NFL.com’s Around the League asked him when’s the latest he’d like to get a new contract finalized.
“We’ve always said we want to have something done by training camp,” he said. “So if we get to training camp and nothing is going on, then something will start to happen. But like I said, I’ve always put faith in Buddy and I think we’ll get started soon. We’ve got the draft behind us and we got free agency over with, so I think things will start to pick up soon.”
Jackson was also asked if he plans on holding out for a new deal, if something doesn’t get done in time for training camp.
“Not at all. It’s not something I want to do,” he said. “I’ll go in and I’ll play. I’m under contract for another year. I’ll go out and finish my contract and see what happens from there.”
The one thing that’s going against Jackson is that he’s 31 years-old and he’s a running back. He shouldn’t expect the Bills to pay them whatever he wants.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
