08:07 AM ET 01.26 | If A.J. Smith now is comfortable talking about a long-term deal for Vincent Jackson, the Chargers wideout has yet to hear that from the GM himself. "There hasn???t been any communication as far as contracts go," Jackson said after Wednesday???s Pro Bowl practice. "If that???s their feeling, that???s great. I would like to stay in San Diego. Obviously, that???s my home, that???s where I was drafted. I???ve got some good guys around me -- Philip Rivers (Antonio) Gates, Ryan Mathews. It would be a great place for me to stay, so we???ll see if that works out." Jackson, who earned $11.4 million this past season as the team???s franchise player, said he???d prefer to avoid the tag again. "That???s something that???s out of my control," he said.

I've heard it's far and away better than T-Jack.

It's a computer interconnection protocol, like USB or I-triple E-488.

Wait a minute. If they franchised him for 2011, they can't do it again in 2012, right?

VY, CJ2K, RG3,T-Jack, V-Jax, Sometimes you need a freakiin urban dictionary to figure out who they are talking about.

Oh break my heart, franchise me again so I can stay where I want and make over 11.5 million for the year. I wish I had such problems in my life.

Good question for 50

They can do him again this year because of new CBA.

actually...I am not sure if V-Jax sounds more like an STD or a form of birth control...

Here ya go, and yes they can. But I doubt they will.

"A player can only be named a franchise player two years in a row. The second year must include at least a 10 percent increase over his previous salary or the average of the top five players at his position, whichever is higher."


They MAY offer him a non exclusive franchise tag, which means he can go out and negotiate a new deal and they can match it if they want. They may do that.

AJ "the pr.ick" hates V-Jax so I doubt he'll sign him to a long-term deal. Then again, which one of his players (other than "yes man" Rivers) doesn't AJ dislike?? He seems to alienate all of them...
