Steven Jackson has been the St. Louis Rams’ running back for nine seasons, but there’s a very good chance that this streak might be over.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jackson will void the final year of his contract (March 12) with the Rams. Jackson will be turning 30-years-old this coming summer and as a running back, once you cross the “30 age limit,” NFL franchises including the Rams have a tough time re-signing a back for an extensive amount of money.

Steven Jackson is set to make $7 million dollars in 2013 and even though the Rams would want nothing else but to keep the former 24th overall pick in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, it seems the two sides are very far apart.

For years, we always wondered how good “S-Jax” would be playing for a good team with a great offensive line. Jackson was breaking 1,000 yards per season consecutively for a team that wasn’t that good on the offensive side of the ball. Granted, the Rams were able to draft QB Sam Bradford, but the team more or less has still remained inconsistent.

Steven Jackson would now have a chance to test free agency and choose where he would be a good fit. Teams that come to mind are the New York Jets and the New York Giants. The Jets are in desperate need of a solid and stable running back while the Giants need a starter to replace free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw. Let’s see, how about the Pittsburgh Steelers with all the injuries they’ve had recently?

With Steven Jackson’s talent, it won’t be difficult to land a job, as he instantly becomes the hottest free agent running back this offseason. “S-Jax” only has a few more years in his career so every move he makes will be choosing a roster that will not only be a contender come the 2013-14 NFL season, but a team that’ll take him to the Super Bowl.

  1. One more reason I know that writers behind SI simply don’t know what the hell they’re talking about when they state that Rams’ owner , Stanley Kroenke is one of the most powerful men in sports ! Kroenke is a dilettante’ and an ##shole !

    Anyone who witnessed the Rams last season knows that the team was woefully inept on offense as well as on defense . They need Jackson , but the Rams’ front office is just simply too dumb to realize that fact !

    Tophatal …………..

      Steven Jackson has a few more “good” years in him. If the Rams don’t want to sign him, we’re pretty sure many teams in the league would.

  2. I wanna see a) where this guy ends up and b) what kind of contract he signs.

      Likewise. We would be surprised to see Steven Jackson land a long term deal worth millions, but we could certainly see a contract somewhere within the 2-3 year range for sure.
