Originally written on One Jet At A Time  |  Last updated 11/20/14
He's on the market once again. Running back Miguel Maysonet has been waived by Philly, after the team added ex-Cowboy Felix Jones last week. There was also some talk of disagreement between the GM and Head Coach, as Chip Kelly expressed some disinterest in the running back, but GM Howie Roseman hooked Maysonet up with a five figure signing bonus.  Whatever the case, the New York Jets now have an opportunity to nail the player that I, personally, have been very high on since before the combine.  Maysonet played one year of college ball at Hofstra before the entire football program was cut from the school, and he transferred to Stony Brook University, a school further east on Long Island. Maysonet would become the Seawolves offense, rushing for a total of 4,725 yards on 695 carries (6.8 yds/carry avg) and 48 rushing TD's, during his three years at SBU. Maysonet was used very sparingly in the receiving game, receiving 18 passes for 191 yards and 4 TD's.  Miguel Maysonet, at 5'9", 209lbs, has drawn comparisons to Ray Rice and, especially, Alfred Morris, who was drafted late in 2012, out of a small school like Maysonet.  With the probable cutting of RB Mike Goodson, the Jets will have Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and John Griffin on the roster. Maysonet isn't a necessity, as the running back core looks better than last season. But Ivory has had injury problems, and is very unproven. That could be the mantra of the entire RB core. Acquiring another promising young back would only help bolster the competition. That is, if he falls to the Jets' waiver claim, or clears waivers to become a free agent. Maysonet could add to the Jets' diverse class, and yes, he could be that fill-in player for the hole in JetNation's heart at the loss of a different back with potential, Danny Woodhead.
