There's no denying that this is pure speculation, but In regards to the Jets rumored targets in free agency, one thing that stands out is that the team is reportedly on the lookout for a running back who can do all of the same things Bilal Powell does.
The Jets, who also re-signed Josh McCown to a one-year, $10 million deal on Tuesday, are getting a player who has held plenty of promise for a couple of seasons now, but hasn't developed into the star that some (me) thought he'd become.
A former undrafted free agent, Crowell rushed for 3,118 yards and 21 touchdowns in four seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He rushed for 853 yards and two touchdowns, his lowest scoring total of his career.
Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell (34) runs with the ball against the Chicago Bears during the first half at Soldier Field.
An undrafted free agent coming out of Alabama State, Crowell caught on with the Browns shortly after the 2014 National Football League draft.
Crowell played in all 16 games for the winless Browns in 2017. Crowell has not been utilized much in the passing game, although he had 40 receptions in 2016. Crowell fumbled just six times on his 737 carries with the Browns, and three of those miscues came during his rookie season.
