Bills Want To Give Fred Jackson Contract Extension

Friday February 10th, 2012

The Buffalo Bills want to give running back Fred Jackson a contract extension, according to the team’s official website.

“Fred and I have talked,” said Bills GM Buddy Nix. “We want to extend Fred. I’d like for Fred to finish his career as a Bill. He’s meant a lot to us. I’ve got great respect for him. We do want Fred back and we do intend to try to work out a deal with him. I’ve told him that. What we said is what we’re going to do.”

Jackson currently has one year remaining on a multi-year deal he signed with Buffalo in the 2009 offseason. He was just recently cleared to resume football related activities after a fractured fibular forced him to miss the final six games of what was going to be a break-out-year for the former undrafted free-agent.
