According to Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network via Rotoworld.com, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson wants a new contract. He’s scheduled to make $7 million in both 2012 and 2013.
Lombardi believes the Rams will try to draft Alabama’s Trent Richardson as soon as possible in order to get rid of Jackson.
“The problem with Steven Jackson is he wants to redo his contract,” Lombardi said. “He’s not happy where he is. … I would suspect that the Rams would (draft) the running back as quickly as they could.”
Lombardi also said the Minnesota Vikings are lure the Rams into trading up to the 3rd pick in order to draft Richardson
