Vincent Jackson Suspended 3 Games
Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to adjust your wide receiver rankings. The equally talented and troubled WR Vincent Jackson was handed a three-game suspension by Roger Goodell for violating the league’s personal conduct policy following his second DUI arrest.
He is also threatening to sit out the season in a contract dispute. The longer he stays away from the Chargers, the harder it’s going to be to get on track. There has been some speculation that some NFL teams (Seattle, Washington, and Chicago) are interested in trading for V-Jax, but the suspension doesn’t help matters. When you consider one more slip up could lead to a much lengthier suspension, it’s hard to imagine teams would be willing to give the Chargers what they are asking for.
Thankfully we don’t draft in early July, but if you have to turn your keeper list anytime soon, I would strongly consider making alternative plans.
