    Rams Tweak SJax Contract (Still must work out deal for 2013)

    From yardbarker.com

    The St Louis Rams previously restructured Steven Jackson‘s contract back in September, which included a clause that would void Jackson’s current deal if he was on their roster as of the fifth day following the upcoming Super Bowl.
    Howard Balzer reports that the Rams have once again made some adjustments to Jackson’s contract.


    According to Balzer, St Louis reworked Jackson’s deal so that his 2013 prorated signing bonus will now be reflected upon their current cap instead of next year’s. This also removed the roster requirement that would have voided Jackson’s deal in the coming months.
    Balzer adds that this move will not save the Rams any money in terms of their cap next season.


    Jackson is still set to make $7 million in base salary next season, but has said that we would like to get a long-term agreement in place that would allow him to finish his career with the Rams. St Louis appears to be interested in the idea as well, so there’s a pretty decent chance that they’ll come to an agreement before the start of free agency.


    For the time being, we have Jackson listed as the No. 14 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

    I modified the thread titled, which suggested that a new deal was reached.

    No problem I did not want to mislead anybody I just took the heading from the article.

    I really hope this will lead to SJax staying with the Rams!

    Sounds like a good deal for both parties, hopefully they could come to a long-term deal so Steve could retire in blue and gold

    The chart shows St. Louis with $1.8 million in space. The Rams re-worked Steven Jackson's contract to move nearly $1.9 million in cap charges from 2013 into 2012. The change means Jackson's contract will not count against the cap in 2013 if the team releases him or if Jackson exercises an option to become a free agent.

    As it was stated in the original post, this won't actually help our cap for 2013. Teams can elect to move unused cap space to their next year's cap. So, we could have just carried over our 2012 cap room to 2013 and paid for Jax's bonus. I really am not sure as to why we made this move. I'm sure that there is some kind of number fudging that happened, but I dunno.
    I believe!
