St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson will become a free agent on March 12 after coming to an agreement with the Rams in October of last year to void his current contract. Jackson was in the final year of a six-year, $44 million contract that he signed with the Rams in 2008. Although Jackson was owed $7 million in salary for this year's season, St. Louis was reportedly uninterested in retaining Jackson at that cost. Jackson may not be coming back to St. Louis, but you can make sure that you always have a great seat at Edward Jones Dome with a St. Louis Rams PSL from PSL Source.

As a free agent, Jackson could find a higher salary from an NFL team desperate to shore up their running game, especially considering Jackson's elite runner status. Three-time Pro Bowler Jackson is the Ram's all-time leading rusher, with 10,135 yards and was the lead rusher in the NFC in 2009. Although Rams coach Jeff Fisher still has the option of resigning Jackson to a new contract, he will now have to compete with other teams in a free agency market that currently has very few substantial running backs.
RB Steven Jackson was drafted by St. Louis in 2004 and he has played his entire NFL career for the Rams. In December of last year, Jackson became the 27th running back in NFL history to have surpassed the 10,000 yard mark. Despite having 2,395 carries and 56 touchdowns over the course of his career, Jackson has never played for a championship NFL team. As Jackson approaches his 30th birthday, many commentators are speculating that he will seek out a team with a better chance at winning a coveted Super Bowl title. The Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, or Indianapolis Colts are just some of the possible franchises that Jackson might be compatible with as this elite running back looks to finish up his career with a championship win.
