2012 Free Agency: Vincent Jackson Could Be Target For Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins will be looking to add some playmakers in free agency during the 2012 NFL offseason, including at the wide receiver position. One potential free agent wide receiver the Redskins could target is San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post.

Several people in the sport said a leading target for the Redskins could be San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson. The issue with Jackson, as with some of the other top receivers with expiring contracts, is whether he will remain available after Monday's deadline for teams to use their franchise-player tags. The Chargers, according to one source, have not ruled out using their franchise-player designation on Jackson but seem to be leaning against doing so.

While many believe Jackson will not receive the franchise tag from the Chargers, it's still a possibility. Some believe the Chargers will still franchise tag Jackson, but even if they don't he's going to pull in a big haul contract wise in free agency.
