It comes as no surprise that Jackson is willing to bet on himself in the Bills' running-back derby:

Brown is an intriguing flier for general manager Doug Whaley.
When McCoy was nursing a concussion late in the 2012 season, Brown showed a rare blend of power and speed en route to 347 rushing yards in his first two NFL starts. That production was the most by an Eagles running back in back-to-back games since Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren more than 60 seasons ago.
Although Brown has obvious talent, he has been beset by ball security woes and a tendency to break too many runs to the outside since that two-game span of rookie success.
As a bit of a reclamation project coming off a lost season, Brown is an ideal third-stringer behind a Jackson-Spiller tandem that has the talent to be the NFL's most productive -- as long as both backs stay healthy.
