So far on the year, Jackson has rushed for 990 yards and four touchdowns on 246 carries. 10 more yards Sunday against the Seahawks would give Jackson his eighth-consecutive 1,000 yard-season.
Jackson can opt out of his contract after this season and become a free agent. The 29-year old has made it known that he would like to retire with the Rams. Jackson mentioned that he will take time this offseason to reflect on the things he’s accomplished in his career, along with this season.
