Jets Also Hosting RB Orleans Darkwa

According to Jordan Raann, the Jets are hosting free agent RB Orleans Darkwa for a visit on Saturday.

The Jets are also meeting with Alfred Morris Saturday (NFLTR).

New York is in the market for running back help after Elijah McGuire suffered a fracture in his foot during practice that is going to require surgery and will force him to miss an extended period of time.

Darkwa recently announced via his Twitter account that he’s been medically cleared after he underwent offseason surgery to remove a plate from his leg (NFLTR).

The Bills and Patriots brought Darkwa in for recent visits, but neither signed him to a deal.

Darkwa, 26, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane back in 2014. He spent just a few months in Miami before he was signed off of their practice squad by the Giants.

New York brought Darkwa back on an exclusive rights contract in 2016 and re-signed him to a one-year contract last year.

In 2017, Darkwa appeared in 15 games for the Giants and rushed for 751 yards on 171 carries (4.4 YPC to go along with 19 receptions for 116 yards receiving and five total touchdowns.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available 2018 NFL Free Agents list.
