Bills Sign Fred Jackson to Contract Extension

PITTSFORD (WKBW) The Bills were dealing with a weather delay during training camp practice on Wednesday, so they decided to make the most out of it, announcing that the team has signed veteran running back Fred Jackson to a contract extension.

The team did not release the terms of the deal, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that it is a one year extension worth $2.6 million dollars, with an additional one million in incentives.

Jackson has been a stalwart in the Bills backfield over the last six seasons, racking up over five thousand yards, good for third most in Bills history.
The back is a product of Coe College, a division three school, and has been a captain on the Bills offense the last few years.

The Bills wrapped up a weather-delayed practice at St. John Fisher College on Wednesday afternoon, and are back on the field for training camp on Thursday morning.
