The Chargers RB issue is real. In case you missed it Melvin Gordon is the latest RB to hold out in a growing list of players who want to get paid now versus thrown to the curb when it's time for their second contract.
It's a CBA thing.
Regardless, the Boltz need someone to tote the rock and not many had last seasons 7th round draft choice/waived/practiced squad RB out of Northwestern to be the answer. If that was you, the good news is, you just may have been very, very wrong.
Jackson is the real deal. He has fire in his heart and a skill set to deliver. Is he Melvin Gordon? No, he's not Saquon Barkley either. His name is Justin Jackson. He played college ball at Northwestern finishing with 5,283 yards, 39 touchdowns, and 121 receptions. He is a football player and you could do way worse than having this guy at your RB1 spot on game day.
Just check out the video I tweeted earlier.
