Report: Jets Express Interest in BenJarvus Green-Ellis

Report: Jets Express Interest in BenJarvus Green-EllisPlenty of players have flip-flopped between the Patriots and Jets over the years, so should we really be shocked when rumors of such happening again surface?

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.
