Jets to work out RB Pete Guerriero

Manish Mehta report the Jets will have a workout this weekend with running back Pete Guerriero.

Guerriero was highly productive for Monmouth. He ran for 1,995 yards in 2019 on only 298 carries, a 6.7 average. He also added 32 catches for 336 yards. He scored 20 touchdowns from scrimmage. A small school prospect needs to be dominant to get a look in the NFL, and Guerriero was dominant.

He also ran the 40 yard dash in 4.47 seconds at Monmouth’s pro day. That is extremely fast for a running back, even though running back isn’t a position where 40 time necessarily translates to playing quality.

Presumably if signed Guerriero would be competing more for a practice squad spot than one on the active roster. It seems unlikely he would have a meaningful role for the Jets in 2020. Instead the team would simply be looking at whether he was work developing long-term.
