Fred staying in town

Posted by Chris Brown on February 10, 2012 – 11:11 am

Bills RB Fred Jackson, who is patiently waiting on a new contract with Buffalo, is going to be in town for just about the rest of the NFL offseason.

There will be a few short trips made here and there with his wife, but other than that Jackson is going to be training in Buffalo this winter and spring

“Yeah I’m going to be here the whole time,” Jackson told Buffalobills.com.

Last offseason with the lockout keeping players away from One Bills Drive the players organized some workouts of their own. Knowing OTAs won’t get going until mid-May at the earliest, Jackson said there is a chance that some of the offensive players could get together again this offseason prior to formal team workouts.

“I talked to Fitz about that after we did it last year and we liked it,” said Jackson. “We may do something. There’s always a possibility. I know guys like to do it and felt we got something out of the work we put in. There’s nothing set in stone, but it’s always a possibility.”

The players feel the time they spent working on their own away from the team facility last offseason served them well at the start of the 2011 season when they sprinted out to a 3-0 start.
