Bills' RB Jackson agrees to extension, will compete for No. 1 role
Associated Press


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Fred Jackson never gave up on his pursuit to make it in the NFL, and now the Buffalo Bills running back has the lengthy contract to prove it.

Fred Jackson, RB
Buffalo Bills

2008 Statistics:
Carries: 82
Yards: 571
Touchdowns: 3
Jackson signed a four-year contract extension on Wednesday as both a reward for his perseverance and his ability to provide the Bills' run game a valuable one-two punch behind starter Marshawn Lynch. It's a particularly significant deal for someone who played at Division III Coe College, spent a few years playing in the U.S. Indoor Football League before finally breaking into the NFL on Buffalo's practice squad in 2006.

"I traveled a road that not a lot of people take or will take," Jackson said. "I'm happy that I took the road, because I'm appreciative for being here and being able to have had the success that I have had." http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true

Doesn't have elite talent but he plays hard every down. I think he is a great change of pace back.

I love this guy, especially in fantasy. He'll be starting during Lynch's suspension, and even when Lynch is back, he'll still probably get a good amount of touches every game. He's especially valuable in PPR. Glad to see they signed him. ;-D

What is his worth to a Lynch owner in a dynasty league? :-)

There were a few games last year where he outperformed Lynch in PPR and it made me check to see if Lynch was even in the game.

Pretty much a necessary handcuff considering Lynch's history with the law, Jackson's level of talent, and the fact that Jackson would be the full-time starter for sure if Lynch went down (maybe with some taken by Rhodes, but not much else).
