After a long and uncommon road to the National Football League, Fred Jackson officially called it a career on Wednesday in Orchard Park. Jackson, having spent nine years in Buffalo as a member of the Bills organization, he came back to sign a one-day contract to end his NFL career where it all began.

Jackson, 37, was a fan favorite after working his way up from the bottom of the roster into an indispensable member of the roster for many years throughout the playoff drought. Jackson ends his career as the third-leading rusher in Bills history, and now considers Buffalo his home away from home.

After signing his one-day contract with the Bills, Jackson sat down with 7ABC and relived his favorite days in Buffalo. You can watch the full interview above!
