Nevertheless, the Jets have expressed interest in Patriots free-agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, according to the New York Post.
The interest is reportedly preliminary at the moment and nothing is imminent, as the Jets have yet to schedule a meeting with the 26-year-old back.
Green-Ellis, who eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in 2010 and has double-digit touchdown totals the past two seasons, met with the Bengals already. The Jets, however, stand to lose free-agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson, and could be interested in adding some more depth alongside starter Shonn Greene.
The Patriots could still look to retain Green-Ellis, who's never fumbled in his four-year career, but if he looks to receive starter money on the open market, New England could choose to let him walk.
