5 Veteran Running Backs Who Would Give the St. Louis Rams' Backfield a Boost
Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

After nine seasons in St. Louis, the Rams and All-Pro running back Steven Jackson decided it was time to part ways. Jeff Fisher and Co. wanted Jackson to take a reduced role to stay in the Lou, while SJ39 knew he still had what it took to shoulder the load as an every-down back. 

Apparently the Atlanta Falcons also felt like Jackson still had what it took to shoulder the load. They signed him to a three-year, $12 million deal with $4 million guaranteed. Which ultimately means Les Snead will be looking to replace the 29-year-old running back in free agency or through the draft. 

With nine picks total in April's draft, it's more likely they use one of those selections on adding talent to a backfield that surely needs it. Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead both flashed at times in 2012, but the jury is still out on whether they are every-down backs.

Let's take a look at five sure-fire players St. Louis should look to sign if they decide to go the veteran route.
