S. Jackson looking to catch on with playoff team-- Thu May 14 7:00 am --
Rebuilding franchise not in running backs' plans
"I don't want to go to a team that is rebuilding and needs me to come on and teach guys how to be professional," Steven Jackson said. "I've done that. I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control."(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Jackson hasn't had many takers in free agency thus far and will likely need a camp injury to secure a spot on a contender. Jackson is 31-years old and averaged 3.6 yards per carry during his two seasons in Atlanta.
Falcons release Steven Jackson-- Thu Feb 26 8:00 pm --
Team will save $3.75 million against the cap
The Falcons released veteran running back Steven Jackson today, the team confirmed. The team will save $3.75 million against the salary cap with the move. His cap number was slated to be $4.9 million and the dead money against the cap is his prorated signing bonus of $1.1 million.(Atlanta Journal Constitution)
FF Today's Take:Jackson's two-year stay in Atlanta has come to an end. He averaged 3.6 yards per carry after signing a 3-year deal back in March of 2013. The Falcons will move forward with Devonta Freeman and could possibly re-sign Jacquizz Rodgers and/or Antone Smith... both are free agents. The Falcons could also look for running back help in the upcoming draft. Jackson will be 32 in late July.
