Wide Receiver

WR | Miles Austin | Dallas Cowboys | Transaction
The Dallas Cowboys and WR Miles Austin have agreed to a six-year contract extension worth $54 million that will kick in beginning in 2011, according to ESPNDallas.com's Calvin Watkins. The deal will include $18 million in guaranteed salary. Austin signed a $3.168 million contract in June, bringing the total value of his contract to $57 million.

WR | Vincent Jackson | San Diego Chargers | Free Agents
An arbitration hearing will be held Sept. 16 to determine whether San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Jackson will still be subject to the three-game roster exemption list after he completes his three-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, according to Jason Cole, of Yahoo! Sports. The ruling will have a significant impact on if and when Jackson gets traded. Jackson, who is hoping for a long-term deal after refusing to sign a one-year tender as a restricted free agent, has been suspended for the first three games of the season for violating the substance abuse policy. If and when he returns to the Chargers, he then would miss three games because the team placed him on the roster exempt list. However, the NFLPA has argued that the roster exempt status only applies if Jackson remains with the Chargers. The union believes that any team acquiring Jackson in trade would not have to have him sit an additional three weeks.
