"I just don't understand why (a trade was not completed). They obviously think I'm a valuable player by asking for such high trade compensation, but why am i only offered tender salary? My agents and teams interested did everything to make it happen, but this organization stopped it. I just want to play football. It feels unethical and I am disappointed."
It's been reported that the Vikings were one of the teams that were actively trying to trade for him. Jackson's agents have said that they had a one-year contract with an option worked out with another team if a trade was completed.
Jackson has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender so he is technically not under contract. He had to sign before 4:00 p.m. Wednesday in order to play for a team in Week 5. Now he will have to serve a three-game suspension for being on the roster exempt list if he does ever sign with the Chargers.
