The #Jets have released RB Isaiah Crowell, given the addition of some other big-time RB they signed that you may have heard of.

A little surprising.  I think we need some depth.  Not like he was that expensive.  Replace him with Yeldon?

Maybe that means we have some ink on some paper somewhere?   

I'd hate to see us let Crowell go and what's his name accept a slightly larger deal somewhere else.

How does this impact on his Dude Wipes contract?

We save 8M, over 2 years. 3M this year, 5M next.  Take that off of Bell's contract, since this is a direct swap (you don't need Crow if you have Bell) and the net effect of Bell's deal is 4 years, 44.5M

Nice. Thank you, I was slightly confused on this one. Thought we saved 3..take a 2M hit which gave us 1 mill in saving.

Well he had one ridiculously nice game for sure.  DEN is still bleeding from their bottoms over that one.

Replace him with a mid-late round RB.  We have Elijah McGuire under contract thru 2020.  We don't need a free agent backup.

If there's an injury, pick a RB up off the street after Week 1, when his salary won't be guaranteed.

I'll take Benny Snell in round 4, thanks.

Not surprised but not sure if this was a smart move.

Was relatively cheap depth and Bell hasn't played in over a year.

Need to add a RB for depth....probably somebody in that $2-4M range.

I think they're fine with McGuire/Henderson/Cannon behind Bell.  There's no RB on the market who is such an upgrade over McGuire or Henderson that it makes sense to pay even a 2-4M free agent deal to bring them in. Maybe - maybe - Spencer Ware, if he's healthy.

Not going to happen with Bell in the fold. There's no point in drafting a RB in the 4th round to have them sit behind Bell for at least 2 years of their rookie deal, hopefully 3 (and maybe all 4).  You don't spend 4th round picks to upgrade "backup RB"

If someone intriguing slips into the 6th round, and you think they can replace Cannon or Henderson on the depth chart? Sure.  But no earlier than that

Good. It makes no sense to have any other RB making significant money on the roster now that we have Bell. He's an every down RB. When he needs a breather McGuire is more than capable of coming in for a few plays.

If he was a good guy, or could block, maybe I'd feel differently.  Good riddance.  The only downside is the 2million in dead money.  He is easily replaceable.  Easily.

Probably should also include the $2M in dead money Crowell is still costing.

Still probably makes sense to cut, but could've justified keeping him this year for an extra $3M, cutting him next year and saving $4M with only $1M in dead money.  McGuire is at best an adequate 2nd RB.
