RB Jackson Not Worried About Contract Status

The Buffalo News reports that RB Fred Jackson is not worried about this current contract status, and just wants to get in and be the best back he can be in 2012.

Bills running back Fred Jackson reported for work today as the team started its voluntary offseason workout program. Jackson, who’s entering the final year of his contract, said “it’s just not the time” to be worried about a new contract. “This week [the front office has] the draft coming up. That’s what they’re focusing on. I’ll just continue to be patient and see what happens,” he said.

“It’s like I’ve said all along, ‘I think something will get done.’ [General Manager] Buddy [Nix] said that they want to get something done, so I’ll just continue to put faith in that.” Jackson is 100 percent recovered from the broken bone in his lower right leg that ended his season after 10 games in 2011. “I got medically released about three months ago,” he said. “I’ve been training and nothing’s changed.” Jackson said he never considered skipping the workouts, even though they are voluntary. “I’m just going to continue to show up, be with my teammates and play football. That’s what I do. This is just part of that process, showing up and trying to get ready for the 2012 season,” he said.
