Chargers' Jackson could face decision to sit out entire season

This article is long and does a fantastic job of describing it's point, but allow me to try and summarize. The Chargers hold the right to put Vincent Jackson on a "roster exempt" list for 3 weeks, without pay, after he signs his tender....but doing so is entirely up to them. So if he signs on Week 7, they can force him into the lineup for the entire second half of the season. If he waits until Week 10 to sign, they can put him on the "roster exempt" list for 3 weeks and deny him the 6 games he needs for this season to count towards his experience/free agency......which would put him int the exact same situation a year from now. Looks like this decision will come around Week 7 instead of Week 10.
