Fred Jackson has been released by the Buffalo Bills.

"Today, we had to make the difficult decision to release Fred Jackson," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said in a statement. "He had an incredible career for this organization for the past 10 years.

"We thank Fred for his hard work, dedication and leadership during his tenure with the Buffalo Bills. Fred has inspired the city of Buffalo in a number of ways. Fred and his family have been dedicated to this community, and we can't thank them enough for their contributions through his career."

The Bills will save about $2.5 million off their 2015 salary cap by releasing Jackson. NFL Players Association records listed the Bills with $6.6 million in cap space Monday morning.
