The NFL has suspended Chargers WR Vincent Jackson for three games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy, according to ESPN and NFL Network.

Jackson, 27, pleaded guilty in February to a 2009 DUI charge. It was his second DUI guilty plea, and it happened while he was on probation for a 2006 conviction.

The NFL Players Association has already filed an appeal of the league's ruling, according to NFL.com, and that could result in a reduced suspension.

Disgruntled with his situation in San Diego, the sixth-year receiver is currently the topic of trade rumors. Both the Seahawks and Redskins are reportedly interested in the services of Jackson, who has threatened to hold out well into the regular season if he remains a member of the Chargers. Regardless of whether or not he holds out, his suspension will begin in Week One.

Last season, Jackson had 68 catches for 1,167 yards and nine touchdowns, making the Pro Bowl. It was his second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign.
