Veteran RB Fred Jackson Says He Hasn’t Retired, Still Hoping For Another Opportunity

Free agent RB Fred Jackson tells Sal Capaccio that┬áhe hasn’t signed retirement papers and would still like to play in the NFL.

However, Jackson did admit that the┬áreality is he’s 36 years old, which will factor into the level of interest from NFL teams. Even so, Jackson says he’s still hoping to get a call from someone.

Jackson added no matter what happens he will always be a Buffalo Bill and would consider it an honor to be included in their Wall of Fame someday if selected, per Capaccio.

Jackson, 36, is a former undrafted free agent out of Coe back in 2006. He spent eight years in Buffalo before signing on with the Seahawks for the 2015 season.

Unfortunately, Jackson wound up sitting out the 2016 season.

In 2015, Jackson appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and rushed for 100 yards on 26 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 32 receptions for 257 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
