Jets ink RB Bernard Pierce, Waive Zac Stacy

By Glenn Naughton


After reportedly failing his team physical, running back Zac Stacy has been waived by Gang Green and replaced by former Baltimore Raven and Jacksonville Jaguar running back Bernard Pierce.

Pierce, a four-year pro out of Temple has struggled since a strong rookie season in 2012 when he averaged 4.9 yards per carry on 108 attempts with the Ravens.

Since then, Pierce has averaged just 3.2 YPC, racking up 813 yards on 251 attempts.

With running backs Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson already under contract, JetNation.com had speculated recently that Stacy was likely on thin ice as training camp approached, and his failed physical clearly did little to help.
