Posted March 14, 2013
The Atlanta Falcons have found their replacement for Michael Turner by agreeing to terms with free agent Steven Jackson on a three-year deal. The Falcons announced the agreement on Thursday, but did not release the terms.||||||| The 30-year-old Jackson had 1,042 yards rushing and four touchdowns with the Rams last season. It was his eighth straight season with more than 1,000 yards rushing. Jackson has 10,135 yards rushing, the most of any active player. He set career highs with 1,528 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns with St. Louis in 2006.
Posted Dec. 27, 2012
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.
Posted Dec. 24, 2012

Jackson ran for 73 yards on 13 carries on Sunday against Minnesota.||||||| Jackson also set season highs with eight catches for 77 yards to finish with 150 total yards on the day.
Posted Dec. 10, 2012
Jackson ran for 64 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 15-12 win at Buffalo.||||||| Jackson had a good day, though fantasy owners were surely looking for more against one of the league's worst rush defenses. He faces the Minnesota Vikings at home in Week 15.
