Matt Forte will remain with Jets for 2017

New York Jets running back Matt Forte is "staying" for 2017, ESPN reporter Rich Cimini said. What It Means: The 31-year-old is due $4 million next year and is coming off knee surgery, but his roster spot doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. With that said, there's a strong likelihood Forte's role will be scaled back in 2017 after getting outplayed by Bilal Powell down the stretch. Among the 42 running backs to attempt at least 100 rushes, Forte's Rushing Net Expected Points per attempt came in 15th-lowest this year. Teammate Bilal Powell was third-best among the same players by...

Jets looking to acquire Jay Cutler

The New York Jets are a "possibility" to acquire Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports. What It Means: The Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their new quarterbacks coach on Wednesday, which could indicate a move in the offing. Bates was Cutler's quarterbacks coach with the Denver Broncos, and then Bates was brought over to Chicago in 2012 to work with Cutler again. On top of Bates, the Jets also currently employ former Bears teammates running back Matt Forte and wide receiver Brandon Marshall. It could be a match. The Bears are fully expected to release...

Matt Forte Had a Low Rate of Big Runs for the Jets in 2016: A Look at Big Play Ratio for the NFL's Most Used Backs

Matt Forte Had a Low Rate of Big Runs for the Jets in 2016: A Look at Big Play Ratio for the NFL's Most Used Backs

It probably is no great surprise if you watched the Jets, but Matt Forte was not a big play runner in 2016. I wanted to get an idea about which backs made big runs. Fortunately, Pro Football Reference's Play Index is our friend. There were 19 backs in the NFL this season with at least 200 carries. These were the subjects of my test. It is easier to rip off a higher percentage of big runs if you don't have the same workload. Your body can rest, and you can empty the tank on runs. If you are a three down back taking a big pounding, though, ripping off consistent big runs is different. I...
