Falcons Could Be Landing Spot For Steven Jackson

For the first time in his career St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson will be a free agent.

The Post Dispatch reported today Jackson will void the final year of his contract on March 12th.

The Rams are still in negations with Jackson’s agent to keep him in St Louis, but the buzz is that the 30-year-old veteran wants to play for a Super Bowl contender and there’s a good chance he may land in Atlanta.

One of the most likely suitors is Atlanta, which according to reports plans to release veteran back Michael Turner. When you’re as close to the Super Bowl as the Falcons, it makes sense adding a veteran running back — even if he has only a couple of more years left — to get you over the top.

I like the Jackson move to Atlanta. His versatile running ability would be a good compliment to the Atlanta offense, and provide a little more depth than Turner’s downhill power running style.
