Thread: GOODSON, IVORY HAVE POTENTIAL FOR JETS/ CUMBERLAND A BACK- UP AT BEST

    Cool GOODSON, IVORY FOR JETS/ CUMBERLAND A BACK- UP AT BEST

    as per rotoworld....

    ==Though blessed with versatility, starting-caliber talent, and some big-play ability, Goodson is among the NFL's most injury-prone backs. Powell is a plodder who shouldn't be guaranteed a roster spot. McKnight is a scatback at best.

    I suspect the Jets will stick to a run-oriented offense if only because their passing-game personnel are so putrid. Sanchez wouldn't be on the roster if not for a guaranteed $8.5 million salary. Holmes is coming off a Lisfranc fracture and tends to play when he wants to play. Cumberland is a stiff, upright catch-first tight end lacking field-stretching ability. He's not a viable replacement for Dustin Keller. Kerley is a solid slot weapon and Hill is 22 years old with a high ceiling, but neither is a legitimate No. 1 receiver. It remains to be seen whether Holmes can (wants?) to be that guy.

    2013 Breakout Candidate: Goodson. The Jets gave Goodson a nice contract -- $6.9 million over three years -- which suggests he's a big part of their plans. Goodson's breakout candidacy could take a hit if Ivory or an early-round rookie back were acquired, but for now he's penciled in as the starter. For his career, Goodson averages 4.51 yards per carry. If his health cooperates, Goodson will have no trouble running circles around Powell in training camp practices. If Ivory comes board, he would surpass Goodson as the Jets' top breakout candidate.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what this stable of 'backs can do. I think there's some nice versatility here, and if we end up with multiple-back sets, I could imagine some real matchup headaches for opposing DCs.

    How long ago was this written, Rip Van Winkle? No mention that Ivory has been signed. No mention that Winslow has been signed...

    Did your dog also hit the New Thread button twice? Because once wasn't enough?

    Well, let's just see if we draft RB early or acquire Ivory.

    I have a feeling Eddie Lacy might drop all the way to the end of the 2nd round. Maybe the Jets can make a play for him if he drops?

    I also think Goodson has potential. Word is, he does an excellent job of staying awake while on the interstate, so I'm expecting him to turn heads all offseason.
