Rams sign Steven Jackson, he retires as a Ram

Myles Simmons
RAMS INSIDER

Running back Steven Jackson made countless plays over the course of his career as a Ram.

He made an impact from the time he entered the league as a first-round pick out of Oregon State. He rushed for 673 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie in 2004 — helping the Rams secure a playoff berth and defeat the Seahawks in the Wild Card round.

From there, Jackson recorded eight consecutive seasons with 1,000 yards rushing from 2005-2012 — his last season with the club. In the process, Jackson became the Rams’ all-time leading rusher with 10,138 yards in 131 games.

Now as the Rams continue their 2019 training camp, Jackson has signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the organization.

It’s fitting for someone who has meant so much to the franchise. And as No. 18 in all-time rushing yards — one of just 21 players to eclipse 11,000 — Jackson has a case to eventually be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Very sloppy game in all three phases by both teams I thought guys. The RBs for both teams and two linebackers, Cory Littleton (gun, the difference in the end) and Shaq Thompson the only players to play well imo.

Cam's a huge worry, I'm all for him hitting a higher completion percentage by if he can't stretch the field we are f’ed. We kept Donald quiet on the interior but left Fowler to roam free far too often.

Interesting how McVay only used Gurley between the 20s. Malcolm Brown the goal line TD vulture is going to drive fantasy players mad...haha

That cut on Weddles head from the CMac hurdle, fu** me, a heap of blood.

You were the better team, Margin was kind to us, we were never really in it....far too sloppy from us in the first half especially. GG.

Agreed sloppy game but not without its highlights. McCaffrey is a gun and it was great to see some great plays from Woods ad Gurley on our side.

I remember when Cam was at his best it was almost like run first throw later -- now he seems to sit in the pocket and it's way too predictable.

Not sure why he doesn't run more ... maybe the hits have taken toll?

I thought if not for some silly errors the Panthers could quite easily have won it. Lost it on turnovers 3-1.

Pleased to get the W first up but we will have to significantly improve if we are to beat the Saints next week.

Good win at home against the Saints. 2-0. Helped that AD knocked Drew Brees out of the game early -- it will be interesting to see if he will miss weeks because of it.

Cooper Kupp's run after the catch was awesome.
