Fred Jackson dunks on Doug Marrone in camp prank

By Mark Gaughan

PITTSFORD -- Several Bills players teamed up to pull a prank on coach Doug Marrone before today's final training camp practice.

Receiver T.J. Graham set it up, and running back Fred Jackson finished it off. Receiver Stevie Johnson posted it on Vine, above.

"They got me today," Marrone told reporters. "Stevie has the video. They dunked on me. It was embarrassing. I told those guys, 'You better watch out.'"

Marrone took it in good stride. His description:

"T.J. Graham was holding one of those backboards with a net on it. I said, 'What are you doing?' He said, 'Well, we're bringing this back.' I said, 'Wait a minute you're bringing it back. Was it here? You're not taking this from St. John Fisher? Then all of a sudden he put it over my head and the next thing I know Fred Jackson comes over and dunks on me and the whole place is going crazy. So they got me."
