We'll have the bills running back Fred Jackson on in about one minute Mike show in the bull dog here we've been on since about a quarter after two. 2 o'clock a few minutes after that's when the bills made that announcement. And now we have. Projects in the fifth. All time leading rusher in bills history and it'll soon be fourth or third even this year medium stays on the -- was that last year. Fred Mike and Chris year congratulations. Thanks -- for a moment let's talk about your watch we talked about it. When we met you at the auto showed do you have it still have that watch will you buy a new watch now rattling -- I gotta keep that now owns was an anniversary. Wife at that I will definitely be cute and now. Can't be replacing man with the well -- Leo we wouldn't go over well still works now it does work is also. -- I know you know you just spoke at the news conference. But it just. Talk about the that's a threshold played feeling like walking through breaking through to finally get your first contract in the NFL. But you want this for maybe a couple of years. And just the emotions of of the day in knowing you finally got in a pen to Paper and and a commitment that that the page you commensurate with your abilities. It's huge you know it's. Always something that you wanted to as the players you know get an extension means you're doing something well detainment. At same time a pay -- so. You know it's it's undescribable. You know I'm excited and glad that it's done so. -- and and it the focus of what -- now -- We don't have to worry about it. Blood you know it's an exciting day. I think. My my someone who's five knows how big of -- data is hope and now I guess that kind of puts in words so I'm excited about it. Glad it's not how much. If at all did have the desire for the contract and any age you may have had from that. Dried view and how do you guard against that subsiding now you've gotten contradicts and -- well I mean it didn't really you know plate too much in its my performances because. You know normal football player enough alike that every time -- on from left to play. You know are no matter what you know one what it is not played just -- and pay 200 dollars a week. You know this is a game -- of the plane. That drive came. More from people telling me that I couldn't do so. I think that's -- -- most of the drive from in congress not to worry about losing -- that causes. You have to be motivated there's going to be different things about you know me plan this year -- -- say he's 31 can still play. You know he's coming off a season in the leg injury can he play in those type of things right there being what. You know draws -- this year Fred Jackson -- us Freddy Burton Miami is that right. What happened was it rushing play when it what happened and hopefully were -- -- war it was a play that Fitz was scrambling and and he looked for some might go to -- through to me you know running in just a routine attack -- took any right to defeat them broken so. It was fracture I should say. In you know is this typical play. And in you know nothing really that you can do about it but you know just -- one -- them. Can you describe for us not in great deal necessarily but just over the last year or so how you felt about your chances of getting to today did you. Which you generally say you were optimistic that this day would come or was it may be trying times. I was pretty much optimistic news. It's like I said it before you know felt that you know I was gonna continue to go on play and just let that speak for itself you know always start. You know felt like I would be here in you know I didn't wanna go anywhere else made that known you know. Buddies at saint and they wanted me here. You know he was he told me it is you know two years ago that they won't be here and we wanna get something done. And you know -- that it was just about getting it done in you know I want them play -- ball and he handled more business that he had to take care. No -- in all season whether it be signing free agents or bringing in some guys. You know the draft and they want to -- time he know sat down and it didn't take long -- -- for a seated at Fred from. -- -- view of the team and talk about the team from from that perspective. It seems like the bills are. More committed this seems like an almost a different franchise. And and you've been here since 2007. And I'm wondering from inside does it feel different maybe with. Since -- signed during last season and then Stevie Johnson staying in in the free agent acquisitions it's just there seems to be a different kind of momentum. And our higher financial commitment then a lot of longtime observers of the team -- -- Those in Owen is this something we're aware of his players you know we we feel you know them. You know doing their part so to speak you know they feel like. They wanna put us in at the best piece is that they can help us you know be in this situation win football games and we definitely. And not them but the utmost respect for what they've done for so far. They've added some tremendous pieces force and the one thing we won those not -- point will form on the football -- because. We feel like they're doing everything they can help us and we want to make them. You know make it make them aware of the fact that we're you know very appreciative of what they've known for us. Fred Jackson with us -- I guess now you need to win right you've got you've got players who have achieved yourself Fitzpatrick Johnson just on offense. And and been rewarded financially but this team of course is not even brandy neat in a long time -- That that I think is is next without a doubt you know this this game is about winning more women than you know that's what we have to do you know. They've given us some some essential pieces to help us do that. You know if we don't win. We we can't make himself -- not what they're trying to do for us. We -- -- we wanna give you know these fans something excited to be about. Something to be excited about. And we noted that -- -- -- campaign you know we wanna give them talk to that hang their hat so you know. Or reason to be proud order Buffalo Bills emblem on it and it. Shirts and in things like that because they've been put us in we definitely want to reward them for don't -- if you. Audible at this point about how you would CJ Spiller will be used to mean he of course was -- he's been in on the team for a couple of seasons now but. Last year while you were hurt. Where is really the first time he had the opportunity. To show his skills and and Begin to validate the the the status he attained by being drafted where he once. And I'm curious how much if at all the -- at W at this point are you thought about like how they're useful -- and features -- You know it's not does that -- to me directly and I don't think anything's offensive you know other effect that they want to get -- both symbolic. You know as far you know posse is closed Nixon you know it's -- pick going to be -- we. We both want this team to win and I think that. You know arm and a -- comic plays this like a day when I was on the -- last year. I'm sure he's gonna do the same thing so. Oh we will be fine I don't know you know exactly how it's gonna work out. But that's not for you to figure out this code gave these. Good problem I have yet to -- the players in position. You know he constantly says that so. But I think you know if anything else control allow planes he you know control he plays golf Lieberman can place for his team and no game win. Would you be open to -- -- -- split