Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson told co-host Bob Koshinski on his WBBZ-TV show Monday night that he is excited to have defensive end Shawne Merriman back on the team. The Bills cut Merriman in August during the pre-season. He was not picked up by another team, and continued his workouts here in the Buffalo area. Linebacker Bryan Scott, Jackson's guest on the show, added that Merriman is a hard-working teammate.
When asked about the Bills' 19-16 overtime win Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, Jackson saidthat, after the loss in San Francisco, the team came together to make some good plays and get a win.
Koshinski breaks down the game on his website, www.allsportswny.com.
Members of the Cleveland Hill High School football team from Cheektowaga filled the studio audience to ask questions of the star players.
