Jets waive Zac Stacy and sign Bernard Pierce

The New York Jets signed running back Bernard Pierce after waiving Zac Stacy due to a failed physical.

What It Means:

Stacy is still working his way back from a broken ankle that was suffered last season, but the Jets are more willing to roll with the suspended Bernard Pierce on the training camp roster. Pierce is suspended for the first two weeks of the season, but is eligible to participate in camp and preseason. He's no lock to make the final 53-man roster either, as the Jets are already pretty deep at running back.

Before today, our algorithms projected Stacy to turn eight carries into 28 rushing yards in 2016, while catching four passes for 29 yards through the air. Pierce isn't likely to do much more than that.
