Bills Assure Jackson Of Extension

Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix has assured RB Fred Jackson personally that he’ll be taken care of with a new agreement before the start of the 2012 season. Jackson has one year remaining on his current deal. “Fred and I have talked,” Nix said. “We want to extend Fred. I’d like for Fred to finish his career as a Bill. He’s meant a lot to us. I’ve got great respect for him. We do want Fred back and we do intend to try to work out a deal with him. I’ve told him that. What we said is what we’re going to do.”
