As Steven Jackson Weighs His Options, He Hasn?t Met With The Rams
Rams running back Steven Jackson has yet to sit down with the team to discuss a new contract, less than a month before the start of free agency.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that no meeting has taken place between the Rams and Jackson?s camp, although such a meeting may take place this month at the Scouting Combine.
Jackson has the ability to void the final year of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent. He may also play out the 2013 season on his base salary of $7 million, or work out a new deal with the Rams before free agency starts on March 12.
A month ago, Jackson said he was undecided on his future but was considering all of his options, including returning to the Rams, testing free agency or retiring. It appears that Jackson is no closer to choosing from among those options.
