The agent for disgruntled Chargers WR Vincent Jackson says he's not certain that San Diego wants to trade his client.

According to, Neil Schwartz said that he received calls about Jackson from several teams, which he wouldn't identify, asking about his client's availability in a trade. Schwartz says he told them that he couldn't talk to them because he had permission to talk only with the Seahawks.

According to Schwartz, Chargers vice president Ed McGuire told him that there were teams they wouldn't trade Jackson to, but he wouldn't give Schwartz a list of those teams, causing Schwartz to conclude that San Diego may not really want to deal the AWOL receiver.

According to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune, not only did the Seahawks balk at Jackson's asking price of $50 million over five years with $30 million guaranteed, the Vikings had a similar reaction when they considered making a bid for Jackson. The Vikings subsequently signed veteran WR Javon Walker and then traded for Dolphins WR Greg Camarillo.
