The Packers saw Steven Jackson rush for 57 yards and a touchdown against them on 12 impressive carries in Week 7. Now they have until Thursday before Week 9 to decide whether they want to acquire the Rams' star for their own backfield for the rest of the season.

ESPN reported the Packers are among multiple teams who might be interested in trading for Jackson before the NFL deadline, now extended to Nov. 1 at 4 p.m. ET. He would be their replacement for another aging veteran, Cedric Benson, who is on the shelf with a foot injury.

Jackson is the same age as Benson, 29, but offers a little more power. Since Benson got hurt, the Packers have been relying on second-year player Alex Green to carry the load, but Green has averaged just 2.9 yards on his 74 carries over the past four games.

This is expected to be Jackson's last year in St. Louis, given he can become an unrestricted free agent in 2013. Moving Jackson now would allow the Rams to get a draft pick in return. The Packers, however, need to decide if it's worth paying approximately $3 million of the $7 million that's owed to Jackson in 2012.

The team has won three straight with Green serving as a 20-plus touch runner and receiver out of the backfield. The 2011 third-round pick from Hawaii also makes only makes $465,000 for all of the season.

Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!

We could get into this mix and the packers wouldn't have to spend as much money.

So you wanna trade a solid safety in order to acquire a solid safety?

Re: Packers reportedly interested in acquiring Steven Jackson

Steven Jackson is a guy I wish could win a SB before he calls it quits. He has been such a good player on so bad teams for a very long time and been producing and producing even when people have loaded the box against them.
