The St Louis Rams previously restructured Steven Jackson‘s contract back in September, which included a clause that would void Jackson’s current deal if he was on their roster as of the fifth day following the upcoming Super Bowl. Howard Balzer reports that the Rams have once again made some adjustments to Jackson’s contract. According to Balzer, St Louis reworked Jackson’s deal so that his 2013 prorated signing bonus will now be reflected upon their current cap instead of next year’s. This also removed the roster requirement that would have voided Jackson’s deal in the coming months. Balzer adds that this move will not save the Rams any money in terms of their cap next season. Jackson is still set to make $7 million in base salary next season, but has said that we would like to get a long-term agreement in place that would allow him to finish his career with the Rams. St Louis appears to be interested in the idea as well, so there’s a pretty decent chance that they’ll come to an agreement before the start of free agency. For the time being, we have Jackson listed as the No. 14 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.   The post Rams Restructure Steven Jackson’s Contract appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
