Jets agree to terms on a deal with RB Bilal Powell


The Jets agreed to terms on a one-year deal with running back Bilal Powell Friday after an impressive workout. The 30-year-old Powell — who played eight seasons with Gang Green after last year was cut short due to a neck injury — joins a backfield that includes Le’Veon Bell, Ty Montgomery and Eli McGuire.

Powell’s varied skill set as a ball carrier and pass catcher could be valuable in Adam Gase’s scheme.

He had 343 rushing yards on 4.3 yards per carry and 110 receiving yards in seven games last season.
