Fred Jackson wants to stay with Bills

Buffalo News - [Full Article]

Bills RB Fred Jackson was asked if he would rather go elsewhere if his role is lessened.

"This is where I started my career, and this is where I want to end my career," Jackson replied. "Even if I did leave here, who's to say where I go I won't be some third- or fourth-string back there?

"My thing is to go out and compete and make the most of the opportunities I do get. Whether that's here or somewhere else, I'm going to continue to show up and make plays and try and help my team win."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson is signed through 2014, but will turn 32 in February, so he's definitely in the twilight of his career given the typical lifespan of NFL running backs. One thing working in his favor is that he didn't become a full time player until age 28 and has just 932 carries in his career. However, he has only played 20 games in the last two seasons and now has the reputation of being injury-prone.
