Bills give RB Fred Jackson 1-year extension

The Bills' practice today was delayed by rain earlier. It looks like they did some business while waiting. The team has extended running back Fred Jackson @Fred22Jackson through the 2015 season, as reported by Tim Graham of The Buffalo News. Jackson, 33, ran for nearly 900 yards and scored nine times last season. He is expected to play second fiddle to C.J. Spiller @CJSPILLER more often this season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Apparently, Jason La Canfora was right. With Spiller and Bryce Brown @BryceBrown_34 on the roster, I didn't think the Bills had a compelling reason other than sentimentality to keep Jackson past 2014. The team disagrees. I wonder if this has anything to do with Brown being listed as a fourth-string player on the Bills' initial depth chart. Perhaps the coaching staff is skeptical of whether he will ever be ready to handle more responsibility so they decided to keep Jackson as insurance. Jackson is an RB4 behind Spiller, but he proved last year that he can still get it done at a pretty respectable rate.
