An agent "repping one of the better backs in the draft" tells Packer Report that he's under the impression Green Bay is "closing in" on a deal with free agent Steven Jackson.

The agent apparently doesn't rep S-Jax. Throughout Wednesday, several signs pointed to Jackson picking the Packers over the Falcons. The latter team does not appear to be seriously bidding, perhaps taken out of the mix by Tony Gonzalez's return. Gonzo will cost at least $7 million, taking a bite out of Atlanta's cap.
