Seahawks new running back is dominating already in Seattle

Fred Jackson is now a Seattle Seahawk, and according to a report by Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, the former Bills running back had a shot to go to New England but decided to pick Seattle instead. His new head coach is mind blown because the former D3 superstar at Coe College was able to pick up the entire playbook already.

“He ran the whole offense today,” Carroll said of Jackson, per the newspaper. “I don’t know how he got it all done, but he got it done in a day.”

Carroll noted that Jackson would “play a lot” in Sunday’s regular-season opener against the St. Louis Rams, saying: “He’s going to give us some real secure play right now coming out of the backfield and doing some things for us that we need some help on.”

Jackson has never been to the playoffs but the former Bills running back is happy where he landed. 

“I couldn’t have picked a better place to come to,” Jackson said. “… This is the best thing that could have happened to me.”
