Steven Jackson Continues Crusade to End the Running Back By Committee Approach

Steven Jackson was the quintessential workhorse running back when he was with the St. Louis Rams. With the Falcons he was not so much the workhorse, but was part of a committee approach. His time with Atlanta is now over and there has not been much talk about where he might land next. Rather than wait by the phone for teams to call he has been busy taking on a crusade to save the...

Steven Jackson likely to be released by Falcons

With the new coaching staff in place, the Atlanta Falcons will have a big re-tooling of their roster this off-season. One of the guys that makes the most sense as an “odd man out” is Steven Jackson. Jackson’s tenure with the Falcons has been disappointing as he rushed for 543 yards in 2013 and 707 yards in 2014 and failed to average more than 3.7 yards per carry in either season...
