The Bills haven't expressed interest in a reunion with free agent Fred Jackson.
Wiling away the time on Twitter as he waits for training camp to begin, Jackson's ex-teammate Aaron Williams is campaigning for F-Jax's return with Karlos Williams and Jonathan Williams' status both up in the air. By nearly any measure, Jackson is one of the best Bills of the 21st century, but he's 35 and has averaged 3.7 yards per carry over the past two seasons. A reunion is highly unlikely. Jul 21 - 4:30 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent RB Fred Jackson wants to continue his career.

Jackson did not make much of an impact in 16 games with the Seahawks last season, and it does not look like Seattle is interested in re-signing the 35-year-old. Jackson might not have much left in the tank, but he is a versatile player who offers a veteran presence. He could find a home closer to training camp.
Feb 22 - 12:10 PM

Fred Jackson rushed two times for nine yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

It was a standard day for Jackson, who handled pass-game work behind Marshawn Lynch. That's been Jackson's role all season, as he was never a contender for early-down work, even after injuries to Lynch and Thomas Rawls. F-Jax totaled 357 yards and two scores on 58 touches in the regular season. He'll turn 35 next month and is scheduled for free agency. Odds are probably high Jackson hangs up the cleats and later signs a one-day deal with the Bills.
Jan 17 - 5:17 PM

Fred Jackson caught 5-of-8 targets for 43 yards in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Rams.

He added two carries for 11 yards. Jackson was No. 3 on the depth chart on early downs, but was playing important snaps late, acting as a safety valve for Russell Wilson in comeback mode. With neither Christine Michael nor Bryce Brown impressing this afternoon, it's possible F-Jax could see more carries in Week 17 if Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) isn't ready.

Fred Jackson caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards Week 15 against the Browns.

Jackson did not have a carry and was not part of the early-down scramble at the top of the depth chart. A third-down back who rarely sees meaningful volume, Jackson has no value in any format.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 07:27:00 PM

Fred Jackson rushed seven times for 15 yards and caught 1-of-4 targets for eight yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Even with Thomas Rawls fracturing his ankle in the first quarter of Sunday's win, Jackson's role didn't change much. He served as Seattle's passing-down back and change-of-pace option while DuJuan Harris (18 carries) took over as the primary early-down runner. Jackson is still worth a look this week as a PPR pickup with Rawls done for the year and Marshawn Lynch lacking any timetable to return from his abdominal injuries.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 04:41:00 PM

Fred Jackson rushed once for four yards and caught both of his targets for seven yards in the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the Steelers.

He’s seen just nine touches during Marshawn Lynch’s two-game absence. With Thomas Rawls playing well, there’s no reason for the Seahawks to up Jackson’s workload. He’s not a fantasy option.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 09:10:00 PM

Fred Jackson caught his only target for nine yards in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.

Jackson’s season-high in touches is five. With Marshawn Lynch and Thomas Rawls both healthy, his role in the Seahawks’ offense is nonexistent. The veteran kissed fantasy relevance goodbye as soon as he left Buffalo.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 09:09:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch weren't even drag racing when Jackson wrecked his car Tuesday afternoon.

TMZ Sports' story has quickly fallen apart. According to multiple eye witnesses, Jackson pulled out of the Seahawks' team facility a little too fast following practice and misjudged a sharp turn and crashed into a stop sign. Lynch simply was one of the teammates at the scene, along with several others. Jackson shouldn't face any legal or league discipline and is reportedly uninjured.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 09:33:00 PM

TMZ Sports reports Fred Jackson was injured Tuesday afternoon in a drag-racing incident with teammate Marshawn Lynch after practice.

TMZ's headline on Twitter reads: "Marshawn Lynch Drag Races Teammate, Fred Jackson Injured!" Inside the story, it doesn't mention anything about Jackson being hurt, so take this with a large grain of salt. It's still pretty evident that the teammates were up to no good leaving practice Tuesday, as there's a picture of Jackson's wrecked black Corvette smashed into a stop sign. Lynch allegedly left the scene after Jackson was scooped up by Seahawks staffers before police arrived.

Fred Jackson caught both of his targets for seven yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 loss to the Panthers.

Jackson’s season-high in touches is five. That’s not enough to warrant fantasy consideration. There’s no need to have him in your lineup or even on your roster at this point.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 08:44:00 PM

Fred Jackson rushed twice for five yards and caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 loss to the Bengals.

The results weren’t there for Jackson, though he deserves a ton of credit for even suiting up a week after suffering a nasty high-ankle sprain. Just as he was Sunday, Jackson will be limited to third-down looks going forward.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 05:50:00 PM

Fred Jackson (ankle) is active for Week 5 against the Bengals.

Jackson has made a miraculous recovery from the high-ankle sprain that sidelined him for most of Monday's win over the Lions. He won't get more than a handful of touches behind starter Thomas Rawls on Sunday. It's a bad matchup for both players as Cincinnati has allowed the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 12:03:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Fred Jackson (questionable, ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals.

This might be a record recovery for a high-ankle sprain. This injury can often sideline players for up to six weeks. Jackson has logged just 15 touches this season and shouldn't be much of a factor behind bellcow Thomas Rawls on Sunday. Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) is expected to return next week.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 08:44:00 AM

Fred Jackson (questionable, ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision.

Coach Pete Carroll said he expects Jackson to be active this week. Jackson should play through his high-ankle sprain, but is unlikely to be effective. Thomas Rawls will continue to get the majority of carries in place of Marshawn Lynch.
