Shortly after signing a four-year contract extension with the Bills on Wednesday, RB Fred Jackson met with the media. You can check out the full video of the news conference on the team’s official site.
Jackson spent most of the news conference answering questions that centered around the contract process, his road to the NFL and the opportunity to replace the suspended Marshawn Lynch in the starting lineup the first three weeks of the season. The regular stuff.
At the very end of the session, Jackson was asked about the addition of Terrell Owens to the Bills’ offense, and his answer is brief, but telling. Jackson sheds some light on what those inside the Bills locker room may feel about their new teammate.
“Nobody is happier than I am about T.O. being here,” Jackson said. “It’s going to take a lot of pressure off of the running game. Safeties aren’t going to be able to stand in the box like they were. To combine him with Lee (Evans) is just going to do some tremendous things for our offense. I know, and I talked to Marshawn, he’s just as excited as I am, we’re happy about and we’re looking forward to playing with him.”
