Bills GM Buddy Nix brought things up to date on where things stand with Fred Jackson and a contract extension for the dynamic running back.
Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan, Nix explained the plan concerning Jackson, who has a year remaining on his current contract.
“Fred and I have visited a couple of times,” said Nix. ”Fred has been vocal some about wanting a new deal and that kind of thing so finally I called him in and we talked twice. I told him we’re going to offer you an extension. We had priorities with guys that were unrestricted that we didn’t want to lose. I told him when we get through it we’ll at least do it before training camp. That way there’s no chance of him getting hurt. He’ll be healthy and he’ll have an extension before he goes to camp. We’ll be as straight as we can with him.”
