Former St. Louis Rams and Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson is not ready to hang up his cleats just yet. He told Nick Waggoner from ESPN.com, that he would like one more opportunity to land on a contender. 

“That’s the thing,” Jackson told ESPN.com. “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.”

“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.”
