We have talked at length about the holes that the New York Jets offense has as we move closer to week one against the Buffalo Bills. There are many spots that need fine tuning, and one of them is at running back. The Jets are in dire need of a second back to complement Shonn Greene, and take the load off of his back a bit. The only guy that the Jets acquired to address this need, Terrance Ganaway, was released on Friday.

But, could the help come in the form of a trade?

LeGarrette Blount might be the answer, if he can be acquired. The Tampa Bay Bucs, Blount’s current team, signed a running back yesterday, claiming DJ Ware off of waivers from the New York Giants. He clearly will be the backup running back with the Bucs, making Blount expendable. A rumor was reported in a Tampa Bay newspaper that the Bucs might be interested in trading Blount. Tanny should give Tampa Bay a call. Why? Turn the page.
