The Seattle Seahawks and free-agent running back Fred Jackson agreed to terms on a one-year deal Friday, according to a person familiar with the contract talks.
The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been signed. NFL.com first reported Jackson and the Seahawks had agreed to terms.
Jackson, an eight-year veteran became a free agent Monday when the Bills cut the respected team leader and fan favorite. The Seahawks' interest in Jackson emerged when they learned that backup running back Robert Turbin sustained a significant high-ankle sprain last Saturday in a preseason game against San Diego.
