Mr. Scot

Other team's cuts...

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Steven Jackson will indeed void his $7 million player option, making him a free agent on March 12.

He immediately ascends atop the free-agent running back market, passing Reggie Bush, Rashard Mendenhall, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Shonn Greene. Per the Post-Dispatch, Jackson "more than anything" wants to finish his career with a Super Bowl contender, which is understandable considering he hasn't appeared in a playoff game since 2004. Rams beat writer Jim Thomas calls the Falcons "one of the most likely suitors" for S-Jax. The Rams have kept in contact with Jackson, but so far "no numbers have been exchanged." At age 29, Jackson has enough left in the tank to be a fantasy football beast in Atlanta's high-powered offense.

Speculation by my part. It's a scary thought.

That would indeed be a big win for both sides.

I would really hate to see him wind up with the Broncos.

They have no good RBs and we know how much foxy loves the position.

Antonio Garay's being mentioned as a likely cut to save San Diego about 4M.

$5M is too much for a backup since Liuget-Thomas-Reyes is already going to be the starting unit. IIRC that move would put SD at around 15M under the cap. Garay was inactive the 2nd half of the season.

Other possible cuts for us would be Spikes, which would create 3M in space, Clary would save 2.3M. Gaither would only save us 500K unless he was a June 1, then it would be 3.5M with 3M in dead money next year.
