And I don't understand why they didn't trade him since they won't give him the ball. It's like they WANT to make a waste of that first round pick. It's nuts.
We’ll never know for sure, of course, but my guess is teams were saying, “Well, we originally graded him as a third-round pick, so we’ll give you a fifth for him. It’s not our fault you took him in the first.”

I wonder if the Lions tried to get him in the Diggs deal? They didn't need a lead back at the time but injury history of Kerryon Johnson would tell you that he's only good for 5-6 games / year before he hits the IR.

Obviously Pete's got him on his fantasy team. I thought Penny would've had a bigger load back when Carson was fumbling the job away.

You gotta admit, no other team can make piss-poor football so dramatic. Most teams that suck just disappear off the radar until they're relevant again. Not the Jets though.

Interesting question since the teams had recently dealt.

I think he would’ve gotten that chance had he not been dinged up when the worst of it was happening.

Penny probably sucks at pass pro and they don't want to risk getting Russell Wilson killed by a RB that can't block which is probably the reason he never plays?

Or maybe the Jets didn't want the Cowboys 32nd pick next year.

Nice play call, but there's no way you draw up a play that assumes the CB covering Kupp gets tripped by the turf monkey. Lol.

What happened to that Bengals fan who would post photos from all the games he attended in this forum?

He has gone MIA.
Lol, been a little busy giving my passport a workout. Nice to know I'm missed.

At least you had fun though you deserve better from your team.
