Seahawks officially announce the signing of Fred Jackson

Bills have released Fred Jackson

Seahawks officially announced today that running back Fred Jackson has signed a deal

The Seattle Seahawks were the first team to contact Fred Jackson when he was released, and that was because his former teammate Marshawn Lynch pounded the table for him. Today the Seahawks signed Fred Jackson officially.  Pete Carroll spoke today during an appearance on 710 ESPN in Seattle Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll shared some of what the Seahawks will be asking Jackson to do this season.

“I’ve asked him to really dig into the throwing game so that he can be a third-down guy for us,” Carroll said. “He’s not going to have any trouble with the run game, he’ll know what’s going on there, he’ll pick that up, but the pass-protection stuff is really what will tax him the most. He understands it, he’s a good pass-pro guy and he’s a terrific catcher, so that part is going to fit in really well, the security of that. We like Marshawn on third down, we like using him there, but he needs a break now and then, so I like to have a real steady guy going in.”

Fred Jackson is a locker room leader and a great person. This is a wonderful signing for the Seahawks. Fred Jackson may be 34 years old, but the guy still has that “It” factor.
