Should the Bills trade Jackson?

Standard

The Buffalo Bills are going nowhere anytime soon and one question was proposed on WGR 550 this afternoon by beat reporter Paul Hamilton, which you can listen to right here.

That question being should the Bills trade running back Fred Jackson if they got a high draft pick offered?

Jackson is 29 years old and will be 30 in February and the shelf life for running backs is usually 30 years old.

Also, its not like Jackson did nothing with his career after college as upon graduating in 2004 he played the next two years in the Indoor Football League and then played for the Rhine Fire of the now defunct NFL Europe in 2006, before catching on with the Bills that same year.

That means Jackson has already played a lot of football and no doubt will start to see his skills to decline real soon.

The Bills have younger solid running backs in CJ Spiller and Marshawn Lynch.  So, if the Bills can get a high draft pick they should take it.

In the end, it is a business and with the Bills attempting to get out of the basement of the AFC East any draft picks they can get they should take.

Good news for Bills fans

Standard

It was looking like for a while that the Buffalo Bills may be without their top two running backs for the regular season opener.

However, the Bills got a dose of good news today.

According to WGR 550, Bills running back Marshawn Lynch returned to practice today and may even play in the preseason finale against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

Lynch playing on Thursday would be huge as it would give fellow Bills running back CJ Spiller a much deserved rest and would allow him to get caught up on things with his offensive teammates.

However, the big question is now who will be the starter come Thursday?

Spiller has shown why the Bills took him ninth overall as he is a rare difference maker and has shown the ability of greatness already as he is giving defenses nightmares already.

In the end, Spiller and Lynch will give the Bills a tough to handle one two punch come the regular season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
