Jets’ Breece Hall seems unhappy with the prospect of Ezekiel Elliott landing in New York
New York Jets running back Breece Hall recently welcomed the idea of quarterback Aaron Rodgers joining his team’s roster.
But he seems to disapprove of sharing backfield carries with free-agent running back Ezekiel Elliott.
On Thursday afternoon, sources confirmed to Fox News Digital that Elliott had narrowed down his list of potential teams to the Bengals, Eagles and Jets.

Just over 30 minutes later, Hall took to Twitter and seemed to throw cold water on the idea of Elliott joining Gang Green.
“I think we’re good here @8kMike hbu?” Hall wrote, tagging fellow runner Michael Carter, along with a yawning emoji.
Hall’s tweet may not be directed at Elliott, but it does suggest that the 2022 second-round draft pick is happy with the state of the Jets’ running back room.

New York made a roster change Thursday, re-signing Ty Johnson to a one-year deal, ESPN reported. The Jets now have four running backs under contract: Johnson, Hall, Carter and Zonovan Knight.
Johnson appeared in all 17 of the Jets’ games last season. He played on 16% of the offensive snaps and rushed for 160 yards with one touchdown. He also caught 12 passes for 88 yards.
Elliott is coming off a season in which he posted career lows in rushing attempts, rushing yards and career average. He managed to rush for 12 touchdowns, but became a second choice behind Tony Pollard.
Elliott signed a six-year, $90 million contract extension in 2019 but has been on the decline ever since. A knee injury sidelined him for two games in 2022. When he returned, he wore a brace for the rest of the year.

Elliott had become a reliable pass catcher out of the backfield, but his receiving numbers also dipped in 2022. He posted career lows in receiving yards (5.4) and receiving yards per game (6.1).
