Steven Jackson has now been a hold out for eleven days. Steven Jackson has now racked up $165,000 in fines! This is starting to get serious and it looks like the St. Louis Rams will stay true to their word of not negotiating with Steven until he enters camp. Jackson will almost certainly be forced to come to camp this week since players under contract must report at least 30 days before the first regular-season game or they forfeit a season of NFL seniority. With the Rams opening the season Sept. 7 at Philadelphia, Jackson must report by Friday or risk losing a year toward unrestricted free agency. It could be bad news if the Rams let this play out until Jackson is forced to come to camp. If Jackson starts the season without a new long term contract I do not think things will play out well. Jackson is going to get paid, and if not by the Rams than someone else.
We say sign three nine!!!!
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 Steven Jackson video below. At 6′-2″ and 230 pounds Steven Jackson is a rare explosive power back. Jackson is only 25 years old and already is close to 6000 total yards in his career. You don’t drive away a feature back, you sign him!
