With the injured hamstring hindering Chris Ivory’s ability to practice with the New York Jets, coupled with Mike Goodson’s dissapearing act (seriously, would anyone be surprised if Mike Goodson turned up with the 14 seconds missing from the Watergate Tapes?), and Joe McKnight’s overlall ineffectiveness, it’s becoming clear that the Jets are going to have to bring in some reinforcements at the running back position. We at TOJ decided to take a look at five realistic options that the Jets can/should target at RB, either via free agency or trade, and ranked them in order from most likely to least likely. Let’s get to it. 1. Roy Helu, RB, Washington Redskins Breakdown: Helu, a former fourth round pick in 2011, flashed great cutback ability, elusiveness, and good hands out of the backfield in 2011. Helu notched 151 carries for 640 yards and two touchdowns, while racking up 49 catches for 379 yards. Helu was, also, a solid pass blocker and is still very young as he did not see much playing time
