Steven Jackson Contract Dispute: Rams Running Back Wants New Deal

The St. Louis Rams, looking to build a new winning era after a 2-14 season and a management overhaul, may have a stumbling block their way. According to Mike Lombardi, the star RB Steven Jackson wants a new deal:

RotoWorld.com reports Jackson's base salary to be at $7 million for both of the next two seasons. If the team is not willing to restructure the deal, they may look to take a top running back prospect in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. The team is reportedly looking into wide receivers at the moment, but a prolonged contract dispute may change that.
