Jets intent on re-signing Powell

The Jets have strong interest in re-signing free agent running back Bilal Powell (Mehta, March 5).

According to reporter Manish Mehta, the Jets feel Powell is the free agent RB who makes the most sense for them financially.

While playing behind Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson last season, Powell, 26, had 33 carries for 141 yards and caught 11 passes for 92 yards.

With the Jets not retaining Johnson, bringing back Powell would make sense.

Ravens’ Chris Canty plans to visit the Jets on Friday

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens’ defensive end and former Giant is set to visit the Jets this Friday.

He will be the second free agent DE to visit the Jets this week. ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner reported Tuesday that that Kendall Langford will also be visiting this week.

Jets sign DE Ronald Talley

The New York Jets announced Wednesday that they have signed free agent defensive end Ronald Talley (New York Jets, March 4).

Talley played three seasons with Arizona including one under the Jets head coach Todd Bowles when he was the defensive coordinator in 2013.

The 29-year-old from Detroit played his first two seasons at Notre Dame and finished his collegiate career at Delaware. He signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2009, spending the following season on the Packers practice squad.

After spending three seasons with the Cardinals, Talley signed as a free agent with the Buccaneers for the 2014 season, but ultimately was cut from the squad and did not play at all last season.