splitting carries that I think is most running backs like to be used frequently they get they get that kernel security exception feel like -- morning groove. When you're getting you know 1820 carries that kind of thing. If it came to splitting. Time maybe almost 5050. How does that. Look I mean as they -- office -- -- -- you know any good one wants the ball as much as possible. You know and 5050 -- as much as possible. You know at the same time -- -- -- info blog and some I'm not gonna sit back and complain about it. And you know I don't think anybody who. Bullet you know that's that's just what we'll have to see what goes on in the season in the I look I've always said it. He naught I get better with mortars that get more touches like Vietnam self publishers CJ feels the same way you know he he wants as many as possible. And it's it's -- problem I have you know we'll see what happens it. I don't think it's going to be anything that distracts either one of us you know will there will be professionals about it. -- working you know do what we can have distinguished. You know what on that I would say in to take the Miami game out you were hurt in that game you'll only had more than twenty carries in the game two times. Last -- so you put up for me almost a thousand yards without. You didn't have Maurice Jones -- season -- -- where he was carrying the ball. So often. Enough so you go where you needed to without having to. Carry -- in 25 times a game you know. Is this about taken advantage of accuse you do it so. You know continues to spread. I'm curious as might be like old ground for you is your you know you just signed a two year extension with the bills in your established. NFL star at this point in your career but. Even in the first part of the show today. After the news conference -- I referenced you know your story. Arena football to NFL Europe. And just the road you've taken in I think most bills fans and our somewhat familiar with but I don't know that and I've never asked you specifically about the road you took. I just know I've heard it referenced. I'm just curious at any point I mean all. Whether it's in a -- league football NFL Europe but it was there a moment where you with your family your wife whatever we thought. Geez I don't know you know what one might wanna -- do what Schneider's -- become a regular person in the job but what are we what are we doing. Well I mean they're they're it was soft and it it's kind of -- -- -- this. After the season I had my six year net indoor league and I didn't get a call for a month I was just like what what more do I have to do. I -- output of 17100 yards and scored 55 system so. -- if this doesn't you know raise a flag anywhere then you know there's not much more than I can do. But you know I had a tremendous support system -- -- -- in you know my wife and colts leave you know family friends and they always told that they thought I could do it. You know that was all I need is to hear that from him and a kind of kept you know pushing mean. Once I got the chance I knew that. I couldn't let it know slip away because they told me I was good enough to do and I wanted to make them right. Page 31 as young dust and in fact its first a concerted a lot of Phnom. It's still feel like I'm seventeen so. Tell people that you know now I'm sure I'll hear about it Hampshire to be out there somewhere you know it's 31 what else can do. You know point out the -- the biggest skeptic skeptic now make him a believer. Hey Fred before that you goat can you say anything would you like to say any thing about about junior say -- I know it's -- totally different subject in their bodies and a good mood and most -- self about this news today. But on you know a lot of football players are being asked about their their concerns are -- worries they have any about their futures in the game. Are you worried about your long term. Well it's well I mean I think everybody is in -- anything you do everybody's going to be worried about your health so. You know but you know I think that you know people working on -- get the best you know technology for us when we're out there you know on the helmets I saw. Three new helmets that they came out with this year. And you know even mouth guards three new mouth guards they came out with the issues trying to help with that you know some open that. You know I'm hopeful that you know they'll give you brighten. You know football is going to be a physical sport as long as it's played we know that. We expected to be physically you know what we saw our name on that contract and we go out there and I feel we know it's going to be of about the musicality so. It's unfortunate that we do have you know things happen like. You know what happened sale you know it's never anything you policy. But I think at the same time we know what we're getting -- we step out step I don't know -- Oval -- I'm sorry Fred and anybody listening I should apologize for asking -- -- question right start with mentioning -- and an end up asking you about. Your future because we don't know. Very much of anything really about. Just what his mental health wise -- mean it's -- it's an inference they may be a lot of people are making I'm I'm guilty of doing that but yeah. We should -- -- -- him and then about. You know yourself. So sorry -- murdered would you anticipate. Guys talking more openly about it. With what's gone say now I mean you wouldn't even probably played against him a couple of times when -- was with the patriots -- this is not a guy. You know not to say that other players from the past. Who -- met similar fate if not the same. More important in the stories -- tragic but like. Junior saying now who is open now we keep played against guys in the league that are in their -- now. I would think that that brings it a little more to the forefront. Did those you know it is definitely brings it up it hits home you know I can remember when I played against him in. I'm ever get enough from us and he made a tackle any task and our memory -- office and -- this is juniors they he's been doing this for twenty years now. And you know what I haven't happened somebody like that it's. It is definitely something you know it makes it more aware you know makes you think about it -- you know. You know it's unfortunate. But you know hopefully things to be taking care of and you know it's not something we have to hear about on a consistent basis. Brett again congratulations. And thanks so much for your time today acute -- -- -- OK -- welcome. For a Jackson. Reese signed by the bills extended through the 2014. Season he is the fifth leading rusher in bills history he only trails fourth place. Actually -- Cool. Nearly trails fourth place by. Less than a hundred yards and searching for it and third place is about 700 yards away. It's right Jules Clark who was. Thurman Thomas and shouldn't be -- no third or you know there anything to sobriety now. We -- -- now. -- And I think advertisement -- battle and it's Huntsman. Night. But now the seventh. Lynch. -- I don't I was ranch and spent. Marshawn Lynch. That arguments. Yet eleventh. -- McGahee yet. 71 muted I valuable I wanted it right guys McNulty at that wanna say is I didn't without but it against the -- -- wanted to be true. And he would have had been third in line make no sense. Cookie Gilchrist was one of the B eight. Both projects is that right that's right it's only billion -- has been that it's got 66 games and it Davis has got to be -- -- That you guys are -- acquitted what to call that phenomenal girl who we really. Where where.
