RB Steven Jackson found a home on free agency’s third official day. Compared to the previous two, it was relatively quiet. However, let’s examine this specific acquisition.
When St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson hit the free agent market, teams flooded with interest in acquiring the veteran powerback.
Jackson ended up signing with the Atlanta Falcons, where he will serve as RB Michael Turner’s much-needed replacement. Jackson is 6’2″, 240 pounds meanwhile Turner is 5’10”, 247 pounds.
Jackson will team up with RB Jacquizz Rodgers and will be a factor in both the run game and aerial attack. Adding a more consistent back to this offensive arsenal was undoubtedly crucial, especially considering that the Falcons are aiming for a ring and nothing less.
