08:01 AM ET 07.20 | Vincent Jackson, along with Logan Mankins, finds himself in a bit of limbo, but he'll certainly have suitors in the event he becomes a free agent. [If] Jackson becomes a free agent, it shouldn't be a surprise if the Vikings at least circle back with Jackson's camp about a future pairing, especially if Sidney Rice goes elsewhere. The momentum had built for weeks early last season as the NFL trade deadline grew close and Jackson, according to several reports, seemed poised to become a Viking. The team inquired about the services of Jackson, who demanded a trade after the Chargers tagged him with a restricted tender instead of a long-term contract.

So the ViQueens are the apple of every wide receiver's eye?


Must be the QB's there.

Seriously. There's got to be a better team in a position to make a trade for him. Some team that has a good QB but needs a top receiver. Now who could that be?

Nope. The Patriots don't want a trouble-maker. Of course, they might go for Sidney Rice, making an even bigger problem for the team from the shutdown state.

We know for sure it won't be Tavaris Jackson.

Y'all did Take Randy Moss... but then again I guess having to give up a 1st round draft pick instead of just a 4th rounder makes a difference, nevermind

Dang. TJack to VJack would have had such a poetic sound to it.

Like a spicy, aromatic burrito, man. The Pats got him for a bargain, used him well, and then flushed when he came out the other end not smelling so good anymore.

Vikings are DREAMING OF A...1) good Q.B. 2) A Game win. 3) A New stadium. ETC.....

It never hurts to dream big. Antonio Cromartie seems to think he can strike it rich in free agency...

TJack? VJack? Nope, what the Vikings need is Magic Jack! Then they could call Hattiesburg.
