NFL Lockout: Vincent Jackson Will Not Become Free Agent

Updated: July 25, 2011

Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson will not hold up the Brady V. NFL settlement as the lockout ends.  That was one of the loose threads hanging around the status of the NFL lockout.  If Jackson did not sign the agreement then he could have possibly continued the lockout.

Adamn Schefter tweeted:

Named plaintiff Vincent Jackson now is willing to release his claim without compensation – meaning no money or lifting of the franchise tag.

Many media outlets reported earlier this week that fellow franchised player, Logan Mankins, would not hold up the lockout either.  It was insinuated that Jackson would.  Now that Brady V. NFL is settled, will we see Jackson V. NFL?

As the news comes in fast and furious, we will be reporting on it.
