Last week, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told the media that the team was looking to end the season, “on a high note,” as word was reported that the Pats were working out vet Steven Jackson. As the 12-2 Patriots continue their season after losing Dion Lewis and LaGarrette Blount to injuries, ESPN reports that they have signed RB and 3-time Pro Bowler Steven Jackson.

The 32-year-old played his last season with the Atlanta Falcons back in 2014. Jackson has more than 11,00 total yards rushing and 68 touchdowns. Looks like Jackson is ready to get back on the field as he tweets this in response to his signing with the Patriots.
