Just weeks ago, it appeared there was zero chance WR Vincent Jackson would be back in San Diego following the 2010 season. After all, the Chargers had no interest in meeting his demands for a long-term contract, and Jackson sat out half the year to voice his displeasure with the organization. But following his three-TD explosion in Week 15, the situation could be about to change. From what we hear, the soon-to-be free agent would have no problem returning to the Bolts next season — he just won't do it for less than the roughly $50 million deal he was seeking this past offseason. Chargers GM A.J. Smith also has expressed interest in bringing the Pro Bowl wideout back, but he's not about to cave in to Jackson's demands. A possible scenario is placing the franchise tag on the 27-year-old, which would pay him more than $10 million in 2011. While that wouldn't make Jackson's camp happy, it would give San Diego another year before it had to decide on his future.
