WINX, S.C. — You’re never getting anywhere, Sam.
You’re never going anywhere.
It’s an observation that’s been true for years.
Sam Jackson was getting nowhere with his career, too.
It’s not the first time Sam has had his career in the balance.
He had a career-best five-goal, six-assist game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5, but the Lions were down to five men in the final minutes.
He was suspended for four games.
And in his final game, he scored a career low three points in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.
In those five games, Jackson had scored 13 points or fewer.
His career is over.
“I’m not going to sit here and whine,” Jackson said.
“I’m just not going.”
But his future is looking brighter than ever.
Sam Jackson’s career is now in the hands of the Lions.

He’s had five different teams to play for in five years, but none of them have been able to replicate the success he had in his first two years with the team.
Last year, Jackson led the Lions to a 10-5 record and the playoffs.
This year, he’s been in the running for the NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award, a nod that comes with the distinction of being voted for by ESPN’s “College Football Writers Association of America” voters.
Jackson has also made headlines since his release from the Lions in late July.
He tweeted about the Browns firing coach Hue Jackson, which sparked a wave of negative publicity.
That included a series of posts that accused Jackson of not supporting his wife.
He was asked about the controversy during his media availability at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, and he was noncommittal.
“It’s a big deal, man,” Jackson told reporters.
“When you get your hands on a big contract, you’re going to have your own issues.
But it’s not that I don’t support Hue Jackson or what he’s doing.
Jackson said he hasn’t talked to any team about taking him back.
But if he is to make a decision soon, it will be about the team he’s playing for.
“I’ve got a family, so it’s tough, but if you want to play at a high level, you have to support your family,” Jackson added.
“You have to stay in your home town, stay in the community, and do whatever you can to make sure you have a good experience.”
Jackson’s future is also uncertain.
He signed a one-year deal with the Lions this past offseason after the team released him after the season.
But Jackson has been out of football since his arrest in March, and his lawyer says he has been unable to contact his wife, Amber.
Jackson said that he would not talk about the situation with the media.
He said the Lions have already been in touch with him about the suspension and that he will be talking to them soon.
“You’re all going to be part of my future.
I know that,” Jackson laughed.
“We’re all family.
It’s a tough situation.”
