Jackson is 10 yards short of the eighth consecutive 1,000-yard season of his great career. Still, he seemed to fall down the pecking order with the St. Louis Rams earlier in the season.
However, in typical fashion, Jackson has rebounded well. He remains a dynamic, bruising runner with excellent receiving and blocking skills.
Jackson would be a dream acquisition for many teams—that is, if he stays on the market. NFL.com's Marc Sessler, recently reported that the 29-year-old might consider retirement.
If he opts to return for a 10th season, Jackson will be the premier back on the market.
A close second to Jackson will be Reggie Bush. The Miami Dolphins, so far, seem willing to allow Bush to test the market.
That's a surprise considering that Bush is close to recording his second-straight 1,000-yard season in South Beach, and he is still a dynamic open-field runner, with the speed and moves to make many miss.
He has averaged more than four yards a carry in each of the last four seasons. Bush also remains a big-play weapon as a receiver.
The 27-year-old shouldn't be short of suitors once free agency begins.
