It appears Vincent Jackson is no longer a thorn in the side of the NFL. Or the NFLPA*.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Chargers wide receiver has finally decided to give up on his claim to money or franchise tag considerations in exchange for being a plaintiff in the Brady antitrust case.

This is positive news for a few reasons this Saturday morning. It clears the way for the Brady plaintiffs to quickly sign off on a labor deal once the rest of the open items are worked out.

It’s also a sign that discussions and progress continue to be made over the weekend. We’ll take any progress we can get at this stage.
