The Atlanta Falcons entered the offseason with a gaping hole in their backfield.
It's been filled with Thursday's announcement that Steven Jackson reached a three-year agreement with the team. The pact is worth $12 million.
The all-time leading rusher in Rams history (10,135 yards), Jackson voided the final year of his contract with St. Louis and joins not-quite-retired tight end Tony Gonzalez on a team clearly in Super Bowl-or-bust mode.
"I think this is a very big signing for us," Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff told the Associated Press. "It continues to bolster our offensive firepower."
