While talking to the media today, Rams running back Steven Jackson hinted that he might retire at the end of this season.
Jackson intimated Thursday that he might retire at the end of this season. Though he laughed as he said it, the 29-year-old running back didn’t retreat from the idea when asked how serious he was about the possibility
“If I have to write my story,” Jackson said Thursday, “I’d rather go out like Barry Sanders and leaving people to want more than to leave too late.”
So, how many more seasons does that mean are left for Jackson?
“Maybe this last one,” he said laughing. “Those hits hurt.”
I’m sure there will be teams interested in signing Jackson in the offseason, but they won’t be willing to pay him big-time money. He might be mentally exhausted from playing football and could end up retiring at the end of the day.
