Without getting two technical, here’s the deal: The NFL and the players association are arguing whether Jackson, who is serving a three-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy (that suspension isn’t under dispute), would have to serve an additional three games if he were to be traded. Why? Because the Chargers have also placed him on the roster exemption list because Jackson was going to hold out even when his original three game suspension was up. The NFL is arguing that the two bans should be served consecutively, while the NFLPA contends the two penalties should be served concurrently and that Jackson shouldn’t have to serve a roster penalty from the Chargers if he is traded to another team.
The arbiter has five business days to render a decision but reportedly could do so as soon as Friday. And the Minnesota Vikings, who didn’t look good offensively in their season-opening loss to the New Orleans Saints, are set to offer San Diego a high draft pick for Jackson, who has back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons. The Vikings are in need of a top receiver with the loss of Sidney Rice for at least half the season and the unpredictability of Percy Harvin’s migraine issues. But the Vikings aren’t inclined to make a deal for Jackson if he has to sit out six games instead of three. The St. Louis Rams also might get into the bidding for Jackson.
