The Jets released running back Isaiah Crowell on Thursday, just days after they reached an agreement with free agent Le'Veon Bell, the team announced.

The Jets save $3 million in cap space by cutting Crowell, however Crowell's contract counts for $2 million in dead cap space for 2019.

The 26-year-old Crowell, who signed a three-year, $12 million with New York last offseason, totaled 685 rushing yards, 152 receiving yards and six rushing touchdowns in 13 games last year.

With the start of the new league year just around the corner, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has said the Jets - with approximately $100 million of cap room - will be "very active in free agency." Let's review some of the top free agents who could be targets.

Edge Rusher: Dante Fowler, Los Angeles Rams

The Jets have coveted a difference-making pass rusher for some time, although they might be tempted to wait for the draft. With several players having been tagged, the market has thinned out a bit, but Fowler is one of a few available players the Jets have been linked to.

Over the next month or so, we're going to review some of the top draft prospects at each position to assess some potential candidates in whom the Jets may show interest. We continue with a look at the 2019 running back class.

Jets needs: Running backs

Whether or not the Jets will draft a running back in 2019 will heavily depend on how free agency plays out. The Jets are widely expected to be in the mix for Le'Veon Bell, and if they end up signing him, the running back position is unlikely to be a priority. Some pundits have suggested the Jets could target a less expensive back like Tevin Coleman instead.

The NFL's offseason is now underway it's going to be one of the most important in the history of the Jets' franchise. They have a new coach, they have a franchise quarterback, and they have about $100 million in salary cap room to spend on a relatively barren roster.

General Manager Mike Maccagnan can turn things around quickly. Or he could turn the Jets into an even bigger mess.

He's already begun making his plans to reshape the roster for the 2019 season, of course, and beginning Monday he can start to put that plan into action. The big day for the Jets will be the start of NFL free agency on March 13, but there will be plenty of cuts, restructured contracts and other maneuvers in the next few weeks as they get ready.
