Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller protesting the Tashard Choice release?

After veteran running back Tashard Choice was released earlier Wednesday, fellow running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both wore his No. 20 practice jersey during drills that were open to reporters and cameras.

It could be simply a case of both players honoring their former teammate, who had been with the Bills since 2011. But from the outside looking in, the gesture by Jackson, a team captain, as well as Spiller could also create the impression that the two are protesting the Bills’ decision to cut ties with Choice.

The Bills will move on with 6’1 Ronnie Wingo an undrafted free agent from Arkansas. Expect the Bills to sign someone today to fill the missing spot, but I highly doubt it is a running back.
