NFL Lockout: Vincent Jackson Drops Demands, Will Sign Settlement, According To Report

Vincent Jackson has finally given it up.

Jackson, one of the 10 named plaintiffs in the Brady vs. NFL antitrust lawsuit, was reportedly making demands -- or someone on his behalf was making demands -- such as a cash payout or lifting of the franchise tag in return for his signature in the settlement with the owners.

Jackson tweeted earlier this week that he just wanted to play football and wasn't making demands but multiple reports suggested otherwise.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jackson has dropped his demands. He's not seeking money or free agency in exchange for his role as a named plaintiff in the case.

Jackson's the last question mark of all 10 named plaintiffs. It's believed all 10 will sign the settlement without a problem whenever the players vote to approve it. Previously, it was reported Colts QB Peyton Manning and Saints QB Drew Brees were requesting special treatment, but agent Tom Condon denied that. The agent for Patriots G Logan Mankins also denied he was seeking special treatment.

So whenever the players review the owners' proposal and ultimately vote, they'll have all 10 signatures.
