Veteran running back Fred Jackson’s long run with the Bills came to an end before the start of the 2015 season when Buffalo released him in a move that came as a bit of surprise.
Jackson wound up signing with the Seahawks and saw action in every game for Seattle in both the regular season and playoffs. He didn’t see much action on the ground in those games — 29 total carries for 111 yards — even as the Seahawks dealt with injuries to both Marshawn Lynch and his replacement Thomas Rawls, but caught 36 passes in his 18 appearances with the team.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Jackson, who turned 35 on Saturday, doesn’t want that to be his swan song as an NFL player. Rapoport reports that Jackson wants to continue playing for an 11th season.
The Seahawks have Rawls under contract for next season and Christine Michael is set to be a restricted free agent after returning to the team late in the season. With Lynch retiring, they will likely be in the market for at least one more back this offseason although they may be looking for one who projects to a larger role than the one Jackson played for them last season.
