Jets Acquiring RB James Robinson From Jaguars, per Report

the Jets are acquiring running back James Robinson from jaguars for draft pick compensation, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported. New York will send a sixth-round pick who could become a fifth-round pick, per report.

New York recently lost rookie running back Breece Hall for the season with a torn ACL suffered Sunday against the Broncos. Through seven games, Hall had totaled 463 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

Robinson spent the past two seasons as the Jaguars’ lead rusher, including a 1,000-yard season in 2020. However, he began missing playing time against Travis Etienne Jr. this year while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon in the last year.

So far this season, Robinson has 340 rushing yards and three touchdowns, but has totaled just 110 rushing yards in the last four games combined.

On Sunday against the Giants, Robinson didn’t get a carry or a catch the entire game as Etienne dominated bunting. After the game, head coach Doug Pederson emphasized that the team did not lose confidence in Robinson.

“It’s been good every week and something we really have to watch and see,” he said, via Jaguar Report’s John Shipley. “We know T.J. [Travis Etienne, Jr.] He’s done a good job of taking over there, but we need everyone. We need James, and we still have a lot of confidence in James. It’s nothing about lack of confidence or anything. We just have to make sure he’s 100% before we move on.”

Robinson will join Michael Carter in the Jets’ backfield who will try to replicate Hall’s production. He will be a restricted free agent after the season.
