Jackson Signs $11M Tender With Chargers

Jul 30, 2011 10:31 AM

Vincent Jackson signed his $11 million franchise tender with the Chargers on Friday afternoon. Jackson missed last year's training camp and most of the season because of a salary dispute. However, he said there isn't bad blood between him and the team. "When I came in this afternoon, it was like a reunion with your family," Jackson said in his first public comments since January. "Guys welcomed me with open arms." During the lockout, Jackson was one of 10 named plaintiffs in the antitrust lawsuit filed against team owners. He said it was "kind of a shock" to learn of media accounts that depicted him as a lead plaintiff who could hold up the next labor pact. "I'm not sure where that came from," Jackson said. "There was just a group of plaintiffs in the lawsuit, and I was one of many plaintiffs, and we were all in the pursuit of the same thing."
