With Ridley Likely Hitting PUP, Jets Should Unleash Ivory

Despite a perceived need for a space back with the ability to catch passes and create big plays, the Jets elected to sign former Patriots running back Stevan Ridley to a one-year, $1.25 million contract this offseason. Ridley’s career numbers, including a 1,263-yard season in 2012, make the contract look like a steal, but the Jets got a discount thanks to the 26-year-old tearing...

New York Jets UK Chronicles – The 2015 Backfield

A recent article published on NFL.com ranked the Jets running back group at 20th overall in the league coming into 2015.

New York Jets: Position battles to watch in minicamp

Running back Anyone who has ever watched Chris Ivory play football knows that he does a lot of things very well, and does other things not so well. Running the football is one of the things that number 33 does very well, but catching the football and then running with it is a whole different story. Simply put, Ivory has hands of stone.

New York Jets Positional Roster Review: Running Backs

Give Rex Ryan credit where it's due, where his Jets teams typically lacked in the passing game (i.e. most of the time) he made up for it with by overachieving in the running game.For years the Jets were one of the NFL's best running teams - even in their worst years and even when it was blatantly obvious that all they were going to do was run, teams still struggled to stop the Jets...

The Jets have somewhat of a dilemma on their hands: they have two running backs with incredibly similar skill sets. Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley are both bruising backs who hit the hole hard, and offer little to nothing in the passing game.
