James Robinson is being traded by the Jaguars to the Jets for a draft selection


The New York Jets are bringing in more help on the same day they revealed they would be without their explosive rookie rushing back for the season. James Robinson, a running back, will go to the Jets from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick that might move up to the fifth round. Breece Hall, a running back for the New York Jets, tore his anterior cruciate ligament earlier on Monday, according to a report. With the New York Jets off to a 5-2 start (the team’s best since 2010), they were active buyers before the November 1 trade deadline and made a significant purchase in response to the tragic death of Hall. The New York Jets have acquired Robinson, a former 1,000-yard rusher who has so far had a promising 2022 after recovering from an Achilles rupture in 2021. Although Robinson had a 100-yard performance in Week 3’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Travis Etienne has since taken over as the Jaguars’ leading running back. Jacksonville is now receiving at least a sixth-round pick for the former undrafted free agent after suffering four straight losses.
