Seahawks Give Physical to Former Bills RB Fred Jackson

index

The Seahawks could have a great new addition to the backfield, as the team today gave a physical to just released Bills running back Fred Jackson.

Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch are about to be reunited.

Jackson is flying to Seattle today and is expected to sign with the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

In Seattle, Jackson would back up Lynch. That’s a familiar role for Jackson, who also shared a backfield with Lynch in Buffalo. The two were teammates with the Bills from 2007 to 2010.

Jackson is 34 and on the down side of his career, having averaged a career-low 3.7 yards a carry last season. But the Seahawks apparently think he has something left, and he’s about to join one of the best running offenses in the NFL.
