New York Jets: Options at running back

With the release of Johnson, the Jets are likely to add someone else in what looks to...

New York Jets Bilal Powell’s Role: The Third Head

Much has been made of the New York Jets new look backfield for 2014.  Chris Ivory put together a strong 2013 season, pushing 4.6 yards per carry. Enter Chris Johnson: an explosive playmaker with an unbroken string of 1,000 yard seasons. This tandem was expected to provide a formidable one-two punch out of the backfield. But the Jets added an unforeseen piece to the puzzle this...

New York Jets: Biggest winners in camp so far

New York Jets training camp is going as smoothly as a New York Jets training camp can be expected to go. There’s drama, but it’s no Sanchez v. Tebow. There’s chatter, but is anyone truly surprised?

Too Many New York Jets Draft Rumors: Trading into Top 10?

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported two things about the New York Jets last night, but they sounded funny together in the same sentence.

Their target is the Top 10, and I’m told they are very hot on #LSU WR Odell Beckham.” If you follow me on Twitter @Adam_Zielonka, you know I was very skeptical...

Chris Johnson released – why the New York Jets should sign him

He refused to take a pay cut. His relationship with the Tennessee Titans seemed irreparable. Finally, Chris Johnson was released Friday. After a week of discussion about DeSean Jackson’s release (for an entirely different reason) and about whether the Jets ought to try to sign him, another new offensive weapon hits free agency and becomes the biggest name, the only name to talk...

Where do the Jets go from here at running back?

Running back just isn’t a priority for the New York Jets. With glaring issues in the secondary, at wide receiver, at tight end and outside linebacker, it’s hard to imagine Gang Green targeting the offensive backfield in either the early part of free agency or the first few rounds of the draft. Incumbent 1a-1b backs Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are still under contract, as is...
