The departure of Steven Jackson left a huge void at the running back position.
The veteran moved on to the Atlanta Falcons and the St. Louis Rams are trying to replace him.
According to Joe Lyons of St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams running back competition is heating up in offseason training activities, he describes the situation as ‘wide open.’
Brian Quick and Isaiah Pead selected by the Rams in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft are prime candidates to win the starting job.
Both players didn’t make much of an impact with Jackson getting the bulk of the carries; however, 2013 is the time for them to show what they have.
Pead feels it’s a new season and a new opportunity:
“New year, new season. That’s the way I look at it,’’ Pead said Friday after the Rams wrapped up the first week of offseason practices. “The second year, it’s completely different because you have a better idea of what to expect and you have a better idea of what’s expected of you.
Quick is working through the complexities of the offense:
“This offense is a lot more complicated than anything I’ve run before,’’ Quick said. “You’re constantly working on the little things, trying to make sure that everything is perfect. By the second half of last season, though, I felt a lot more comfortable and now, going into the second year, I really feel like I’m ready to show people what I can do.’’
