In this article, we try and sort out what the signing of running back Jonathan Grimes means for the New York Jets.

A running back that the Houston Texans loved was Jonathan Grimes, who they stashed on their practice squad. The Texans love hidden gems, such as UDFA Arian Foster, so what can we learn about Grimes? Here is a fun article on ten things to know about him. Grimes as a UDFA as well, out of the College of William & Mary, where he was a four year starter. Here is another good article by Bleacher Report on Grimes. Sounds promising enough!

So what does this mean for our existing players? Well, first of all, the team is not happy with Shonn Greene, as they should be. I suspect it means we're about to see a full committee approach to the running back position, and everyone should get a decent number of touches. It also means that the team is trying to fix the problems it recognizes exists, which is obviously a good thing. It's also interesting, considering we play the Texans in two weeks. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
