Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Yesterday the Jets traded away a conditional pick to the Miami Dolphins for RB Kalen Ballage. Ballage has some familiarity with Head Coach Adam Gase, but his production as a runner has been pretty horrendous. I’m assuming that Ballage won’t reach the conditions for the Jets to give away that draft pick, but if he does I suppose that would be a good thing for both teams. My best guess is that he’s going to essentially be an ‘emergency’ back, as he’s someone who’s already familiar with Gase’s playbook and could fill in for a couple of snaps if a person ahead of him in the depth chart goes down. I’m not entirely sure why they’d trade for him given the RBs the team has, but it’s basically a non-issue. So with that, here are your links to the team to start your morning.
