B Jackson wants a bigger role?

Not really sure how to take this when a player is given almost an entire season to prove he's worth having a bigger role and then repeatedly shows he's really best regulated to the same role he was in before.

 

I like Brandon Jackson when he's being used right, as a 3rd down back...but I guess most of our suspicions were proven right this year when he underwhelmed as THE MAN for our running game. I really hope we can bring him back but I also hope we don't expand his role...he is what he is. Anyone disagree?

Brandon Jackson, RB GB News: The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that RB Brandon Jackson, who helped the Packers win Super Bowl XLV, heads into the offseason as a free agent. Jackson didn’t have any idea how things would eventually work out. He said he wants to come back to Green Bay, but he would like a more extensive role in an offense beyond the third-down back and being a pass-blocker. Jackson became the No. 1 back in 2010 when Ryan Grant was injured in the season-opener, but lost the job to rookie James Starks in the final stretch of the season. "That was always No. 1 when I came in — just getting a fair chance, a fair opportunity to help lead this team," Jackson said. I feel like I’m a great leader. But it’s not really up to me. If the Packers want me. They got me. … If it’s here I’m on board. If it’s somewhere else, hey, I’ve got to go take care of my family."
