Jeff Fisher Says Contract Talks Between Rams, RB Steven Jackson 'Look Good'
Rams coach Jeff Fisher says negotiations on a new contract for running back Steven Jackson are progressing well.
Jackson has one year left on his contract at $7 million but is expected to void the deal and become a free agent. The Rams want him back, but only with a restructured contract.
Jackson, who turns 30 in July, has talked about the possibility of retiring, but all signs point to him playing on.
“We’ve had discussions with Eugene Parker (Jackson’s agent), and thus far things look good,” Fisher said at the Scouting Combine, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I think it’s identifying what both sides want moving forward. ‘Jack’ knows how I feel about him and that we want him back. But we’ve got time. We’ve got a few more weeks and we’ll see where it goes.”
