Fred Jackson: Not Happy about Marrone Departure
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson said Monday that former coach Doug Marrone’s sudden departure last week left him feeling jilted.
“Any time you get a text message saying that it’s happening, you feel like you got punched in the stomach,” Jackson said during his weekly appearance on WGR 550 in Buffalo. “I mean, stuff could have been handled different. We don’t … we all weren’t in the room and understand what went down.”
Fred Jackson says he feels Doug Marrone should have handled his Bills exit in a different manner.
Jackson, a team captain and one of the Bills’ most tenured players, added that players must now “move on” after Marrone exercised an opt-out clause and terminated his contract.
