The Jets have inquired about disgruntled Rams running back Zac Stacy, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports citing sources. The Jets have not yet made a formal offer for the Rams’ 2013 fifth-round pick, according to a source.
The 5-9, 224-pound Stacy, who rushed for 973 yards as a rookie in 2013 before dropping on the depth chart last season (293 yards, 1 TD), wants out after St. Louis drafted Georgia RB Todd Gurley with the No. 10 pick on Thursday night.
The Rams are shopping the 24-year-old Stacy, who tweeted “yikes” after the Gurley pick. He later deleted the tweet.
Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell are the top two healthy running backs on the roster. Todd Bowles didn’t put a definitive timetable on Stevan Ridley’s return after suffering an ACL injury last year.
