Jets want Bilal Powell back, NOT C.J. Spiller

All media sources have been saying CJ Spiller’s most likely landing spot is the New York Jets. Well according to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Bilal Powell is their main concern.

@RichCimini: Free-agent watch: The Jets would like to bring back RB Bilal Powell. He’s the priority, not C.J. Spiller. #nyj 

This is what his piece said about the situation:

Crystal ball: The Jets want to re-sign Powell, who would draw a fair amount of interest if he hits the open market. His former coach (Rex Ryan) and position coach (Anthony Lynn) are with the Buffalo Bills, who could lose C.J. Spiller in free agency. Powell’s best football is ahead of him, and the Jets know it. They will make a sincere effort to keep him in the fold. He figures to land something in the $1.6 million-to-$2 million-a-year range, based on James Starks’ two-year, $3.2 million deal last year with the Green Bay Packers. Their career production is similar, and Powell is nearly three years younger.
