    The Minnesota Vikings are floating the rumor around that Steven Jackson wants a pay raise to trick the St. Louis Rams into trading up to the third pick.
    Gotta be a joke, right? This is just comical. The Vikings floating a rumor about a RAMS player, in an attempt to fool the Rams?? The Vikings would somehow be privy to this revelation, while the Rams are oblivious to it??

    Thursday can't get here soon enough.

    I could see him being worried about getting an extension on his contract, because he as well as every1 else knows he won't be getting any big/lengthy contracts at 30 years old when we've put tons of mileage on him. But I don't think this is how he would handle the situation. If it was the case, that he wants out or wants a contract, I can't see why he wouldn't just come out and say that it's true.

    Given his age, his best move would obviously be to finish out his current contract, which pays him $14M over the next two years. Whatever happens after that is gravy.

    Seriously. Any contract he gets from here on out is sure to be back-loaded, for when the wheels inevitably fall off. It would be hard to command greater than a 7 mill/year average at this age, and with the mileage he has accumulated.

    And there I go, humoring this ridiculous "report". "You're better than this..."

    My Sources tell me " Nfl.com reporter Michael Lombardi couldn't think of a legit story in time of his deadline and came up with a non-story about Steven Jackson's contract. He is now thinking about changing his 'tv last name Lombardi' back to Dufus"

    Jim Thomas just posted this on his chat:

    OK, a lot of questions about this on the chat, So I'll try to answer this one time. First off, I don't like to write about rumors or speculation, even though I check out most of them to be on the safe side. But by writing about them, it just gives credence and more attention to them, and many of them are just flat out wrong. On Jackson
    1.) There are absolutely no indications that he is unhappy with his contract.
    2.) Two team officials told me they are unaware that Jackson wants a new contract.
    3.) It makes no sense to trade Jackson unless you know you can get Richardson. And as I pointed out earlier in this chat, why not keep both and make running back a position of strength?
    4.) The Rams need help in tons of positions. They're not one player away. They need more picks, not less. So unless they could move up for Richardson on the cheap, why do it?

    If this is the Vikes or just rumors, how long before SJ tweets or has his agent release a statement to kill the rumors?

    So now Evan Silva is joining the fray?

    Evan Silva ‏@evansilva
    #Rams will shop Steven Jackson during draft, but $7M base in '12 & '13. So much wear on tires. S-Jax nets 4th-round pick, best case.

    SJ has shown to be very loyal and stuck with the Rams all these bad years. It would be out of character for him to demand a trade now.
