The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with running back Steven Jackson on Thursday.

The Falcons had a hole at the running back position after they released Michael Turner. Even so, the running game was largely ineffective in 2012.

The move to sign Jackson changes that. Although the running back will be 30 years old once the season starts, he’s a perfect fit for Atlanta’s offense with his ability to catch the ball.

Jackson voided the last year of his contract with the St. Louis Rams to become an unrestricted free agent. He wanted to play for a contender, and he got his wish.

With Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, Julio Jones, Roddy White, and now Jackson, the Falcons offense is set and could potentially be the best in the league.

Now it’s time to address the defense.
