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...

Maurice Jones-Drew could be headed to the Big Apple

The New York Jets desperately need skill position players. Their leading ball carriers in 2013 were Chris Ivory (833 yards) and Bilal Powell (697).

New York Jets Pre-Free Agency/Draft Roster Breakdown – Running Back

The state of the New York Jets’ running backs

If there’s one thing the Jets could lean on while moving down the field, it was the running game. And while that was in large part due to the ineptitude we constantly saw at the quarterback position, it’s also in no small part because of the talent on the roster. By season’s end, the Jets found roles for each of their backs, and weren’t afraid to use the hot hand when needed...

Top 10 free agent running backs for the New York Jets

As much as the Jets offense may have struggled at times throughout 2013, the running game was never really an issue. Sure, there were times when they couldn’t move the ball through the air. And there were times when the offensive line became more holy than the Pope, himself. But the running game tended to work. Chris Ivory finished the season with 833 yards and a 4.6 yards-per...

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...

Top 10 running back prospects for the New York Jets

The New York Jets may not have had the best offense in 2013, but the running game wasn’t really one of the reasons why. Chris Ivory started to come on at the end of the season and finished the year with 833 yards and a 4.6 yards-per-carry average. Bilal Powell ran for 697 yards and even had a 149-yard game against the Buffalo Bills. The running game worked. Over at the main site...

Do the Jets need to add a running back?

The 2013 season served as a great learning experience for the Jets. While they did not make the playoffs, the front office and coaching staff can take the results on the field, study them and improve the team for 2014 run to the Super Bowl. One piece of the puzzle that may have been solved during the 8-8 season was the running back situation. During the offseason, the Jets let the...

  Bilal Powell (a running back) threw a left handed pass out of the wildcat formation. Rarely do we see these plays end well but this one actually worked to perfect. Geno Smith lined up as a wide receiver and it was a major conversion for the New York Jets.
