Steven Jackson will consider retirement

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson told Michael Fabiano of NFL.com that he plans on sitting down with the Rams this offseason.  He hasn’t ruled out the possibility of retiring.

Steven Jackson told fantasy editor Michael Fabiano he plans to sit down with the St. Louis Rams in the offseason to determine his options, but admitted that “retirement is an option” if he’s not entirely happy. The veteran back referred to the retirement Detroit Lions great Barry Sanders as an example of a player who walked away in his prime instead of staying in the game too long.

Even at the age of 29, Jackson was able to rush for over 1,000 yards this season.  He’ll be 30 years-old when next season begins and it’s pretty obvious he’s starting to slow down like every other running back that’s approaching the age of 30.
