The Facts: The New York Jets curtailed their running back depth chart ahead of training camp. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Jets are releasing running back Henderson today, per a source informed of the decision. The team later confirmed the transaction.
Diehards Line: Henderson, a 2017 Denver Broncos sixth-round pick, played in three games for Gang Green last year but earned just two carries for 19 yards. With Le'Veon Bell set to carry the load, Ty Montgomery as a pass-catcher, Bilal Powell, Elijah McGuire, Trenton Cannon and former Rugby League player Valentine Holmes (part of the international pathway program), the Jets likely didn't see reps for Henderson during camp and preseason. The rest of the crew behind Bell will scrap for any remaining carries.
