Are Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch reuniting on the West Coast?
Jackson, who was released Monday by the Buffalo Bills, might not be unemployed for long, as the Seattle Seahawks reportedly are interested in signing the 34-year-old running back.
Jackson and Lynch played parts of four seasons together in Buffalo before the Bills traded Beast Mode to the Seahawks in October 2010 for two draft picks. The backs apparently developed a good relationship in that time, so they should be on the same page in Seattle’s backfield.
Jackson left the Bills as the franchise’s No. 3 all-time leading rusher. His workload has lessened in recent seasons — 34 is old by running back standards, of course — but he still could be a nice depth piece for a team with Super Bowl aspirations.
