Should the Buffalo Bills Part Ways With Fred Jackson?
A couple of years ago, Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills emerged as one of the top running backs in the league as he was just as dangerous on the ground as he was in the passing game. Unfortunately, Jackson has experienced his fair-share of injuries over the last couple of seasons and now–it may not be a bad idea for the team to just part ways with the running back.
Jackson appeared in just 10 games last season for the Bills as he rushed for just 437 yards to go along with three touchdowns. Jackson had broke the 900-yard rushing mark in each of the three previous seasons for Buffalo and at 32-years-old–it’s difficult not to wonder if he may be on the downfall of his career.
This is usually the age where running backs tend to see their production go down as their knees tend to get worn down from all of the carries they handle and with a reliable running back in C.J. Spiller, it’s not like the Bills would be suffering much in the ground game. In fact, the argument can be made that the younger Spiller is more of a threat than Jackson when healthy–so it may make more sense to just provide him with more carries.
Either way, the Bills have to be concerned at least a little bit over Jackson’s health and consider whether or not it would be worth keeping him around in 2013. The last thing they want to see happen is Jackson come back for another season–only to deal with injuries once again and miss more time away from the field.
