    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Sees limited work Sunday

    Jackson was on the field for 11 of the Patriots' 83 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Broncos in the AFC title game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Jackson, who carried four times for eight yards with a TD in the game, is slated to become a free agent this offseason, and at this stage it's unclear how much interest the Patriots will have in retaining the 32-year-old Jackson, who logged 21 carries for 50 yards and a TD for the team in two regular season contests in 2015.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Manages 18 yards total offense in Divisional Round victory

    Jackson gained 16 yards on six carries and secured one of two targets for two yards in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round victory over the Chiefs. The 32-year-old received limited opportunity on the ground, with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski all on the field for the first time since November. On the other hand, Jackson was essentially the entire Patriots' rushing attack, as James White, who tallied a single carry, was the only other back to tote the ball for New England. With the Patriots' running game a true week-to-week proposition, it remains virtually impossible to project what Jackson's usage might be in the AFC Championship Game next week.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Heads Week 17 backfield

    Jackson was on the field for 24 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In his second game withe team, Jackson ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 14 carries, while also catching one pass for 20 yards. Meanwhile, James White saw 23 snaps, while Brandon Bolden was on the field for 17, while also seeing special teams work. As the postseason approaches, the Patriots figure to employ some form of a running back committee, though at this stage, coach Bill Belichick indicates that the team believes that Jackson can help out on all three downs, a scenario that makes the veteran newcomer worthy of targeting in postseason formats, with the understanding that White figures to remain the team's primary pass-catching back.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Finds end zone in second game with Patriots

    Jackson ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. He also grabbed his only target for a 20-yard gain. The veteran was more effective in his second game as a Patriot, but he hit the sidelines early, along with the rest of the starters, because of the team's overall poor showing. Jackson received the most carries of any New England back Sunday, and he should carry a heavy load in the postseason, along with Branden Bolden and James White. The Patriots will go on bye next weekend before beginning their postseason run the following week.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Rushes for 15 yards Sunday

    Jackson was on the field for nine of the Patriots' 56 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, in his debut with the team, Jackson carried seven times for 15 yards. Looking ahead, we'd expect Jackson's role in the Patriots' offense to increase, but for the time being Brandon Bolden (27 snaps Sunday) remains in the team's early-down mix and James White's pass-catching role should remain stable. It's an arrangement that makes Jackson a speculative fantasy play in Week 17 against the Dolphins, though the veteran power back could emerge as a fantasy factor by the time the postseason rolls around.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Expected to suit up Sunday

    Jackson is slated to be active Sunday against the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It remains to be seen how much of a workload the 32-year-old back will see in his debut with the Patriots, but if things go as hoped, he could progress to absorbing a decent share of the team's "big back" duties previously handled by LeGarrette Blount. Jackson's presence will also allow the Patriots to use Brandon Bolden more on special teams, with James White slotting in as the team's top change-of-pace/pass-catching back and versatile newcomer Joey Iosefa on hand for depth purposes.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Signing made official

    The Patriots have made their signing of Jackson official The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder brings added size, depth and experience to a New England backfield that has seen both Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount land on IR. It remains to be seen how much of a workload the 32-year-old Jackson will see for the Patriots out of the gate, but as the weeks roll on, he figures to absorb a decent share of the team's "big back" duties, previously handled by Blount. Moreover, his addition figures to allow the Patriots to use Brandon Bolden more on special teams, while James White slots in as the team's change-of-pace/pass-catching back and fellow newcomer Joey Iosefa provides RB/FB versatility.

    Patriots' Steven Jackson: Signing with Patriots

    Jackson is expected to sign with the Patriots on Monday, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports. Jackson visited with the Patriots last week and previously played under offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels while both were with the Rams. Given that familiarity, as well as New England's season-ending injuries to running backs Dion Lewis (knee) and LeGarrette Blount (hip), adding an accomplished tailback like Jackson certainly makes sense. At 32 years old, Jackson's best days are behind him, but his veteran presence should help bolster the Patriots' running back group of James White, Brandon Bolden and Joey Iosefa moving forward.

    Steven Jackson: Drawing interest from Patriots

    Jackson will visit with the Patriots on Wednesday, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. It's not clear just how interested the Patriots are in Jackson's services, but with LeGarrette Blount (hip) out for the season, the team is considering adding him for the stretch run. Jackson is familiar with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels from their days with the Rams, and the two sides have advanced to the point where they are willing to consider a partnership. Expect a report to come out in the near future announcing whether or not they were able to come to a deal.

    Running back Steven Jackson still hoping to play in 2015

    Although running back Steven Jackson remains a free agent, he doesn't want to retire, but he also wants to play for a winning team, reports ESPN.com. "I don't want to go to a team that is rebuilding and needs me to come on and teach guys how to be professional," Jackson said. "I've done that. I've been more than vocal about wanting to help young guys, but at some point I have to be a little selfish. I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control." Jackson, 31, has only been to the postseason once during his 11-year career and he hopes to find an opportunity on a playoff-caliber team. "That's the thing," Jackson said. "I have all the things I've accomplished personally, but I've still never been on a team that won more than eight games. That would be definitely one of the things that I'm looking for is that opportunity in my next chapter." Regardless of which team he plays for in 2015, he said there is one team he would like to end his career with. "I definitely want to retire as a Ram," Jackson said. "It's definitely something I want and that would be to go back."
