St. Louis Post Dispatch: Rams running back Steven Jackson will void the final year of his contract March 12, league sources told the Post-Dispatch on Monday. That means Jackson, the Rams’ career rushing leader, will test the free-agent market.
Not surprising at all… I personally think that Jackson will end up back with the Rams in a backup role at a more cap friendly deal. Daryl Richardson filled in heavily for Jackson at times last year but Jeff Fisher has been bullish on Isaiah Pead’s ability to carry the load on offense. Rams fans seem to think cutting ties with Richardson and rolling with Pead is the right move.
