    Re: Report: SJAX want's new contract, may be traded!

    Just listened to the Simmons/Lombardi interview.

    It was weird. Its not like Lombardi was breaking a story based upon a recent conversation with Jackson. He simply stated that Jacksons "wanted to re-do his contract" and "wasn't happy in St. Louis" as if he was stating well-known facts.

    I think this was just an off-the-cuff comment by someone who doesn't really focus on the Rams. Nothing more.

    This "Not happy in STL" is both suspicious and worrisome to me (I won't lose sleep over it but still).

    Keep Jax, bring TR at No. 6 ... or best RB available!

    Interesting that, in the hours since this report surfaced, not one member of the media has claimed to have heard that SJax wants a new contract.

    Apparenty, Mike Lombardi is the only person in the media who directly communicates with Steven Jackson. Despite the fact that Lombardi has no connection to the Rams, SJax has selected him to be his personal Metatron to spread his word accross the lands. How jealous Jim Thomas, Bernie Miklasz and Jim Gordon must be.

    Either that, or Lombardi was speaking from his posterior.

    And... on top of that, they will trade Jackson for a 3rd or 4th round pick?


    I'm not buying it.
    Rams would only need to trade with Cleveland.
    I love SJ, but kinda like the idea. Get TR, lose a 2nd, and pick up a 3rd or 4th, and drop $7M in cap space this year.

    What makes you think it would be that easy? If I'm Cleveland, before I give up the chance to take TRich, I'd ask for a heck of a lot more than a 2nd round pick.

    I was a bit skeptical of the article too, only because I've seen SJAX so many times. He's too much of a class act in my opinion to be involved in such a situation.

    Pretty funny that this 'Jackson is unhappy with his contract' stuff comes out just days before the draft.

    Jax gonna get paid no doubt. We need to focus on Blackmon. If we go Trent we still need a receiver and it will be more expensive in the long run to fill needs. This is nothing more but a distraction. Don't believe the hype!

    Current contract expires after 2013 season, he'd be 30 at that time.

    I point out that drafting richardson and trading jackson does not save us 7 million in cap. First of all, Richardson will get real money, so whatever he gets paid, you have to deduct from the 7 million before you start with savings. Second, and i am not sure on this one, but i believe if the rams trade jackson they will have an acceleration cap wise of the unamortized portion of his signing bonus, which potentially adds an additional cap hit this year.

    In short, i don't believe this report either. When jackson was holding out, he was not shy about it. If he had something to say, i believe that we would have heard it by now.

    At this time of year, right before the draft, the wombats and rumour mongers are really out in full force.

    ramming speed to all

    Sounds like two NFL hacks doing a bit of journalistic 'Tebowing'....news where there ain't none. Guess it helps NFL.com's hit count.
