him the ball; and the tandem of Ryan Mathews and Mike Tolbert to direct attention away from the passing game. With an offense as talented as San Diego's and their recent history of having a consistent, explosive offense, this guy should have more than just a couple of 1,000-yard years.
Analysts would argue he has a knack for getting in the end zone, but he still has no double-digit touchdown years in his career—despite being the top wideout on his team for multiple seasons.
Jackson believes he is one of the top-tier, elite receivers in the game. It's about time he convinced everyone else the same.
