NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Bills give Fred Jackson an extension; Bye Bye Spiller?

Today the Buffalo Bills gave Fred Jackson, their leader in the locker room a contract extension.

This could mean goodbye CJ Spiller especially when you look at the team signing both Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown in the off-season.

@NFL_ATL: Fred Jackson signs contract extension with Bills.

The Bills are claiming they will they do not and are not looking to trade Spiller , but if a good offer comes across the table, I doubt they will pass it up.

Last year the Colts traded a first rounder for Trent Richardson. Spiller is a way better back than T-Rich.

Former GM says the Browns don’t have a franchise quarterback

Sharing his practice notes with NFL Network’s Around The League, Charlie Casserly — the former Redskins general manager — believes that Cleveland’s “quarterback of the future is tied to its two No. 1 draft choices for next year,” writing: “I don’t think Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel will be the answer.”

This is not good for new head coach Mike Pettine, if it comes to fruition.
