Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News expects sophomore Elijah McGuire to be the Jets' third-down back this season.
"Eli looks fantastic to be perfectly honest," RBs coach Stump Mitchell said. "I’ll tell you who I see Eli as — and he’s in the Hall of Fame. Eli has the skill set to be a LaDainian Tomlinson if he was given that opportunity." Hefty praise for the 2017 sixth-rounder. McGuire posted an 88-315-1 rushing line as a rookie, adding 17-177-1 as a receiver. The Jets signed Isaiah Crowell to a $12 million deal in March for early downs, and it sounds like McGuire has the edge over Bilal Powell for pass-game work. The Jets can save $4 million cutting Powell. Jun 15 - 9:10 AM
