With 11,388 career yards, Steven Jackson is the NFL’s active rushing leader. Or at least he would be, if he were currently on a team. Unfortunately for Jackson, training camps are opening and he doesn’t have a team.
In an effort to change that, Jackson is tweeting at the Cowboys.
Jackson took to Twitter on Thursday with an image of his number 39 being projected above the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium.
A player who has to ask teams on Twitter if they’re interested probably isn’t drawing much attention, and in Jackson’s case it’s easy to see why. He’s 32 years old and isn’t the same explosive player he was in his best seasons with the Rams.
Perhaps some team that loses a running back to injury will give Jackson a call, but there’s a good chance we’ve seen the last of him in the NFL. Jackson has had a great career, but it’s a career that may be over.
