San Diego DUI trouble for Vincent Jackson of the ChargersDUILawyer
Just this past Friday Vincent Jackson, wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers, stated that he was ready to sit out for the entire 2010 football season if he could not get a contract he agreed with.
It has come to light that Jackson is looking for a five-year deal worth $50 million with 30 million guaranteed. While the Chargers offered Jackson a one-year tender at $3.268 million. To this point Jackson has refused to sign the tender and is holding out until further notice.
Calm June 15 Jackson’s tender was reduced to $583,000, and on August 20 Jackson was moved to the roster exempt list and if he signs he will be suspended for the first three games of the 2010 season.
To make matters worse, Jackson has already been suspended for the first three games of the season by the NFL office because of a DUI in San Diego. Jackson pleaded guilty to the San Diego DUI case which was his second San Diego DUI since 2006.
Fortunately at the time Jackson had a good San Diego DUI attorney to take care of his DUI case. Now, it is up to him and the Chargers to come to an agreement on this coming 2010 football season.
