Jackson’s agent says he thinks the Chargers don’t want to trade the WR

The agent for unhappy wide out Vincent Jackson says that he thinks the Chargers have no interest in trading his client, and instead would like to work out a deal to keep him in San Diego:

Talk of the Chargers trading disgruntled receiver Vincent Jackson might be much ado about nothing. At least that’s what his agent thinks. Neil Schwartz doesn’t believe the Chargers are inclined to trade his client, who refuses to play under the one-year contract tender offered him as a restricted free agent and who’s withholding services in search of a long-term deal. Schwartz’s belief stems from a conversation with Chargers assistant general manager and lead negotiator Ed McGuire on Tuesday, when the team wouldn’t allow the agent to talk trade with teams other than the Seattle Seahawks.

“After media reports surfaced last week about us talking with Seattle, we had half-a-dozen teams contact us about acquiring Vincent,” Schwartz said Wednesday. “We instructed them to talk to the Chargers because we didn’t have permission to speak to any team other than Seattle. “That’s why we asked the Chargers if we could talk to other teams. Before that, we had never asked the Chargers for a trade.” According to Schwartz, the Chargers said there are certain teams they won’t trade Jackson to. Schwartz asked for a list, and the Chargers declined.

    Perhaps this little test run with the Seahawks can demonstrate to VJ that his value is not as high as he thinks it is. If Paul Allen isn’t going to cough up the $, then it is not likely that anybody else will this year.
