Yesterday, the Packers suffered what was perhaps their biggest blow of the offseason when it was announced that free-agent RB Steven Jackson had signed a three-year deal with the Falcons worth $12 million. All offseason, the Packers have shown interest in this guy and it really is a punch in the stomach to watch him go elsewhere.
As much as this originally sounded shocking, the Packers were never actually close to getting him. Jackson and the Pack met a few times, but the negotiations never got close. So now we must wait a little longer for Green Bay to sign someone.
