On how he feels about this opportunity:
It’s just being around a great team. I had a chance to watch the guys play a lot last year on film because pretty much the guys who they were playing we were right behind when I was in Philly (Philadelphia). As well as with Coach Gailey and Coach D. Lee, I call him, Coach (David) Lee. I know he’s been trying to recruit me for a long time since I was coming out of high school to come to Arkansas. To get a chance to come here to study, work hard and listen to the knowledge that they have to bring to the game, my game, make my game even better I thought that was a great opportunity for myself.
On what he took from last season in Philadelphia to make this season better:
One thing I learned a lot of was a lot of film work. Last year and all my previous years I’ve been taught how to be a pocket passer. A lot of guys asked, “Why aren’t you going to run the ball anymore?” My biggest thing was I was trying to learn how to...

On the three day Rookie Mini-Camp:
We had great effort. We got to see some guys run around and try to retain what we had taught them for three days. It was very good work in my opinion. We were able to get outside all three days and we were able to get a lot accomplished.
On if he was impressed with the information retained by the players:
Yea, impressed with some and not impressed with others. But that’s the way it is. You’re trying to find that out. You can watch them run, jump and change direction but you don’t know their mental capacity. That’s the one thing you don’t know off film, so you’re trying to get a good gauge of that going into this weekend.
On what grade he would give to the nine draft picks for retaining information:
They did a good job. I don’t give grades. Grades show up on Sunday afternoons.
On if CB Stephon Gilmore had the look of a first-round pick:
He did a great job during the weekend. He is a big,...

Another good day for us. It’s a big day for the Bills. It’s a big day for Fred Jackson and his family. We always said we want to try to keep our good players and we’ve done it again today with what we think is one of the best backs in the league. I’m going to turn this over to Fred. It’s his day, Fred Jackson.

Big day. First and foremost I want to thank Buddy (Nix) and the whole Bills organization: Mr. Wilson and Jim Overdorf for all the work they did and they put in with my agent Ron Raccuia. They got it done. I always said that I wanted to be here and now I have that opportunity to be here. I thank my wife for putting up with me. With football I know it’s not always easy, the kids love it, Grandma for watching them. It’s just a happy day. I’m happy to be here. I’m glad that this is over with and now I can focus on playing football.
