Running back Steven Jackson could be playing his last game in a St. Louis Rams uniform Sunday as the Rams play the Seattle Seahawks for their final regular season game.
The nine-year veteran will have the chance to explore free agency at the end of the season, but has also hinted he might just retire.
From the Associated Press:
Jackson intimated Thursday that he might retire at the end of this season. Though he laughed as he said it, the 29-year-old running back didn't retreat from the idea when asked how serious he was about the possibility.
He has expressed interest in ending his career with the only team he's played for as a professional, but he hasn't publicly committed to returning. Coach Jeff Fisher said the team wants him back, but Jackson's demands could price him out of a Rams uniform.
Jackson has said he wanted to finish his NFL career with the Rams. The Rams have said they would be open to entertaining the idea of re-signing the 29-year-old, but they also have Isaiah Pead and Daryl Richardson on the team.
Jackson is 10 yards from recording his eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season.
