Bilal Powell gets chance to impress Jets in workout
June 8, 2019 | News | No Comments|
A very different Jets backfield could be welcoming back a familiar face.
The Jets are working out running back Bilal Powell on Friday, a source told The Post’s Brian Costello.
Powell, 30, suffered a season-ending neck injury, thought to be career-threatening initially, in an October loss to the Vikings last season. Powell, who has made a full recovery, had rushed for 343 yards on 80 carries in 2018 before the injury.
Powell was splitting carries with Isaiah Crowell last season. If the Jets sign Powell, he would be battling for carries with third-year back Elijah McGuire and veteran Ty Montgomery behind Le’Veon Bell.
