The spokesman told The Associated Press on Friday that the Seahawks were granted permission by the Chargers to talk to the wide receiver a couple of weeks ago.
Jackson has not reported to training camp because he is unhappy with being a restricted free agent in San Diego. He wants a multiyear contract.
The Chargers and Seahawks would have to work out a trade to get Jackson that deal.
Jackson is a Pro Bowler coming off his second straight 1,000-yard season. He recently pleaded guilty to his second DUI since joining the NFL. He is suspended for the first three regular-season games.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com currently list the Seahawks at 100/1 to win the 2011 Super Bowl and 45/1 to win the NFC. They’re also +350 on the money line to win the NFC West and have an over/under regular season win total of 7.5 games this year.
