    Jeff Fisher: No Truth to Jackson Rumors (in case anyone wasn't already convinced)

    Fisher: No truth to Jackson rumors
    BY JIM THOMAS stltoday.com | Posted: Wednesday, April 25, 2012 11:32 am
    During the Rams’ pre-draft press conference Wednesday, coach Jeff Fisher doused rumors that Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson was unhappy with his contract.
    "I think you stated it accurately," Fisher responded to a questioner. "Rumors.
    "Steven’s here in the offeason program. He’s upstairs every other day (where the coaches’ offices are located). He’s doing great. Having fun. Learning the offense. No discussion, conversation, or anything along that sort to my knowledge."
    Jackson has two years left on his current deal and is scheduled to make $7 million in both the 2012 and 2013 seasons. If he wants a new contract, those close to Jackson say it would be for an extension — because he wants to retire a Ram and feels he has more than two years left as a player — not because he wants more money in 2012 or ’13.
    As for speculative reports that Jackson may be traded, or that the Rams were shopping him, Fisher replied: "Same thing. We talk about the potential ways of improving the roster. But his name has not been floated out there, and I don’t know where it’s coming from.
    "There were some rumors back when we did the trade with the Redskins that Sam (Bradford)’s name was floated out there. People are just trying to create some excitement."

    "Convinced" ... LOL!

    "People are just trying to create some excitement." -- Fisher
    Isn't that the truth almost everywhere, every day.

    Now let's see if Goodell, NFLN and/or the NFLPA can come down hard on Lombardi.
