Free agent RB Rashad Jennings won the 24th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
Released by the Giants in February, Jennings has been focused on the dancing show. He and his professional dancing partner, Emma Slater, are the fourth duo featuring an NFL player to win the show, joining Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver. Jennings turned 32 earlier this spring and hasn't been linked to a single NFL team. Maybe that will change now that he has time. May 23 - 11:15 PM

The Record reports free agent Rashad Jennings will appear on ABC's Dancing with the Stars this spring.

Released 15 days ago, Jennings has yet to make a visit in free agency. The T.V. appearance will likely have little impact on Jennings' quest to find a new home. Coming off a rough season and turning 32 in late March, Jennings is facing an uphill climb for guaranteed money.
Feb 28 - 6:14 PM

Giants released RB Rashad Jennings.

Jennings was set to make $2.48 million in the final season of his four-year contract. The move creates $2.5 million in cap space. Jennings was the Giants' best back for stretches of 2016, but ended up with a 3.27 YPC. Although a reasonably-effective veteran presence, Jennings served to muddle the Giants' backfield as much as strengthen it over the past two seasons. Ineffective committees were a staple of his time in the Big Apple. One month shy of his 32nd birthday, Jennings will have to hunt for No. 2/3 work in free agency, and won't land much, if any, guaranteed money.
Feb 13 - 1:17 PM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan expects the Giants to "move on" from Rashad Jennings.

It is the logical conclusion considering Jennings averaged 3.3 yards per carry in 2016, lost carries to Paul Perkins at the end of the season, is soon to turn 32, and counts over $3 million versus the cap. The Giants will look to remake their backfield, and cutting Jennings should be step one in that endeavor.

Rashad Jennings said he expects "to be back" with the Giants in 2017.

His expectation may prove to be a disappointment. Going on 32, Jennings averaged just 3.3 yards per carry in 2016, and the Giants can save $2.5 million against the cap by releasing him. With Paul Perkins likely to take on a bigger role, Shane Vereen -- if he is retained -- coming back healthy, and another back likely to be added via free agency or the draft, Jennings has probably played his final snap with the Giants.
Jan 31 - 9:06 AM

The Giants would save $2.5 million in salary cap space by releasing Rashad Jennings.

The NY Daily News' Pat Leonard doesn't envision Jennings being back with the team for the final year of his contract at 32 years old. Jennings had a strong finish to the 2015 season but never really got going this past season, averaging a career-low 3.3 YPC on his way to 593 yards and three touchdowns. Look for the Giants to give Paul Perkins more of a chance. Leonard also mentions impending free agents LeGarrette Blount and Eddie Lacy as intriguing possibilities.
Jan 27 - 10:32 AM

Rashad Jennings rushed five times for 29 yards and caught his lone target for a gain of four in the Giants' Wild Card loss to Green Bay.

He touched the ball six times to Paul Perkins' 13 in the Giants' most important game of the season. Simply out of gas going on age 32, Jennings will likely be released this offseason.
Jan 8 - 8:58 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

Jennings added a five-yard catch. Despite the heavy workload, Jennings actually got out-touched and out-produced by rookie Paul Perkins. That's been a theme in recent weeks. Perkins could be the Giants' feature back in the Wild Card round, though some sort of committee will still be employed.
Jan 1 - 8:33 PM

Rashad Jennings said the Giants are going to "put it all out there" Week 17 against the Redskins.

"It’s a privilege to play this game and go out every single week," Jennings said. "That’s how we’re going to do it this weekend." Landon Collins added the team will put "the pedal to the metal." Ben McAdoo clearly has his players coached up well on what to say, but it still seems unlikely Eli Manning and Odell Beckham play a full complement of snaps in what is, despite the party line, a meaningless game.

Rashad Jennings rushed nine times for 44 yards and caught 4-of-5 passes for seven yards in Week 16 against the Eagles.

Jennings remained in a timeshare with Paul Perkins. He continued to get outplayed, but managed over 4.0 YPC for the first time since Week 12. Jennings won't be a recommended fantasy option for the Giants' season-finale against Washington.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 11:59:00 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed 18 times for 38 yards in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Jennings and Paul Perkins each saw eight carries in the first half, but Jennings was the one getting the rock in the second half, out-carrying Perkins 18-11 at the end of the day. Perkins, however, severely out-played him, rushing for 56 yards to Jennings' 38. Jennings will be an RB3 next week at the Eagles.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:39:00 PM

Rashad Jennings had 15 carries for 45 yards and two catches for 12 yards in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Jennings played in a timeshare with Paul Perkins. He saw more third-down snaps after Shane Vereen (concussion) left in the first half but failed to do anything. Jennings has rushed for under 60 yards in three straight games. He should be avoided for a Week 15 matchup with the Lions.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:41:00 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed six times for 19 yards and caught all six of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Jennings did nothing on the ground and was actually given one less carry than Paul Perkins. However, he played a substantial role in the passing game by providing a season-high six catches. Jennings scored his only touchdown on a 13-yard screen pass from Eli Manning about midway through the third quarter. He was fortunate the play held up as Ereck Flowers was clearly guilty of holding. Jennings’ six carries were a season-low. With Perkins cutting into his workload, Jennings won’t be more than an RB3 next week against the Cowboys.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 08:15:00 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 55 yards in the Giants' Week 12 win over the Browns.

Jennings "added" two catches for four yards. If you throw out the fact that the Giants won 27-13 to send Cleveland to 0-12, it was an extremely disappointing performance from Ben McAdoo's offense against one of the league's worst defenses. Cleveland entered the afternoon a distant 31st in rushing yards allowed, but a struggling Eli Manning made it hard for the G-Men to sustain drives. Jennings will be a low-end RB2 against the Steelers in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 05:36:00 PM

Rashad Jennings played 47-of-67 (70%) snaps Week 11 against the Bears.

After closing out the Week 10 win with some strong running in the fourth quarter, Jennings was rewarded with a workhorse role against the Bears. He out-touched Paul Perkins 26-to-6 and out-snapped him 47-to-20. Seemingly entrenched as the lead back, Jennings will be an upside RB2 in a great matchup against the Browns this week.
