NFL Suspends Unhappy Chargers WR Jackson Three Games

If a team is interested in trading for Chargers #1 wide out Vincent Jackson, they are going to have to take into consideration the fact he’ll miss the first three games of 2010 with a suspension.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the NFL has suspended Jackson for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Jackson pleaded guilty in February to a 2009 DUI charge. It was his second DUI guilty plea, and it happened while he was on probation for a 2006 conviction. Jackson has the option to appeal the league’s ruling, which could result in a reduced suspension.

The Seahawks and Redskins are reportedly interested in Jackson, who has threatened to hold out well into the regular season if he remains a member of the Chargers. Regardless of whether or not he holds out, his suspension will begin in Week One.

Last season, Jackson had 68 catches for 1,167 yards and nine touchdowns, making the Pro Bowl. It was his second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign.
