Smith expects Jackson to be 'major contributor'

Vincent Jackson informed the San Diego Chargers that he'll sign his tender Friday (which means a return date of October 29, due to his roster exempt suspension), but even though the former Pro Bowler is coming back, there's no guarantee that the Chargers will bring him right back into the fold, right?

Wrong -- A.J. Smith told Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune on Thursday afternoon that he expects Jackson to be a "major contributor."

"I believe he will do well," Smith said. "He always has been a worker, stays in shape, knows our offense. After a little game-speed adjustment, I would expect him to be a major contributor."

This is surprising if only because Smith's been so stubborn with Jackson's situation -- although his stance was the same with Marcus McNeill as well.

It's not surprising because the Chargers are floundering early (again) at 2-4, Malcom Floyd, Legedu Naanee and Antonio Gates are all somewhat injured, and Buster Davis has two king-size Butterfingers attached to his wrists.

In short, Jackson immediately makes this team immensely more dangerous on the offensive end, and it behooves Smith, for job security's sake, to make sure that things are "all business" with his disgruntled wideout. Plus, a big second half to the season from Jackson means more wins for the Bolts and more money for the receiver, so it's a win-win as long as everyone can play nice off the field.

Great news. Suddenly we need VJ in the very worst way. But you're wrong about Davis - he's a crucial asset to the offence.
