Steven Jackson - new contract

Suddenly, this could be contract year for Jackson
2 hours ago • BY JIM THOMAS

Even before the Rams negotiated and completed long-term contract extensions with defensive end Chris Long and middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, running back Steven Jackson had let it be known that he was interested in a contract extension with St. Louis.

The three-time Pro Bowler has said on many occasions that he wants to retire a Ram, and he obviously believes he has more than two years left as a productive back. (His current contract expires after the 2013 season.)

But with negotiations on an extension going nowhere, the Rams and Jackson have come up with a unique compromise. The Rams have given Jackson the option to void his contract after the 2012 season, both the Rams and Jackson's agent have confirmed.

It's actually a new contract, one that was re-done right around the time that the Laurinaitis deal was done. But its revised language doesn't change Jackson's base salary in 2012 or 2013, if he decides to stay in St. Louis. He's still due to make $7 million in 2012 . And if he decides to stay in '13, he still makes $7 million as was the case originally.

But in essence, this could become a contract year for Jackson, who has been slowed in the early season by a groin injury.

There are now a variety of things that could take place at the end of this season:

I beleive they did this as a coutesy to him so he could go to a contender and have a chance at winning a ring before it's all said and done. I also beleive that they knew this was coming for a while. Thats why they drafted two RBs in this year's draft. Pead in the 2nd and then Richardson in the 6th.

SJAX has been a workhorse back on a very bad team for a long time. He is a beast with a complete skillset. I would love to see him on contending team that just needs a solid RB. Like the Steelers.

what do you guys think of Jackson's fantasy outlook for the rest of the season? St. Louis offense hasn't been getting anywhere...

Another blow with Amendola out, for Sjax his value to me all depends on his health. When he's healthy and workhorse like he's good for 40 yds rushing 40 yds receiving every week putting him at low end RB2, flex start to me. Probably more of Flex starter because of his health, and how they've been using him, and on top of that the Offense has not been good.
