Jackson, who was released by the Falcons in February, recently said he is only willing to sign with a contender, ESPN.com reports.

Jackson likely has his eyes on a backup role with a top-notch team, but he may have a hard time finding the right fit. If nothing comes up, it's possible he'll retire, as his 32nd birthday is in July. Jackson averaged just 3.7 yards on 190 carries for the Falcons last season, and while he's unlikely to get that many touches in 2015, he may be able to find a decent team with a better offensive line.

Jackson was released by the Falcons on Thursday.

There was never any chance Jackson would be retained under the same contract, which called for a base salary of $3.75 million in 2015. It's possible the two sides will look to work out a less costly agreement, but it probably makes more sense for Jackson to move on. While far from the dominant force we saw in St. Louis, Jackson still offers a respectable combination of power running, pass blocking, and receiving skills. He'd profile well as a backup for a contending team, and he likely still has designs on finally playing for a decent squad. Jackson thought he would get his Super Bowl shot in Atlanta, only to watch the team go 10-22 over the last two seasons. As for the Falcons, in-house options at running back are led by 2014 fourth-round selection Devonta Freeman, with both Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith slated to become unrestricted free agents.
