Default Broncos to target Steven Jackson ?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA Today Sports

The Denver Broncos have some planning to do as they settle into the waiting period right before free agency begins in a couple weeks. As a team that went 13-3 in 2012, there really is not too many holes to be filled, but executive VP John Elway, head coach John Fox and the rest of his staff have a couple of tough decisions to make with current players. The biggest one in many eyes is whether or not RB Willis McGahee is the answer in 2013.

This is where RB Steven Jackson comes into the talks.

Yes or No ?

I like the Idea. I like big power backs. Sounds like a lot of if's though.

If you're not an avid fan and you just look at our record you would not think that we have many holes to fill. CBS sports wrote it. BTW. I would have written Denver Broncos to scout Clay Matthews

When your 13-3 mainstream doesn't harp on too many holes to fill. That phrase is usually meant for teams who are picking in the top 10 not at the end of a round.


I would take Jackson in a heartbeat. Not a great draft for RBs so getting one via FA is a must IMO.

That's cool with me, just don't let Rahim take control of the landing module and we should be golden.

I don't have a problem with the comment we don't have too many holes to fill. We don't. Remember it's all relative and EVERY team has holes. That's just the reality of sports. No one is great at everything, and the few that are usually aren't the year after.

As for SJ, I would be ok with it, especially if it meant letting McGahee go.

I'm gonna throw something if we sign this guy to a huge deal. I'd rather see Jeremiah Johnson get the carries than that old timer.

I would like to get Steven Jackson in for a good deal. He is a big back that can catch the football which is exactly what Manning needs and can compliment Hillman.

I always heard SJax wasnt all that good at pass blocking. This true? If it is, we won't touch him. I bet Jeremiah Johnson is amazing at pass blocking though

Jeremiah Johnson is so awesome at pass blocking that one time on I-5 he stiff-armed a speeding semi back into its own lane.

I'd sign Steven Jackson if his asking price isn't out of line....you simply can't overpay for a RB that will be 30 next season.

He's getting older, but has held up well....and he's built for longevity.

I think he could have 3 more productive seasons, which would coincide well with the 3 or 4 years Denver will have with Peyton Manning.

Jackson runs tough, is a very good receiver out of the backfield, is a better pass blocker than he is given credit for, and is a leader.

I'm sure he really wants to play for a good team that has a chance of winning a Super Bowl.

The Rams haven't had a winning season during his entire career.

I wouldn't expect any 300+ carries and 1400 yard rushing seasons from Steven Jackson.

I'd expect something in the neighborhood of 225 carries and 1,000+ yards, with 40+ receptions, and stellar pass protection.

More than anything, I'd expect him to step it up in the playoffs and not limp off the field when the team needs him the most ala Knowshon Moreno.

I don't see him as a long term solution, but a perfect compliment to Peyton Manning for a nice 3 year Super Bowl run....if he's willing to take a deal in line with the realization that he is a 30 year old RB.

True story, Moreno was driving the truck.
