Bills, RB Fred Jackson agree to one-year, $2.6M extension
The deal figures to keep the popular and productive running back in Buffalo the rest of his career.
The Bills and running back Fred Jackson have agreed to one-year extenion worth $2.6 million, with another $1 million in incentives, according to league sources.
It firgures to keep the productive, popular Jackson with the Bills the remainder of his career and isn't a bad haul for a 34-year-old running back in a pass-happy league.
Jackson remains an important part of a deep backfield and has fought through injuries to stay on the field in the past. He's a key leader for the club as well.
After the Bills extended Jackson and traded for Bryce Brown, and with C.J. Spiller a free agent after this season, some GMs believe the Bills might be open to moving Spiller at some point should they be able to get something in return that helps Buffalo in the short term. They are very thin at tight end, for example.
