Bills RB Fred Jackson will take over departed RB Marshawn Lynch's starting spot in the Buffalo backfield, according to an ESPN report.

Lynch was traded to the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Jackson, who rushed for 1,062 yards last year, started 11 games for the Bills in 2009. The 29-year-old beat out rookie RB C.J. Spiller for the job, although both backs are expected to be featured.

The way we see it

Jackson had a huge year last season and has earned the trust of the Bills. The veteran will be able to handle a bigger workload than Spiller and has the ability to set the pace of a game with his running style.

Spiller will be a good change-of-pace back, and should have an impact on the receiving game when he is not carrying the ball.
