  • Trade Steven Jackson

    Why not? He's the only player on this team that has any value to others. This team is going nowhere anyway, why not get some value for the guy while we can, move him to a place where he can win, and start over? The Rams need playmakers, badly. More than just Jackson. Pull a Dallas Cowboys type of trade, get multiple picks for Jackson, and start rebuilding correctly. This Rams team isn't going to win this year and probably next year anyway, so why not get some major value from the one player that can get it?

      If it's an offer we can't refuse I guess we'd kinda have to. I hate to say that because Jackson is my favorite player on the Rams but at this point I'm willing to do anything for the benefit of this team, to get better as quickly as possible...

        Because it would violate the salary cap and cause the Rams to lose draft picks?

            The only problem with the Herschel Walker trade is trying to find our Vikings. I mean who wants to be the one who is responsible for a dynasty? It would have to be multiple first round draft picks, and I'm not sure who would be wiling to sacrifice that. They would have to believe that a runnning back is all they need to be Super Bowl favorites, any ideas? Plus I wouldn't want him in the division, so they Squaks and the Cards are out of it.

            Packers?
            Patriots?
            Nothing really jumps out at me.

              I disagree (see my "fire sale" thread).

              Unless the Rams get 2 (relatively high) first round picks in the deal, I don't see a net gain from a trade.

                After this season I'd be 100% in favor of it. Right now it's impossible. A high first round pick and a second round pick would be fine with me at this point. By the time the Rams are in a position to be competitive, Jackson will be broken or worn out.

                As for teams, Patriots, Saints, Packers, Bills, Ravens, Chargers and always the Redskins for goofy trades as possible contenders. Jackson would be awesome on the Ravens.

                  I would be afraid of what we might do with the picks but itís better to have a quality player you can build around then to let him go for unknowns. Spags wants to run the ball we need a back like SJ if we did not have him we would be looking for one like him in the draft anyway. Yes this team is going nowhere anytime soon but you got to put a team on the field that the fans can get behind we need star talent and sense SJ is the only star in the sky how about lets not shoot him down.

                    Re: Trade Steven Jackson

                    Please watch the 4th quarter of the game yesterday, and watch Jackson play ...

                    Watch how he ran, see how pissed off he was, see how much he cares ...

                    When many on the board were clamoring for him to be pulled from the game, I watched him run, I fed off his intensity, and it reinstilled a sense of being proud to be a Ram's fan, despite the score ...

                    And you REALLY want to send this guy away, for RISKY draft picks?

                    He is going to almost SINGLE-HANDEDLY turn this franchise around, and only part of it will be his great play on the field ...

                    In the next two years, S.J. is going to become THE BACK in the NFL. Look what he is doing with NOTHING around him right now, against 8 and 9 man fronts ...

                      Well said infiniti,

                      I was there yesterday and i saw what you saw, Jackson is the only thing to be proud of on our Offense, I left the game still feeling proud of our Rams even though we had a terrible game with repeated mistakes, because i truely feel were heading in the right direction, the score doesn't show it of course. But if you trade Jax it will set us back even more, we have argueably the best back in the league behind a terrible O-line, i say we trade or release a couple of our O lineman ( Barron and Bell ) if anything and keep trying to peice it together.

                        No, TX. I don't think it's a good idea -- right now, anyway.

                        Jax is the corner stone of the Rams offense even if the Rams offense is presently not producing points. You mentioned 'start over / start rebuilding correctly' as part of this potential trade but I think such procedure is already in motion within our offense. Sure, it's all too painful to watch and bear but that's how it probably would continue to be if we had three, four or seven other (new) players being put into the current project of transforming the Rams under HC Spags.

                        I say let's take the brunt of these growing pains and stick with the plan for another 7 weeks. But I'd hate to see SJ leave -- he's one of our true / few mainstay players.

                          My main train of thought on this is the following: by the time this team gets to the point of contention, is Jackson going to be the same back as he is now? That could be three years more of pounding.

                            Maybe not, maybe he will end his career here like Bettis did in Pittsburgh ...

