The Jets have interest in sigining pending free agent RB Orleans Darkwa, according to NJ.com. Darkwa has been with the Giants for the last four seasons after spending the first year of his career with the Dolphins.
Darkwa, 26, rushed 171 times for a career-high 751 yards with five touchdowns in 15 games last season for the Giants.
He tallied a career-high 154 rushing yards on 20 carries in the final game of the season, including a 75-yard touchdown run on his second touch of the game.
"We'll see what happens," Darkwa told NJ.com's Ryan Dunleavy at the end of the season about staying with the Giants. "I love the fans here. I love the players. I've been here for a while and it's definitely been fun, but I'm looking forward to the future. I'm not going to sit here and say I'll be back. I don't know what the future holds for me. That's to discuss with my agent."
Of the Jets main running backs from last season, Matt Forte has retired, Bilal Powell is an unrestricted free agent, and Elijah McGuire is under contract through 2020.
