Bills’ Jackson in C.R., negotiating contract

Ran into Buffalo Bills running back and former Coe College all-American Fred Jackson at tonight’s Coe-Cornell basketball double-header. Jackson was in town with his wife, Danielle, a Coe grad, and two young children to visit friends.

It’s awesome to see he’s the same old Freddy, and that being an NFL player (and one that got a chance to play quite a bit this season) has absolutely not gone to his head.

“It was exciting that I got to play a lot more (this season) than I did last year,” Jackson said. “I’m excited about that and seeing if we can keep moving forward and maybe my opportunities on the field can continue to expand.”

Jackson is a restricted free agent, of sorts, whose rights are owned right now by Buffalo. He said he and his agent have been in contact with Bills management about a possible multi-year contract.

I am not 100-percent certain on Freddy’s agent, but I think I was told he was from the Dallas area. That’s where Jackson is from.
