Expect the Franchise Tag for Vincent Jackson

Adam Shefter is reporting: "Multiple people around the league now believe the Chargers have no choice but to slap their franchise tag on Jackson, lest they lose him in free agency." The franchise tag would run the Chargers about $10.6M and of course would create more controversy and animosity between the team and the wide receiver. However, not using it on him would only serve to help Jackson and would be of no benefit to the team. Using it would mean the Chargers retain his rights and can get value from him. We have a pretty good idea already how A.J. Smith deals with that sort of decision tree.
