The St. Louis Rams are expected to let running back Stephen Jackson leave after the season.

The team has decided to let Jackson void the final year of his contract. As a result, he will become a free agent after this 2012 season.

He has failed to reach certain incentives in his contract, which called for 1,200 rushing yards and 400 receiving yards from the 2008 to 2011 seasons. The team reportedly renegotiated his contract in September to void the final year of his contract.

He is making $7 million this season, which he is not expected to get on the open market. He signed this contract in August 2008 when he was one of the best running backs in the game.

He has been battling a groin injury for the fourth time in the past six seasons. He will also be 30 years old next summer, which is when running backs start to head on the downward spiral of their careers.
