ORCHARD PARK, NY — Fred Jackson is reportedly calling it a career.
The former Bills running back is no longer considering NFL opportunities and is working on signing a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Bills, according to Nick Veronica The Buffalo News.
"Have it in the works now," Jackson said while attending the NFL's Broadcast Boot Camp this week at Bowling Green State University, via Veronica. "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.
"We're in the works of talking and trying to work something out that will benefit both myself and Buffalo in making it happen."
A Bills source confirmed to 2 On Your Side's Adam Benigni that a plan is in the works for Jackson to retire as a member of the team.
Jackson was released by the Bills prior to the start of the 2015 season after eight seasons with the team. Jackson, who went undrafted out of Division III's Coe College, is third on the Bills' all-time rushing list behind Thurman Thomas and OJ Simpson.
Jackson, 37, last played in 2015 with the Seattle Seahawks.
Even if Jackson gets phone calls from interested teams this summer, he says he's "officially done."
"At this point I don't think there will be any of those phone calls, but yes, I would say that I'm officially done now," Jackson said.
