I think he is probably going to get 3.5 -- 4 million a year + whatever bonus. That's why I did 15.

Jackson will cost over $7 million a year. Draft a RB and bring back the ones on the roster and let them fight it out.

That is the same price Denver will pay for Moreno, McGahee, Hillman and a rookie combined.

Just because his final year of his contract for 7 million was void doesn't mean he is going to get that money. Despite his caliber of career, he is 29. Nobody is going to shell out that for a running back who probably has 2-3 GREAT years lef tin him.

I like the idea of drafting a young RB, signing Jackson, waiving Mcgahee keep Moreno as a bkup and Hillman as a bit player.

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.
dear god please do NOT let this happen. i hate used up old backs. just draft LeVeon Bell in the 2nd or 3rd round and forget these run down backs.

I would love Bell in the 2nd/3rd...but I wouldn't mind SJ either, I have said all along we are a DT and good RB away from going up another level. Add in a Slot, Mike, and OG and we are really doing well.

There is nothing stopping us from signing Jackson and drafting a guy in the mid to late rounds. When you're a team that wants to control the clock with the run like all Fox teams do, you need multiple quality backs. Right now I'm not even sure we have one, especially when you factor in injury issues.

I think I'd rather have Ivory. Jackson seems to get dinged up every game.

Le'Veon Bell could be Steven Jackson's lovechild.

Obviously Jackson is the ultimate prize. I like Reqs 3 year $15 million proposal. McGahee and Moreno account for $6 million against the cap..

This may not be the popular opinion but I think Moreno is average at best..Sure he's solid in pass protection, but he doesn't possess homerun explosiveness and he's not a power back.. Moreno cannot stay healthy.

McGahee also cannot stay healthy, and he's similar to
Moreno but better in his ability to get tough yards..

Ivory would be interesting in that he has homerun explosiveness, and has some ability to fight for tough yards, but he's not a bruiser. His pass protection and ability to catch out of the backfield are unproven...

Jackson to me can do it all.. He even can hit the long homerun.. He's great in pass protection, his hands are soft, his ability to fight for short yardage is great. Imagine him motivated to win and on a team where he's not the focal point of defenses.

It seems that many think SJ is a beast, but will come cheap. If he is superior to all of the Bronco backs, why does anyone think he will come cheap? $15 million over 5 years? Really?

because, the assumption is that the dude has made enough money and now wants to play for a ring on a top team that will still feature him.
we're one of about 3 teams that can offer that and we're under the cap + he's never played with a QB like Manning.

It was suggested that he should be signed for $15 million over 5 years. Ridiculous. I just don't see him voiding a $7 million a year contract to sign a $5 million a year. Yes, the first one is 1 year and the second one is 3 years, but if he gets hurt, the second one might be 1 year also.

I guess I'm just not buying into that theory. I don't think it happens as much as people want to think. I think it happens some in the NBA, but seldom in the NFL. I read several message boards and just about everyone says the same thing. He will give us a great deal because... The Jets board is because he gets to play in NY. The Dolphin board is because of no state tax and South Beach. The Chiefs board because...ok, there is really no reason to want to go to KC.

I suggested three years with a total contract value of 15 million dollars. My guess is that he is going to get around a four year deal upwards of 20 million with bonuses, etc.

You may be correct, but I think he is going to get more than $5 million per year. Unless it is a 3/15 with a lot of guarantees and/or front loaded so that if he is cut, he gets paid a good sum.

We would roll with Jackson running the FB. Even if he's slightly diminished. He'd run right through the arm tackles that took Hillman down consistently and he'd get a lot more than the six yards KM gets when he gets to the second level.

So you think he wants North of $7 million? I think at this point he wants to go to a contender, but of course he wants solid money. ($5million a year range)

Drooling right now thinking about SJ running the power formation. If we want to run it down your throat, we would finally have the RB to deliver punishment and get the tough yards.

It'd be nice to see a guy of his ilk playing on a Championship team and it would be a pleasure cheering for the guy after all he's gone through in St. Louis with their horrid teams. Bet he'd play like a man on a mission.
