RB Roy Helu Drawing Interest From The Jets

The Jets re-signed Bilal Powell today, but they may not be done at the RB position.

According to Brian Costello, the Jets are showing some interest in the former Washington Redskins RB

Helu got his career off to a great start in 2011 by rushing for 640 yards on 151 attempts for a positive 4.2 yard per average. Last season Helu was very much a complementary back carrying the football just 40 times for 216 yards. Helu is a very reliable receiver out of the backfield, he caught 42 passes on 47 targets last season for 477 yards and 2 touchdowns. I'm a big Helu fan, he broke 26 tackles last year which is a fantastic number for only touching the ball 82 times. Adding him to Ivory and Powell would be a very positive move.
