Bills signed RB Fred Jackson to a two-year extension through 2014.
Jackson was previously signed through only 2012. The extension likely gives him an up-front bump while allowing Buffalo to retain his rights into Jackson's age-33 campaign. A longtime practice squad player, Jackson's career didn't take off until 2008, and he's only got 817 carries worth of wear on his tires. C.J. Spiller is the future of Buffalo's tailback position, but Jackson will remain heavily involved until he starts showing signs of breakdown. He certainly didn't last year, averaging career bests in yards per carry (5.49) and yards per reception (11.3) before a fractured right fibula ended his season after ten games. Jackson is now healthy.
