RB Steven Jackson, cut by Falcons, isn't planning to retire
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Though he's without a team at the moment, running back Steven Jackson has no plans to retire. 

The Falcons officially released Jackson Thursday night, with immediate questions emerging about his future. On his own website, though, Jackson posted a statement saying he isn't hanging up the cleats just yet.  

"A lot has been written lately about my future," Jackson wrote. "There are questions about my age, and what I have left in the tank. Of that, I will simply say this. For the first nine years of my career, I was used like a battering ram, punishing opposing defense over four quarters of a game. Maybe you stopped me the first five times I got the ball, but by the 15th or 20th time I got it, late in a game -- let's just say you were really feeling me at that point.

"Make no mistake: I can still punish a defense. I still have a warrior's heart. There are 1,000-yard seasons left in these legs. I know what I am still capable of, and I have every intention of proving it."

Jackson also admitted his two seasons with the Falcons were a disappointment as the organization did not reach the postseason in either season. He combined for only 1,250 yards in 2013 and 2014 after posting eight consecutive seasons with over 1,000 yards when he was with the Rams.

Falcons release running back Steven Jackson
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Falcons released running back Steven Jackson on Thursday, the team announced.

Jackson was owed $3.75 million in 2015, but with running back Devonta Freeman on the roster, it appears Jackson is expendable. In 2014, Jackson rushed for 707 yards and six touchdowns on 190 carries.

By cutting Jackson, the Falcons saved $3.7 million against the salary cap, reports the NFL Network.

Report: RB Steven Jackson not expected back with Falcons
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan wouldn't say whether veteran Steven Jackson will be back with the Falcons, saying only that he's still evaluating the running backs, reports ESPN.com. The website does not expect the Falcons to retain Jackson, who's owed $3.75 million in 2015.

Shanahan said he loved running back Devonta Freeman coming out of college. Freeman averaged 3.8 yards per carry as a rookie but caught 30 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown. If the Falcons part ways with Jackson, who turns 32 this summer, Freeman would be in for a sizable workload.

Report: Falcons' Steven Jackson won't play vs. Panthers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Steven Jackson will not play Sunday's pivotal regular season finale against the Panthers, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. He compiled 707 yards and six touchdowns on the ground this season. If Jackson is inactive, Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Rodgers received 12 touches and Freeman got eight against the Saints.

Atlanta opened up as a 2 1/2-point home favorite. The line has now moved to 3 points in favor of the Falcons. The winner takes the NFC South title.
