A source told the New York Post on Tuesday that the Jets are looking at free-agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, though they have not, at this point, set a meeting with him. Green-Ellis has spent his entire four-year career with the New England Patriots, rushing for 2,064 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Against the Jets, Green-Ellis has 254 rushing yards and four touchdowns in four career games.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora previously reported that Green-Ellis had visited with the Bengals and was in talks to return to the Patriots. La Canfora also had reported that an unnamed third team had been interested, and suggested the Jets; Tuesday's report seems to confirm that the Jets are that team.
