STEVEN JACKSON RUMORS

Falcons release Steven Jackson

The hits keep coming for NFL running backs. A day after the Detroit Lions sent Reggie Bush packing, veteran running back Steven Jackson was released by the Atlanta Falcons.

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...

A healthy Steven Jackson could make or break the 2014 season

He may be on the back end of his career, but don’t put him past his prime. He may have been the worst Falcon at the rushing attack, but give that title to any back with a notorious offensive line. He may have ended an eight straight 1000 yard season streak with the Rams, but again running behind a better offensive line would have helped. Despite getting older and a hamstring injury...
