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.

Coach Jeff Fisher said the team wants him back, but Jackson's demands could price him out of a Rams uniform.
