Agent: Chargers not inclined to trade Jackson

SAN DIEGO – The agent for Vincent Jackson says the San Diego Chargers have given him the impression they aren’t inclined to trade the Pro Bowl wide receiver.

Unhappy that he hasn’t been given a long-term deal, Jackson hasn’t signed the one-year, $3,268,000 contract he was tendered as a restricted free agent.

The Seattle Seahawks said last week that they were given permission by the Chargers to talk to Jackson’s representatives about a trade. Jackson’s agent, Neil Schwartz, says news of those talks prompted a half dozen other NFL teams to contact him. He says he referred them to the Chargers.

Schwartz says he spoke with Chargers negotiator Ed McGuire on Tuesday, and that the team won’t give him permission to talk with teams other than the Seahawks. McGuire declined to comment.
