Fred Jackson released by Bills

Postby jnormy » Mon Aug 31, 2015 7:52 am

Kind of surprising, IMO. So besides the fact that this likely indicates they're comfortable with Shady's health status, who gets the biggest fantasy boost in the Buffalo RB pecking order? Anyone worth a longer look now?

Figured Bryce Brown would be the guy to go. Karlos Williams the clear handcuff now?

Honestly didn't think he would go over Brown.

I'm sure FJax goes somewhere with a muddy RB situation and makes it even muddier.

For the Bills RBs, I don't think this changes much.

Very surprised. Dude has been the heart and the soul of the Bills for so long.

If the curse of the Bills is still in effect, he'll join a team that will knock the Bills out of playoff contention on the back of a 2-TD Freddy performance.

New England makes a ton of sense.

Since Jerryworld was built on top of his childhood home, the Cowboys make the most sense.

Belichick absolutely loves Fred Jackson. That would be my bet.

Fred's 34 yrs old. My money is on Boobie Dixon. Too bad, I own Bryce Brown. Was hoping he'd get a chance somewhere else. I'm not excited about Shady's chances for success this year. Fred will need to take a pay cut if he wants to play for BB.

Well in any event it was nice of Rex to cut him in first cuts so he has a better chance of being picked up by someone, rather than a last minute cut next week

I like him in ATL. He'd be a really nice fit there for a team who has a bunch of "meh" talent in the backfield IMO. He could really put up some numbers in ATL.

I agree that NE is probably his most likely landing spot. Just feels right.

I could see the Browns taking a shot at him (Mike Pettine being the former defensive coordinator of the Bills).
