|Bills, Fred Jackson agree to extension -- Mon May 7 5:45 pm --|
Two-year deal worth $8.7 M
|The Buffalo Bills kept the positive momentum going on Monday, announcing that the team had come to an agreement with running back Fred Jackson on a new contract extension.
Jackson will make a total base salary of $8.7 million split up over two seasons -- 2013 and 2014. However, there are numerous attainable performance-based incentives to the deal that could bring up the total of the extension to $11 million. Those incentives are for the 2013 and 2014 seasons of the contract. (WGR 550)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson turned 31 in February, but was a beast in fantasy leagues last season before the injury and has just 817 NFL carries to his credit. C.J. Spiller figures to get a bit more work after his strong second-half finish, but Jackson should still be considered the featured back, making him a low-end RB1 candidate in fantasy.
