The Rams have a long history of great running backs. Todd Gurley Authentic Mats Zuccarello Jersey , the 2017 NFL offensive player of the year, is the latest to carry the torch while carrying the ball for the Rams.

“I’m a history freak,” former Rams running back Steven Jackson said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “And when it comes to the Rams’ organization, if there’s one thing we do, we pick running backs well.”

Jackson is in the Hall of Very Good after rushing for 10,138 yards and 56 touchdowns while catching 407 passes for 3,324 yards and eight touchdowns in his nine years with the Rams. He finished his career with 11 Authentic Ronnie Harrison Jersey ,438 rushing yards, 3,683 receiving yards and 78 touchdowns.

He becomes Hall eligible in 2021 but doesn’t appear a first-ballot guy.

Eric Dickerson and Marshall Faulk already are in the Hall of Fame after spending parts of their careers with the Rams. Jackson, though, argues that he’s the best running back ever to put on the Rams’ uniform.

“Sometimes, I talk to current fans here [in Los Angeles] and there’s an argument of who’s the greatest running back to be a Ram,” said Jackson, a three-time Pro Bowler who never made All-Pro. “I think it’s me.

“Look at the record book. Everybody has their pick.”

Dickerson played less than five seasons with the Rams before they traded him to the Colts Semyon Varlamov Jersey , but he gained 7,245 of his 13,259 rushing yards with the franchise that drafted him. He also scored 56 of his 90 career touchdowns with the Rams.

Faulk played seven of his 12 seasons with the Rams, gaining 6,959 of his 12,279 rushing yards and 4,071 of his 6,875 receiving yards with St. Louis. He scored 85 of his 136 touchdowns while with the Rams.

Both Dickerson and Faulk were highly decorated with multiple All-Pro nods and other awards Minkah Fitzpatrick Color Rush Jersey , including Faulk’s MVP award in 2000. That’s among the reasons they are in the Hall of Fame and Jackson could have a long wait if he ever gets in.

Hall of Famer Jerome Bettis spent three of his 13 seasons with the Rams, rushing for 3,091 yards with them.

The timing seems odd, but there could be more to the story.

A day after Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston formally learned that he’ll be suspended for the first three games of the regular season, word emerged that he had parted ways with his agents. As one league source explains it to PFT, the change had been in the works for a few months.

According to the source, Winston wants more experienced football agents to handle his next contract. Baseball agents Greg Genske and Kenny Felder negotiated Winston’s first contract, a wage-scale deal that culminated in the Bucs automatically picking up a non-negotiable 2019 option worth $20.9 million.

If that’s the case Torrey Smith Jersey , the timing still seems unusual. With the Bucs not likely to open contract talks with Winston any time soon, why not let the dust fully settle on the three-game suspension? The move instead seems to be a reaction to the suspension, and in turn an indictment of their efforts to get him the best possible deal with the NFL, managing to cut the baseline suspension in half and, perhaps more importantly, to conceal from public view specific details that could have sparked a public outcry culminating in Winston being cut.

It remains to be seen whether other agents clamor to be associated with Winston. While he’ll surely secure representation from someone, it would be interesting to know how many times he hears “no” before he finds someone who will take him on as a client.
