Can anybody more or less explain what is going on with his holdout against the Chargers. How does it compare with Revis with the Jets. Thanks.

The NFL and the NFL Players' Association had agreed to a 4 p.m. ET deadline for San Diego to trade Jackson, which would have allowed him to be active by the fifth week of the regular season; Jackson is under a three-game suspension for past DUI offenses. When he did not sign his restricted free agent tender, the Chargers placed Jackson on an exempt list, which prohibited him from playing for three more weeks.

By letting Wednesday's deadline pass, the Chargers will keep Jackson on the exempt list for the first six weeks of the season. San Diego still can trade him by the Oct. 19 trade deadline.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Thanks. What I don't understand is that he is going to be a free agent next year. I was under the impression that a player losses a year toward free agency if he does not sign and sit out the year.

He would have been a free agent this past off season if the collective bargaining agreement had not expired. When it expired it triggered several clauses built in to try and motivate both sides to not allow this to happen. Among many others (no cap), one year was added to players free agent eligibility requirement. Under normal circumstances he would have to sign his tender and report before the 11th game of the season. That would count as a year of service time. If he sits out the whole year then he is assuming that the new agreement will have the same service time requirements as before. Of course if there's no agreement then none of this will really matter next year.
