Steven Jackson to the Patriots. Seriously, the guy has been wasting his career away for a franchise that has been consistently rebuilding and now he is being asked to wait some more as they bring along Sam Bradford. Watching the 4th quarter last week of that Rams game, they didn't use him at all! So frustrating...he'd be the PERFECT back for this offense moving forward, a la Dillon, and would deliver everything that Maroney never did. We should use some of our picks to bring S-Jax to New England.
I'm no expert on NFL contracts, but it seems like he's going to have the last couple years of his contract voided (he is the highest paid back in the NFL) and for his final contract, he'll probably be a little cheaper.
Dude is durable (sleeping in an altitude tent this season), fit (gained muscle weight this season and maintained 5% body fat) and has never had a chance to be on a good team.
