Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson’s agent said it may be up to two weeks before the former Auburn star decides whether to sign with the Kansas City Royals or the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Attorney Richard Woods said the decision might come earlier, but that the outcome depended on when Jackson received a final offer from the Buccaneers.
Jackson and Woods met Friday in Memphis with top officials of the Royals, including the team’s owners, Ewing Kauffman and Avron Fogelman, and General Manager John Schuerholz.
Woods said he and Jackson were “very, very happy with the offer of the Royals,” but he refused to discuss specifics of the proposal. He said the final decision will depend largely on whether Jackson wants to play baseball or football.
