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.