                              Agreed. SJ IS our offense. We can't let a dude like that go. He's one of the top 5 backs in the league. Lets not make the same mistake we did with Bettis.

                                Trade talk persists regarding Steven Jackson
                                Posted by Mike Florio on October 28, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

                                With the trade deadline only two days away, Rams running back Steven Jackson continues to be at the center of speculation regarding a possible deal that would send him out of St. Louis in his ninth season with the team.

                                In recent years, there has been speculation that the Rams should ship Jackson to a contending team, given that the Rams were anything but contending. Now that the Rams are truly contending, itís odd that theyíd move him.

                                But it has been reported this season that the Rams donít plan on bringing Jackson back next year. If thatís the case, why not get something for him now?

                                And so Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Rams have fielded inquiries regarding Jackson. Though heís not being actively shopped, the Rams are willing to listen.

                                Suitors include the Packers, who donít have much of a running game since the injury to Cedric Benson. Then again, they didnít have much of a running game with Benson.

                                The Rams would have to get a sweet deal in exchange for Jackson. Otherwise, it could be difficult to sell the fans on a decision to send the most popular member of the post-Greatest Show on Turf out of town.

                                Just How Good Is Steven Jackson (Too good to keep?)
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                Right now, Steven Jackson is 3rd in the NFL in rushing yards and 2nd in yards from scrimmage. Alone, those numbers are impressive. But, when considered in the context of the lack of playmakers around Jackson, they are downright amazing. I think one could safely argue that Jackson is one of the top 5 skill position players in football today.

                                He is only 26, so he should have another 3-4 years of "prime" play (absent an injury). He is signed for that period, so the Rams can keep him if they wish.

                                It is inevitable, however, that the question will arise this offseason: should the Rams consider trading Jackson?

                                The argument in favor of trading him is certainly compelling. Does it make sense to put all the team's eggs in Jackson's basket, or should they try to "cash in" the asset for multiple players/draft choices (See the Hershel Walker trade).

                                The argument against trading Jackson is equally compelling. There is no guarantee that draft choices will pan out (See the Eric Dickerson trade), while Jackson is a known commodity that can be the foundation to build around.

                                If it were my decision, I'd publicly state that Jackson will not be traded, but leave a phone line open. Everyone has a price, after all.

                                My price? It would have to be a combination of an established RB, and either: (a) a top-half of the first round pick + a 3rd round pick, or (b) a bottom-half of the first round pick + a 2nd round pick.

                                Ironically, the team most likely to offer such a deal might be the hated Patriots. They have been stockpiling picks for years, and could offer the picks desired along with a guy like Lawrence Maroney. If the Patriots fail to make it back to, at a minimum, the AFC Championship game, I could see them making a bold move to get a guy like Jackson.

                                Whatever happens, though, Jackson is a big key to the Rams' future.

                                I said three years ago we needed to trade Jackson for the reason of worth. Now I see I was wrong. The reason, our Gm, Vp, Hc, dont know how to pull in talent. It sucks that jackson could have had a superbowl or superbowl chance with someone else. I hope that when he does go elsewhere he does get the ring he deserves. I was hated on then for posting we need to trade him and let him move on back then, o well, lets see if a new regime can change our bad habits. Rams moving forward, I hate to look back.

                                Now im aware im about to catch a huge amount of verbal abuse for this post but i ask the reader to hear me out. Steven Jackson is a great runningback currently in this league i think we can all agree there. My point is this. The rams are a rebuilding team. By the time we get to the point where we want to be as an organization, the way sjax is running now and being used, he'll be old and tired. If we traded sjax now we could get some first round picks are some other big names in free agency. Remember the story of jimmy johnson and the cowboys, we can no longer afford one good player and the everyone else sucks. We need stars all over the roster and guys for the future. Id appreciate your thoughts

                                Per rotoworld, so as always, take it as it is:


                                The Rams front office spoke to Steven Jackson before the trade deadline to assure him they never considered moving him.
                                The rumors that Jackson was on the block were way off base. The Rams just wanted to assure their best player that he'll be the face of the franchise for the rest of this season and beyond.

                                Good to know he was never being considered as trade bait. We don't need him thinking negative things about the organization.
