Report: Vincent Jackson suspension reduced to 4

Vincent Jackson's hotly debated suspension (he's locked into three games for a DUI, the roster exempt suspension could cost him an additional three games) is gathering even more discussion according to a report today that the NFL and the NFLPA are negotiating a deal that could allow Jackson to only miss either four or five games if he's traded by the San Diego Chargers.

Adam Schefter reports on Twitter that the two sides are "engaged in settlement talks" to reduce the suspension if the wide receiver is traded. The reduction is key, of course, because Jackson becomes substantially less trade-able if he misses five games (especially to a team like the Minnesota Vikings, who could have Sidney Rice back as early as Week 6) versus four.

Edit/Update: Multiple reports from Jason Cole at Yahoo! Sports and Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune indicate that the NFL and the NFLPA reached a settlement on this issue and Jackson will be able to play, if he's traded to another team, in that new team's fifth game. Meaning: the suspension has been reduced to four games, provided he's dealt.

It would appear then, that the NFLPA didn't believe it would emerge victorious from the hearing with a full nullification of the additional three-gamer. Otherwise, they wouldn't likely be seeking any sort of settlement.

Once a settlement is reached and the full extent of Jackson's suspension is known, you can expect wide receiver needy teams to reach out to the Chargers and try to figure out what it is they want in return for the disgruntled wideout.

Prior to Jackson's additional suspension kicking in, a unnamed team had reached a contract extension with Jackson's camp, but the offer in return to San Diego wasn't enough to entice them to trade him. Presumably, the value in Jackson, with an additional game or two that he'll miss, will go down.

But expecting Bolts' GM A.J. Smith to let V-Jax and his camp get out of this happy and without the Chargers being satisfied with their compensation is silly given the way he's behaved thus far in negotiations .
