What Steven Jackson's release means for the Falcons

A closer look at the Falcons' cap space and running back corps without Steven Jackson. The Falcons released Steven Jackson after two years in Atlanta, leaving the running back depth chart unsettled and freeing up some space in the process. Here's what this means for the team, in a nutshell. Cap savings The Falcons save $3.75 million against the 2015 salary cap by cutting Jackson, and with additional cuts today, they'll have over $30 million to play around with. We all expect this team to be aggressive about filling a couple of key positions of need in free agency, so having that kind of...

2015 NFL Free Agency: Falcons part ways with RB Steven Jackson

Steven Jackson is the latest veteran running back to be handed his walking papers; could the Steelers be in the running for a veteran ball carrier? As rushing attacks seemed to ween in the later part of the 2000's and passing offenses and timeshare backfield emerged as the preeminent form of offensive game plans, RB Steven Jackson seemed to be one of the only true workhorses left in the league.  Interestingly, Jackson has seemingly been an under-the-radar player for the duration of his career, posting perhaps the most quiet 15,000 scrimmage yards and 77 touchdowns in league history. A...

Atlanta Falcons release Steven Jackson

The Atlanta Falcons made a move on Thursday most people were expecting, as they decided to release running back Steven Jackson. The move clears $3.75 million in cap space. The Falcons signed Jackson in 2013 after he was able to void his contract with the St. Louis Rams. Unfortunately, Jackson immediately went off the career cliff when he joined the Falcons. He had eight straight 1,000-yard seasons leading up to his departure from St. Louis. In Atlanta, he played in 27 games over two seasons, and rushed for a combined 1,250 yards, averaging 3.6 yards per carry. My guess is Jackson hangs up...

Steven Jackson Cut by the Falcons

A short stint comes to a close. What many felt was a foregone conclusion has come to pass. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Falcons released RB Steven Jackson, per source. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 27, 2015 When Jackson was signed during the 2013 off-season, many fans were excited about having the bruising back in what looked to be an already potent offense. Many thought he would help the Falcons deal with issues they had on short yardage carries and by all accounts, he was still in phenomenal shape - even if he did have significant wear and tear on the treads. The reality...

Cutting Steven Jackson seems like an inevitable move for the Falcons

The legendary running back may, as Pro Football Talk put it, be nearing the end of the line. Steven Jackson's impending release feels like the single most inevitable move of the offseason for the Atlanta Falcons, and it has felt that way for many months now. It feels so inevitable that I wasn't going to even write it up, but then I realized plenty of you are still talking about S-Jax's fate, and the predictions are now coming in fast and furious. When Vaughn McClure at ESPN and Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk alike are predicting you're not long for a team, you probably are not. From...
