Jackson also received a $3 million signing bonus in the deal, which was announced Monday.

The five-year NFL veteran ran for 934 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games last year before a fractured fibula ended his season.

The Bills also have agreed to a four-year deal with linebacker Tank Carder, his agent, Kelli Masters, told on Thursday.

Carder was the Bills' fifth-round pick in April's NFL draft. Carder accumulated 228 tackles, 25 for losses, 5.5 sacks and four interceptions in three years as a starter at TCU.
