Steven Jackson Has Officially Voided His Contract: (And As Of This Evening Looks Like He Isn't Coming Back) %$@#!!?? (Plus March 8 Update)

According to Howard Balzer, Steven Jackson has officially voided his contract.

"Per @HBalzer721 The #Rams Steven Jackson has officially voided his contract. That should free up $7 million in cap 13 minutes ago"

Also, from Bleacher Report: (click on link)

I found the tweet in the "Latest Tweets" section of the site "overthecap" (Please click on the link)

This means that Steven Jackson will officially become a free agent on March 12.

I liked the idea of getting a scoop for a change (and posting it) before the front page writer's could get it posted!! (I succeeded!!).

Teams do have a three day window before free agency starts on March 12 to negotiate exclusively with their eligible free agents (please click on link).

This voiding of the contract means the Rams now officially gain 7 million in cap space. Hopefully, the Rams will continue negotiations with Jackson and retain him!!

I just added a poll (missed doing it in my haste to get this post up). Please vote to give input on these latest developments.

Wish I could have two polls!! Instead, I will just ask the question: If the Rams can't bring Jackson back, what should they do??? Stand pat with Pead, Richardson and Ganaway??.....Try to sign a FA such as Chris Ivory or Ahmad Bradshaw???......or draft an Eddie Lacy, Le'Veon Bell or Knile Davis type???

9.25 PM, March 7.....Well this can't be good news......Steven sounds like he isn't coming back after this on Sirius XM NFL:(Click on link)

According to the report of Jackson's comments, it wasn't about the money.......it was about what his reduced role would be in 2013.

March 8 Update Interview With ESPN:

Today's interview is an interesting view from him on voiding his contract, the negotiations he had with the Rams and where he would like to end up.
