The Dallas Cowboys are not interested in bringing Arlington native Fred Jackson home.
The nine-year veteran was cut by the Buffalo Bills on Monday.
Jackson is 34 years old, which takes him out of the mix for a team that is focused on youth at every position, but especially running back.
The lack of interest in Jackson, however, doesn’t mean the Cowboys are set at running back with Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar.
Never miss a local story.
The Cowboys like their backs and feel good about McFadden, who showed some burst with four carries for 37 yards against the Minnesota Vikings last Saturday.
But vice president Stephen Jones said the team will keep an eye out for a young running back to add to the mix as cuts are announced over the next week. The final roster cutdown to 53 is Saturday.
“If we saw a young running back to add to the mix, we’d certainly look at it,” Jones said on his radio show in 105.3 The Fan.
The Cowboys host Houston in their final preseason game on Thursday. The regular season opener is Sept. 13 against the New York Giants.
