Steven Jackson, starting running back for the St. Louis Rams, might find himself on a new team after the 2012 NFL draft has passed. 

According to Evan Silva of NBC Sports, the Rams are looking to move Jackson during the draft.

#Rams will shop Steven Jackson during draft, but $7M base in '12 & '13. So much wear on tires. S-Jax nets 4th-round pick, best case.

If it does happen, the Rams would obviously be in need of a new starting running back, meaning they would have to trade up from No. 6 to select Trent Richardson. 

Jackson has played with the Rams his entire career, rushing for over 1,000 yards for seven consecutive seasons.
