Jets added some mean, nasty running backs to the mean green gang. Le’Veon Bell signed away from the Pittsburgh Steelers and instantly provided an enormous boost to the ground game. His presence alone will aid in the development of young star Quarterback Darnold.

The Jets somehow swayed him to come to play in New York, and it was more than just the money, Bell was in dire need of a fresh start away from his previous organization. With the Jets, he will find very quickly that the fans and the city will appreciate him the same way they did Saquon Barkley for the New York Giants.

The Jets still have Bilal Powell on the roster to add another strong veteran presence and an excellent downhill runner. The addition of several other young backs such as De’Angelo Henderson Sr., Elijah McGuire, and Trenton Cannon could make for an exciting groups of backs during the preseason.

The Jets have a ton of speed at the halfback position coming into summer workouts and the opening of camp after the number 1 &2 spots it’ll be tough to guess who will claim that number 3 & 4 spot of the running back depth chart. However, having too many options for depth is a problem I’m sure the organization is happy to have.
