Steven Jackson has now been a hold out for eight days. Some quick math will tell you that Steven Jackson has now racked up $120,000 in fines. Things are all quiet on the signing front. Scott Linehan in his usual baby mode called Steven and had this to say about part of the call“I called him, talked to him briefly to see how he was doing,” Linehan said. “It has nothing to do with anything other than letting him know that everything’s going to be OK.” Thats right coach make sure you let the player who is skipping out of the hot training camp days, holding out, and going to get 50+ million dollars soon know that everything is going to be alright. I am sure Jackson was sweating it before your call. No news sources have reported anything new today Friday August 1st.
I would like to point out to fans that you never miss what you have until it is gone. For those of you that are tired of Steven Jackson I would like you to watch the video below.
