Vikings Officials Reportedly Determining Interest In WR Vincent Jackson

The Vikings have reportedly been one of a handful of teams interested in unsigned restricted free agent Chargers WR Vincent Jackson.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Vikings officials were expected to gather on Sunday night or Monday morning to determine their interest in trading for the Chargers receiver.

A team source said Vikings owner Zygi Wilf will be the final authority on a possible trade because Jackson wants a contract that will average $9.5 million per year and contain $30 million in guaranteed money. If the Vikings are willing to pay that amount, the Chargers are expected to ask for two draft picks, one of them at least a second-rounder for the Pro Bowl wideout, who is a restricted free agent.

Jackson recently had a ruling that his suspension would be for four games and not six so that's good news.

The going rate for a top receiver is the two second round picks the Dolphins gave the Broncos for Brandon Marshall. Jackson has a little more legal trouble involved in his case so his value may not be that high but you can bet the Chargers will be asking for something in that range.
