Rams running back Steven Jackson may end up in Atlanta, according to Jim Thompson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Jackson plans to void the final year of his contract and thus become a free agent for the first time in his career. The Falcons appear to be likely suitors:

One of the most likely suitors is Atlanta, which according to reports plans to release veteran back Michael Turner. When you’re as close to the Super Bowl as the Falcons, it makes sense adding a veteran running back — even if he has only a couple of more years left — to get you over the top.

Turner, 31, rushed for 800 yards (13.9 yards per game) with 10 touchdowns; Jackson, 29, had 1,042 rushing yards last season and four touchdowns.

The Rams are still talking to Jackson's agent about a new deal to keep in him St. Louis, but no numbers have been exchanged thus far.
