Steven Jackson: ‘Retirement is an option’

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.

Jackson also talked about playing with Marshall Faulk, saying he learned from the Hall of Famer “how to be a pro on and off the field”. He later added that it’s a process that current Rams backup Daryl Richardson is learning as well. The veteran also talked quarterbacks, namely Rams signal-caller Sam Bradford and 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, describing the latter as “definitely the real deal”.

Finally, the former Oregon State star reveals his choice for the best uniforms in Rams history — and hopes that maybe that uniform can bring the franchise the kind of luck it hasn’t had in more than a decade.
