Bills GM Doug Whaley taking heat from Fred Jackson, others

The Buffalo Bills released arguably their most popular player, Fred Jackson, this week. Jackson is not happy with GM Doug Whaley about it, and neither, apparently, are a few people within the Bills organization. When a NFL team cuts one of its most popular players, feathers will have been ruffled along the way. That was the case for Fred Jackson and his former employers, the Buffalo Bills, on Monday and Tuesday of this week, with The Buffalo News detailing the extent of that feather-ruffling between two reports last night. First, Jackson spoke with Bucky Gleason, telling him that he was...

Ravens show interest in veteran RB Fred Jackson

It is reported that the Ravens are making a real run at the 34 year old, although the Seahawks remain the favorites to sign him: Ex-Bills RB Fred Jackson expected to sign with Seahawks, but #Ravens showed interest, per @viccarucci— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) September 1,...

NFL cuts: Fred Jackson visiting Seahawks after Bills cut him

The Seattle Seahawks might be adding some running back depth. The team is bringing in running back Fred Jackson for a visit. We break down what it means. The most surprising move thus far of the first roster cutdown saw the Buffalo Bills release veteran running back Fred Jackson. He was due $2.3 million in 2015, with a cap hit of $2,731,250, so given that he is 34, it is not entirely shocking the Bills released him. I imagine one reason they did it now instead of this coming weekend is to give him a little more time to land somewhere before final roster cuts. And it appears he might have...

Fred Jackson released by the Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills, according to multiple media reports, have released RB Fred Jackson (reaction from Buffalo Rumblings here).  He won't be out of work for long.  His agent has probably already heard from a few teams- the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns- seem like two of the most obvious that could be interested. But as you know, this is a Titans blog, so my question to you is should the Titans be one of those teams that gives him a call?  My first instinct is to say no.  Jackson is 34 years old, and while he is probably an upgrade over anyone they currently have on the roster,...
