Bilal is Back; Jets re-sign Free Agent Running Back

In what’s suddenly a busy day for the Jets, the team has come to terms with running back Bilal Powell.

After missing the end of last season with a neck injury, Powell’s time in Green and White was thought to be over, but now he comes in to compete for a spot in what is suddenly a crowded backfield.

A model of consistency, Powell has never averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry outside of his rookie season and has low miles on a pair of legs that haven’t been heavily taxed in college or the NFL.
