Mike Shanahan Shoots Down Vincent Jackson To Redskins Speculation

Today is a key day in the Vincent Jackson trade sweepstakes, because after today, the disgruntled San Diego Chargers wide receiver's suspension will go from four to six games. In light of this, a Twitter report by San Diego radio host Lee Hamilton indicated the Redskins were discussing making a move for him.

However, Mike Shanahan shot down the rumor pretty emphatically. Here's what he said when asked about it during his post-practice media session today, via 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen.

Shanahan on Vincent Jackson: ''It's a rumor.'' When asked if he wants to put it to rest ... ''I just did I think.''    

It's not like Shanahan was going to confirm the rumors, so stay tuned. However, that's about as noteworthy a putdown as it gets.
