Steven Jackson Says He Can Still Contribute

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson says at the age of 29, he’s still got several years left in him as a frontline starting back, according to Yahoo! Sports.

''You do hear the echoes and the whispers,'' Jackson said. ''It's doable, I just have to make sure I continue to take care of myself the way I have, and continue to believe in myself.''

Jackson believes that while some running backs tend to burn out in the league through wear and tear by their late 20’s, he can follow the route that Emmitt Smith and Marcus Allen took to be more effective later in their careers. The 29-year-old says he’s much smarter than when he came into the league in 2004, and just as physical.

Last season Jackson ran for 1145 yards and five touchdowns. The Oregon State product has run for 1000-or-more yards in each of the past seven seasons.
