Checking the validity of Steven Jackson trade rumors

With the rebuilding St. Louis Rams struggling, RB Steven Jackson's name is bound to come up in trade rumors today. And a radio station out of Boston got the rumor mill started.

With the Patriots making a slew of moves today, the thinking goes that they're clearing salary space for a big acquisition. That may or may not be true. Radio station WEEI has added Jackson's name to the speculation, the logic being that NE's moves free up the salary space. Jackson, however, requires $5 million plus in cap space, so cutting a veteran here and there isn't going to get the needed room.

This rumor: Fail.

The Rams aren't trading Jackson.
