The Los Angeles Rams ink Steven Jackson to a one-day contract in order to officially retire as a member of the Rams. The surprise announcement came during the Rams’ training camp day and dedicated the day to Ram legends.
Jackson spent nine seasons with the St. Louis Rams and became the franchise all-time leading rusher with 10,138 yards. Despite being on some of the worst teams in franchise history, he still managed to earn 15,121 total yards and 78 touchdowns throughout his career. He did play two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons before hanging up the cleats with the New England Patriots in 2015.
Jackson’s numbers speak for themselves and is regarded as one of the best running backs to ever play the game. He did have Marshall Faulk as a mentor though. Jackson didn’t play on many winning seasons, and is considered one of the most underrated players in franchise history. Even though the contract was to honor Jackson to retire in Rams colors, it still looks like Jackson can lace up the cleats again and bulldoze over defenders.
