As a Bills fan now hopefully that Idiot of an agent (Eugene Parker) could focus on getting Jason Peters to report........

For those who don't know Parker represents both Jackson and Peters

Steven Jackson ends holdout, will report

Steven Jackson has decided to end his holdout and will report to the Rams on Wednesday evening.

He will resume practicing on Friday. The sides have not agreed to a new contract, but Jackson is confident enough an agreement will be reached to report to the team. He has 18 days to get up to speed with the offense, which is plenty in our opinion. Jackson's fines for missing camp totaled $408,132. Aug. 20 - 4:26 pm et

Well isn't his face red. He lost 400 g's and got little to nothing accomplished. Sucks.

At the end of the day, Jackson will get his money. The Rams just weren't going to give him his cash to get him to report. There is basically a small hitch in negotiations that will be resolved once he is at practice.

Yes, EF, that's what he meant, but it's not so funny anymore once you explain the joke.

That earned him a neg rep from me.

Most RB's that hold out in till middle of preseason get hurt something to watch for.

I'm not shocked, Jackson has seen what 300+ carries a season can do to the average running back. He wants to cash in now before his body takes a major hit.

Jackson says a deal has been agreed to in principle. (http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/sports/stories.nsf/rams/story/7C56FFAC8BCEB079862574AC00139157?OpenDocument)

According to league sources, the Rams offered a seven-year, $50 million extension in late July, a deal that included $17 million in guaranteed money.

If he didn't take that I wonder how much he is going to get now

It's never only the overall numbers, it's the details. How the money is divvied up.

He can now prove to everyone except for me that he is the 2nd best RB in the league.

Almost $10 million a year? Overpaid, imo

Meh, good for him. He deserves the money. For the short career life-span RB's have and the beating they take, they should be one of the most paid.

Its not overpaying for a top 5 RB in the league. And I don't see AD, LT, Addai, or Westbrook becoming free agents and wanting to come play for the Rams, so good for Jackson we needed him, and most of all that 65 million dollar piece of **** we have at QB needed him.

its really only a three year deal, the last two years get void

this is actually not good news for Buffalo Fans with the situation going on with Jason peters


so far the Rams and the Bears have caved into the holdouts and paid a ridiculous (more than needed, actually) amount of money on a single player

It might seem like a lot but as Bertrand Berry said, everyone in the NFL is on a one year deal.

So you wanna short change your Pro-Bowl LT? Pay him what he's worth and let it be. He's more important to that team than just about anyone else.

the problem is, the bills have been working on Lee Evans extension all offseason.

if they were to just stop and give peters a new contract. what kind of message would that give to Evans or the other players in the locker room?


being a small market team, the bills literally cant afford for players to holdout every offseason for more and more money and in a way* handcuff the bills cap

well you guys could focus on signing your very promising WR and franchise LT instead of giving guards a googilion dollars and paying Kawika Mitchel anything more than a mil a year...

We signed Dockery just after we gave Peters a 5 year deal.
If we needed to free some up, there might be room in Will James' salary...

How so? He's a top 5 back. I think his deal is lower than what he should have gotten.


I say we trade Bulgers contract with Jacksons so Bulger has Jacksons and Jackson has Bulgers.

I don't think any running back other than LT is worth $10 million

kawika mitchel was signed to a 5yr 17mil contract
dockery got 7 year 49mil


when u are a small market team like buffalo, u have to overpay for average free agents.

is it the small market or the lack of success?
