Two Offseason Questions

1. Does anyone know the likelyhood that the pick the Chargers received from the Jets in the Cromartie trade is a second rounder instead of a third rounder? I know it could become a second rounder based on playing time and Cromartie has played in all 15 games so far this season, so it seems that if the condition was that he had to play in 80% of the defensive snaps or something, he would reach that mark. I haven't heard much talk about it though, and most mock drafts still have the Jets keeping their second rounder, so I'm not sure if people think it will end up being a 3rd round pick going to the Chargers or not.

 

2. Is there any reason to let Vincent Jackson walk for nothing through free agency? Why wouldn't AJ Smith use the franchise tag on him and then trade him? It seems that there's practically no risk in doing so, as I can't imagine there wouldn't be a team willing to give up something for him. Even if he can't match the two 2nd rounders Brandon Marshall fetched last offseason, I find it hard to imagine AJ couldn't get at least a 2nd rounder for him. That would be much better than having to wait until next offseason to get a possible 3rd round compensatory pick. I just don't see any sense in letting Jackson just walk because of a grudge, it's just bad business.
