Former St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson is meeting with the New England Patriots today:

The Patriots are in a crunch at RB right now having just added Montee Ball to their current crop of Brandon Bolden and James White with Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount both out for the season.

I'd be lying if I suggested I wasn't pulling for this to work in AxJax's favor. I've been a public advocate for his Hall of Fame case for a while now, especially in this climate.

Jackson, who spent his first nine NFL seasons with the Rams, ranks 18th in career rushing yards with 11,388 ahead of Hall of Famers John Riggins, O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Larry Csonka. He's also tied for 32nd with 68 career rushing touchdowns ahead of Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas.

The Rams went 44-99-1 despite Jackson's stellar career.
