|Jets sign RB Thomas Rawls|
Joins crowded backfield in New York
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Mar 30, 3:10 pm
|The Jets have signed running back Thomas Rawls. (New York Jets)|
FFToday's Take: Rawls posted a fine rookie season (830-4) but has only played in 18 games over the last two seasons thanks to various injuries. The Jets currently have Bilal Powell, Isaiah Crowell and Elijah McGuire in the backfield making it difficult for Rawls to carve out a significant role in the offense. The Jets ranked 17th in rushing attempts (427) last season.
|Browns expected to sign RB Carlos Hyde|
Still in the mix for Saquon Barkley?
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Mar 14, 8:00 am
|On Wednesday morning, they agreed to terms on a three-year deal with former Buckeyes running back Carlos Hyde, a league source confirmed for cleveland.com.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, who first reported the signing, reported that Hyde will receive a three-year deal worth more than $15 million, including $6 million in the first year. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: You have to wonder now if Cleveland is in the mix to draft RB Saquon Barkley in the first round. Isaiah Crowell is expected to sign with the Jets. With Hyde and Duke Johnson in backfield, they could feel comfortable with their veteran running backs without addressing the position in the draft. For now, we're looking at a Hyde-Johnson committee similar to what the Browns have run in the past with Crowell and Johnson.
|Jets re-sign QB Josh McCown, add RB Isaiah Crowell|
One-year, $10 million
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Mar 13, 5:00 pm
|After missing out on Kirk Cousins, the New York Jets addressed their gaping hole at quarterback Tuesday by bringing back Josh McCown, his agent announced via Twitter. The team also will get a boost in the backfield, as former Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell intends to sign a three-year contract with the Jets, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Jets are hell bent in having three viable running backs in there arsenal as Crowell will join Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire in a crowded backfield. Crowell will likely be thrust into the lead role but will have hit or miss fantasy value. McCown in expected to start at quarterback in 2018 regardless of other moves at the position by the Jets in free agency or in the draft.
