A fan favorite for the Buffalo Bills is prepared to officially call it a career.
According to a league source, former Bills running back Fred Jackson is coming to town Wednesday to sign a one-day contract and officially retire as a member of the team. Jackson, 37, spent nine seasons with the Bills, finishing third on the team's all-time rushing list. He last played in 2015 with the Seattle Seahawks.
Jackson told The Buffalo News' Nick Veronica last week about his desire to officially retire with the Bills.
"That's the plan, to come back and show Buffalo that my career in Buffalo was the most important thing to me in my football career and I would love to retire as a Buffalo Bill," he said.
