The Genesis: Steven Jackson Of The Atlanta Falcons



Having amassed more than 10,000 rushing yards over the course of his career, Steven Jackson has joined an elite club of fellow running backs. However, having just turned 30–an age where running backs particularly face a precipitous decline–Jackson finds himself at a crossroads: new team (Atlanta Falcons after nine years with the St. Louis Rams) and new expectations (contributor on a playoff contender instead of starring role on a struggling team). Here, Life+Times meets up with Jackson at his homes in his native Las Vegas and Atlanta, gaining insight into this new phase of his career.
