St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson will not be joining the Green Bay Packers, according to his coach.
The Mustache, AKA Jeff Fisher, says Jackson is staying put.
“The Steven Jackson rumors are rumors,” Fisher said, during a media briefing at Rams Park. “He’s our running back.
“We’re not calling around, nor are we getting calls for that matter. Put that to rest.”
The NFL’s trade deadline is tomorrow and the Packers were reportedly interested in acquiring the 29-year-old. Jackson has rushed for more than 1,000 yards in seven seasons and has more than 400 this year.
Back on the home front, Mike McCarthy is saying Alex Green, the Packers current starting back, is his guy, although we may see more of James Starks.
Whoever is getting the handoffs probably won’t matter though, since T.J. Lang, Jeff Saturday and Bryan Bulaga can’t block anyone.
