JACQUIZZ RODGERS RUMORS

Will Jacquizz Rodgers Be the Next to Go in Atlanta?

The Atlanta Falcons made the move Thursday that many expected they would make when they let running back Steven Jackson go. The former Oregon State product was not the yardage machine that he was in St. Louis and cutting him freed up $3.75 million in cap space, but he may not be the only back that the Falcons say goodbye to.Don't be surprised if Jacquizz Rodgers ends up playing...

Atlanta Falcons look to shake up backfield

When Steven Jackson signed with the Atlanta Falcons two seasons ago, he spoke about the team being “one good running back away from the Super Bowl,” as the Falcons were coming off a 13-3 campaign. Needless to say, Jackson wasn’t the answer. After rushing for over 100 yards just once in his 27 starts while averaging a quiet 3.6 yards per carry with the Falcons, Jackson appears...

Watch: Jacquizz Rodgers Breaks Multiple Tackles for a 17-Yard Madden-esque TD Run

The New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons have put on a show in their Week 1 matchup, but the highlight of the game came from Falcons’ running back Jacquizz Rodgers. Trailing by three points in the fourth quarter, Matt Ryan handed the ball of Rodgers who weaved his way through the Saints defense en route to a 17-yard touchdown. That looked more like a Madden run than a NFL play...

2014 Fantasy Football: 3 Atlanta Falcons to Avoid

Jacquizz Rodgers (24 years old, 4th season in the NFL, contract expires end of 2014)Jacquizz Rodgers has been the bane of my FF-existence for a couple of years now. I don't know how in the world he got to be a 'hopeful' for the Falcons, or for Fantasy Football GMs, from day-one. No matter how poorly Jacquizz plays...the Falcons stick right with him, wasting opportunities that could...

Grading the Draft: Atlanta Falcons take Jake Matthews

The Atlanta Falcons went into the NFL Draft hoping to find a way to acquire the first overall pick from the Texans to select Jadeveon Clowney. That didn’t happen, but the Falcons were more than happy to take offensive tackle Jake Matthews from Texas A&M off the board. Matt Ryan needed more protection last season in a big way, and Matthews will be able to step in immediately...

A case for making Jacquizz Rodgers a feature back

I want to lay out my case for Jacquizz Rogers as the Falcons feature back in 2014. But it would be best to define some terms before we get into that. I feel like we get phrases such as “feature back”, “power back”, “change of pace guy”, and “homerun threat” muddled together far too often.
