The Atlanta Falcons agreed to a three-year, $12-million deal with Steven Jackson, considered by most to be the best free-agent running back available.

β€œI think this is a very big signing for us,” Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff told the Associated Press on Thursday evening. β€œIt continues to bolster our offensive firepower. It gives us not only strength, power in running ability but also the versatility to catch out of the backfield, which is a very important part of this offense.”

Today was the 1st time Jackson () was spotted in a Falcons helmet and jersey. (via ).

    Having him in their backfield is a scary thought when u think about what they already have in their passing game with White,Jones,an Gonzalez…defenses gonna have a tough time thinking about which threat they wanna try and contain cause even if u stop one the other can kill ya.
