The trade deadline has been extended due to the Frankenstorm that is even now lashing the east coast. (I hope all of you in that part of the world are dry and will soon have your lives back to normal.) A couple of rumors have surfaced about contending teams who might be interested in acquiring a RB to help with their playoff runs. The Packers and Cardinals seem to be the most mentioned.
Fred Jackson has been a very good player for the Bills and Buffalo finally gave him a decent contract. What Buffalo has never given Jackson is a shot at the playoffs. What's more, the Bills - seemingly headed for a coaching change and possibly a front office overhaul as well - are unlikely to get to the playoffs in the next few years. Indeed, by the time the Bills are through the next rebuilding mode Jackson will be at the tail end of his career.
With Spiller finally living up to his first round status the Bills have someone to replace Jackson. The Bills also have oh so many holes to fill and extra draft choices would come in handy if the front office was managed by a guy who was a better judge of talent. The playoff bound team getting Jackson would be getting a very good running back. And, finally, Jackson would know what it feels like to be a winner.
