Brad Childress has no comment on Vincent Jackson

Vikings fans that don't have faith in Bernard Berrian inevitably were refreshing their favorite Vikings news source at 4:01 ET Friday.

That's the moment the "moratorium" on a potential Vincent Jackson trade ended, allowing the Chargers to make a deal.  Even with a soft deadline of next Wednesday before Jackson's trade value diminishes, a Friday deal is likely wishful thinking.

Any team that wants to get Jackson has to give up big money and agree on trade terms for what could possibly be a one-year rental player with two DUIs to his name.  It won't be easy, and all camps are staying mum on the issue for now.

"He's really not a guy I'm able to speak about for the fact that he's their property," Vikings coach Brad Childress said, via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "I wouldn't get into any speculation on anybody on anybody else's roster."

It's believed the Vikings showed interest previously, but got scared away from Jackson's contractual asking price.  Any team that wants to talk contract with Jackson has to get permission from the Chargers first.
