Jackson will have the option to explore free agency after the season, raising the question of whether Sunday's finale at Seattle will be his final game in a St. Louis Rams uniform. Jackson intimated Thursday that he might retire at the end of this season. Though he laughed as he said it, the 29-year-old running back didn't retreat from the idea when asked how serious he was about the possibility.||||||| He has expressed interest in ending his career with the only team he's played for as a professional, but he hasn't publicly committed to returning. Coach Jeff Fisher said the team wants him back, but Jackson's demands could price him out of a Rams uniform.
