QUOTE OF THE DAY
RB Fred Jackson
On the importance of staying in Buffalo:
“We have a tremendous fan base and I couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else. For me to still be here it was huge for me. Our fans have been with us through thick and thin. That’s what I want to do. I want to be here for them because they’ve always supported me. I want to go out and play for them and hopefully continue to play well.”
