We'll close things up on Wednesday by staying in Western New York, where another minor surprise took place.
Mind you, it isn't that running back Fred Jackson hasn't been productive when healthy for the Bills. Just last year Jackson led the Bills in rushing and tallied over 1,200 total yards.
However, Jackson has battled injuries in recent years, and at 33 years young, Jackson is the elder statesman of NFL running backs.
Still, that didn't stop the Bills from inking him to a contract extension that will keep him in the fold through 2015, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Mike Garafaolo of Fox Sports passed along financial details:
Bills RB Fred Jackson, skedded to make $2.7m this year, adds one more year at $2.6m. Another $1m in incentives is available.

It's a nice gesture, and money Jackson has earned, but it does little to clear up a muddied Bills backfield that also contains C.J. Spiller and Bryce Brown.
Unless, as Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports recently opined, the Bills really are kicking the tires on the idea of trading Spiller.
