March 12th is fast approaching for St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, who has a decision to make on whether he'll void the final year of his contract and enter free agency, or more unlikely, stay with the team for at least one more year. All reports have Jackson definitely voiding the contract and hitting the free agent market, but head coach Jeff Fisher isn't hearing any of that right now, taking a 'we'll cross that bridge when we come to it' attitude. “I think we’re right in the middle of February right now,” Fisher said, via The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “So we’ve got plenty of time. The combine’s coming up next week, so we have plenty of time.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
