Check out Vincent Jackson’s interview with the NFL Network. Jackson hasn’t talked publicly in months. While he didn’t have anything earth shattering to say, he remained respectful and reiterated that he wanted to stay in San Diego and was prepared to sit out the season.
I look at his comments as a job interview for other general managers around the league. Even though Jackson is a Pro Bowl player he is a pretty low-profile guy. This interview gave him a chance to speak to other teams and show he has a pretty relaxed demeanor. Perhaps it will help spark trade talks.
Meanwhile, ESPN.com looks at how Jackson’s holdout affects fantasy league drafts. It’s risky, but Jackson could be a steal in the late rounds if he ends up getting traded.
