The Rams appear to be one of four teams interested in San Diego wide receiver Vincent Jackson who is sitting out a suspension from the NFL for a DUI in February. If the Chargers were to trade Jackson to the Rams, he would be eligible to play after the Rams’ fourth game. There is certainly some baggage there, but another target for Sam Bradford.
Washington, Seattle and Minnesota have also been linked to having some interest in the wide receiver. Vincent’s case is a little confusing. Basically, Jackson is serving a three game NFL suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He pleaded guilty in February to his second DUI since 2006. He was also suspended an additional three games by the team.
However, after an agreement was reached following a grievance filed by the NFL Players Assocation, if Jackson signs a contract with the Chargers and is traded by 3 p.m. CT next Wednesday, he will be placed on what’s call the commissioner exempt list for three games, retroactive to Game 2. All this means Jackson would be able to play in his new team’s fifth game.
Which, at least at this time according to multiple sources could include the Rams.
