ASHBURN, Va (WDVM) — In mid-March, Washington Commanders veteran running back J.D. McKissic was about to sign with the Buffalo Bills.
Not long after that, McKissic pulled out of his deal with the Bills and resigned with the Commanders. The contract was the exact same that Buffalo offered, two years for $7 million.
“I had unfinished business in Washington,” said McKissic. “The way we left off, I felt like we were inclining.”
