Steven Jackson joins the Atlanta Falcons

Steven Jackson will get a fresh start with the Atlanta Falcons after agreeing to terms with the team, Thursday.

The Falcons organization tweeted the news this afternoon…

The Falcons have agreed to terms with RB Steven Jackson on a three-year deal. #RiseUp http://t.co/CGXriovvi8

Jackson will be entering his 10th year as a running back n the NFL and prior to this has spent his entire career with the St. Louis Rams.

He was rookie of the year in 2004, and has made three Pro Bowl appearances.

With Atlanta parting ways with Michael Turner, Jackson can step right in and make an immediate impact.  Clearly, the Falcons want to maintain that #RiseUp momentum they had last season that led them all the way to the NFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens won that matchup and went on to win Super Bowl XLVII.
