In a move that surprises exactly nobody who follows the NFL, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson has apparently decided to void the final year of his contract and test the open market in free agency this March. The immediate speculation has begun that the Packers will begin courting Jackson for his services this year, in order to provide some semblance of a competent running game in Green Bay. However, the Atlanta Falcons appear to be another suitable landing place for the former Ram, as it appears that they are ready to part ways with their own veteran back in Michael Turner. Whether they will look to replace him with another veteran, physical runner who is approximately the same age is yet to be determined.
