Steven Jackson's record-setting career with the St. Louis Rams could be coming to an end.

Jackson, the Rams' career rushing leader, plans to void the final year of his contract to become a free agent March 12, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday.

Steven Jackson should have been a Buccaneer. With that said - old and busted. He won't make the $7 mill he just tossed aside on the open market.

I'd love to have him in Tampa...

...as a backup. At a backup price. Basically an upgrade to LGB.

Yahoo's Jason Cole says that "based on what was happening" at the Combine, free agent Steven Jackson's "likely landing spot" is Atlanta.
It's the same vibe Rams beat writer Jim Thomas is getting. The Falcons see Jacquizz Rodgers as a mere change-of-pace option, evidenced by the 222 carries they gave washed-up Michael Turner last season. Although Jackson has plenty of wear on his tires, he's averaged 4.23 yards per carry over the last two seasons behind a horrendous Rams offensive line. S-Jax has also averaged 8.17 yards per reception over that span, staving off a decline by staying in tremendous physical condition. He'd be an ideal addition for the Falcons' up-tempo offense.

I hope this is smoke...   

Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

It does seem like a good team for him to go to and a team that is in need of him. Perfect fit. Not good for us

That would totally suck. Lets hope he signs with the Bengals instead.

While it would "make sense" for him to go with the xyz, do they have the cap space to accommodate?

He's taking a huge pay cut because he's chasing a ring. We shouldn't be interested in him and he certainly won't be interested in us.

I've heard it mentioned several times that he'd be a good fit with the Packers, which I completely agree with. He'd thrive with a team like them that spreads the defence...not to mention that he's got good hands plus can block pretty well so he'd stay on the field for 3rd downs.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Our run defense is pretty stout.
