The next year we F-Tagged him. If we're talking about that time frame then no. VJ was free and was not going to sign a 1 year contract so we didn't have a choice but to franchise him since we did not or could not work out a long term deal.
He was franchised, and he didn't want to sign the tender, and held out. He wasn't allowed to play for 5 games based on his suspension. Mac held out as well, but he signed before. Jackson didn't.
