Report Says Chargers Won’t Franchise Tag WR Vincent Jackson

Word is the Chargers are not likely to give wide receiver Vincent Jackson the franchise tag if they are unable to sign him, according to the U-T San Diego.

The 28-year-old had the franchise tag placed on him by the Chargers last offseason, resulting in a one-year contract worth around $11 million. If the team decides to place the franchise tag on Jackson for the 2012 season, it would cost around $13 million.

Sources told the newspaper that this offseason, however, the team probably would not devote that much money to a single receiver for a one-year deal. The newspaper reported that the Chargers will likely begin negotiating with Jackson in February, if they do not place the franchise tag on him, Jackson will become a free agent.
