Vincent Jackson wants a long-term contract extension with the Chargers or a trade.

He didn't help his case for either Thursday, receiving a three-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy after pleading guilty in February to driving under the influence.

The 27-year-old receiver has proved to be a dynamic threat in San Diego with 1,167 receiving yards and nine touchdowns last season.

His big-play ability has even caused interest from the Redskins, according to reports.

But the last thing Washington needs is another bad attitude with legal issues. Just imagine the wrath of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell if Jackson slips up again.

The Redskins' 350-pound, $100 million disgruntled defensive tackle should be a loud warning sign when making future personnel moves.

The new regime of coach Mike Shanahan and general manager Bruce Allen has done well so far in bringing in players with good character. Let's keep it that way.
