 ATLANTA (AP) - Steven Jackson has wanted to hold up the Lombardi Trophy since he was 10 years old.
Now that he's signed with the Atlanta Falcons, the three-time Pro Bowl running back believes he's one step closer to his goal.
Like Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, Jackson says he considered retiring after the season, but decided that he's still too productive to pass up a chance to win the Super Bowl.
Among active players, Jackson leads the NFL with 10,135 yards rushing, but he hasn't been to the playoffs since his rookie year of 2004 with the St. Louis Rams.
Joining an Atlanta team that fell 10 yards shy of winning the NFC championship, Jackson says he and the Falcons ``looked like a marriage that was meant to happen.''
