The fourth-round draft pick gets $4 million for four years. Just how much Perine will see the field remains to be seen as Le’Veon Bell and Frank Gore are in the same running back room as training camp approaches.
With the Perine deal now done, the Jets still have to come to terms with left tackle Mekhi Becton, safety Ashtyn Davis, punter Braden Mann, quarterback James Morgan and defensive lineman Jabari Zuniga.
