Pittsford, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Buffalo Bills signed running back Fred Jackson to a contract extension Wednesday that will keep the veteran with the team through next season.
Jackson's deal had been set to expire at the end of the upcoming season. The one-year extension he signed Wednesday is worth $2.6 million, according to NFL.com.
Jackson, 33, appeared in 16 games last season for the first time since 2010, rushing for 890 yards and a career-best nine touchdowns while sharing carries with C.J. Spiller.
The previous two seasons were shortened by knee and leg injuries, with Jackson playing in only 20 games and rushing for 1,371 yards and nine scores.
He has gained 5,121 yards on 1,138 carries with 28 rushing touchdowns and six receiving TDs since the Bills signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Division III Coe College in 2006.
