The St. Louis Post-Dispatch disputes reports that Steven Jackson is dissatisfied with his contract and could be traded or released.
Team officials are unaware of any contract request by Jackson, who was reportedly "taken aback" by reports that he could be released or dealt if the Rams drafted Trent Richardson. Due to earn $7 million in each of the next two seasons, S-Jax is content with his contract, but would also be open to an extension to finish his career in St. Louis. The Rams would only trade up for Richardson if the cost in draft picks is lower than expected. Even then, they would likely keep both backs on the roster, as salary cap space is not an issue.
