During a barrage of media interviews Thursday and Friday in New York, running back Steven Jackson sounded very much like someone who has made his mind up to leave the Rams, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
I understand the business side of it, Jackson told Sirius XM NFL Radio. I still have a great relationship with the (Rams) organization, and one day Ill be going back there.
There werent a lot of phone calls inquiring about him Saturday according to those close to Jackson. But Atlanta still is regarded as the frontrunner for his services, and the Falcons arent the only team interested.

Season SummaryThe 2012 season was a rebound campaign for the St. Louis Rams under veteran Head Coach Jeff Fisher and first-year General Manager Les Snead. After finishing the 2011 season at a dismal 2-14, former Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo was fired and Owner Stan Kroenke went out and got the best available free-agent coach available: Jeff Fisher.

Jim Thomas of the St Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams will part ways with WR Brandon Gibson and are not expected to retain Danny Amendola.
They reportedly wanted to keep Gibson as their No. 3 or 4 receiver next year, but a top-heavy group of free agent wideouts could work in his favor. Same with Amendola who is reportedly targeting a similar contract to the one recently...
The Eagles have struck out in free agency recently, but reportedly believe acquiring Danny Amendola could be a hit.
With the Rams and Amendola unable to agree on contract terms, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reports the Eagles will pursue him once free agency begins Tuesday.
At least two things link Amendola to the Eagles. He's a favorite of offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur...
Steven Jackson could be the guy to help Green Bay get back to the Super Bowl.
The Green Bay Packers do not take many risks in NFL Free Agency. In fact, for the most part, general manager Ted Thompson stays away from it altogether – choosing instead to focus on re-signing the players he has drafted that prove worthy of second or even third contracts.
Yet, sometimes you have to...
As we head into the final 30 hours prior to the start of the NFL Free Agency period, several teams will be making several roster moves.

Amendola reportedly won’t be re-signed by St. Louis in free agency. The Texas...
After having no say in the future of star running back Steven Jackson, who has ripped up his contract, you would think the St. Louis Rams would try and keep some semblance of order and weaponry for quarterback Sam Bradford who had little or no targets to throw at last season.
Now today news comes through of not one but two wide receivers wanting to leave Missouri for pastures new...
After not using the franchise tag on him and being miles apart in contract talks, it appears unlikely that Danny Amendola will go to the highest bidder in free agency, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
The lean market also could work in Amendola’s favor. Brian Hartline provided a benchmark of sorts Friday when he re-signed with Miami for a reported $6.1 million a year over...
Will this duo be back together?
Today at 4 p.m. marks the official start to the NFL Free Agent signing period. There are some big names that many experts expect to change teams such as former Ram Steven Jackson, former Steeler Mike Wallace, and possibly (former) Patriot Wes Welker.
I don't truly care where Jackson and Wallace end up because it neither one has any effect on...
