According to a report from The Buffalo News, former Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson is working on a one-day deal in order to retire as a member of the Bills.

“That’s the plan, to come back and show Buffalo that my career in Buffalo was the most important thing to me in my football career and I would love to retire as a Buffalo Bill,” said Jackson.

Jackson, who spent eight years in Buffalo after traversing through NCAA Division III football, various arena leagues, and NFL Europe, has always been a fan favorite. Jackson’s blue-collar mentality and hard-nosed work ethic epitomized key components of the city of Buffalo.

Jackson was cut by the Bills in 2015 during training camp but was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks, winning one playoff game in the process. He has been looking for another shot at the NFL ever since.

Buffalo never stopped loving Jackson, even in his years away from the team and the NFL as a whole. The one-day deal to retire in Buffalo will mean a whole lot to the city of Buffalo, the Bills organization,the Jackson family and Bills fans everywhere
