JC Jackson refused to play for Chargers in Week 4: report


The New England Patriots brought back cornerback JC Jackson on Wednesday in a trade with the Los Angeles Chargers and before he joined the team, a new report shed light on just how bad the relationship with his old team was fractured.

The Chargers picked up a win against the Las Vegas Raiders last week and Jackson was active but did not play. The NFL Network reported that the defensive back “repeatedly refused” to enter the game even when one of his teammates was limping a bit.

Jackson reportedly told coaches he wasn’t “hot enough” to play the game. This seemed to be the final straw.

He hadn’t played since the second week of the season. After being healthy in Week 3, Jackson said at the time he didn’t understand why he wasn’t playing.

“I kind of knew what was going on. I still don’t understand why,” Jackson said after the Minnesota Vikings game. “I can’t give my opinion on that. It was a coach’s decision. It’s not my team. I can tell you I’m confused and I don’t know what’s going on. But this isn’t the real answer to why I didn’t play or why I didn’t start. It’s beyond me.”

Jackson signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract before the start of the 2022 season. He played 85 of the team’s 132 defensive snaps before being made inactive and did not play again last week .

He only played in seven games for the Chargers between 2022 and this season. He was a Pro Bowler with the Patriots and was on the team when they won the Super Bowl in 2018.
