Jets trade for Jaguars RB James Robinson with Breece Hall out

Longtime Jets beat writer for New York Daily News

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Striking quickly to fill a sudden void in their backfield, theNew York Jetsacquired running backJames Robinsonfrom theJacksonville Jaguarsfor a conditional draft pick on Tuesday.

The Jets will send a 2023 conditional sixth-round pick to the Jaguars, which becomes a fifth-rounder if Robinson rushes for 600 yards this season, a source told ESPNs Adam Schefter on Monday night. Robinson already has 340 yards.

After losing standout rookieBreece Hallto aseason-ending knee injury on Sunday, and with the Nov. 1 trade deadline approaching, Jets general manager Joe Douglas scoured the market for a replacement. Robinson, one of the leagues top success stories only two years ago, lost his starting job recently and became expendable.

The Jets (5-2), off to their best start since 2010, can use Robinson andMichael Carteras a one-two punch. Theyre 4-0 since shifting to a ground-oriented attack, and Robinson -- known to be a high-volume back -- should allow the Jets to continue with that style. They also haveTy JohnsonandZonovan Knight, who was signed to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday when the Jets placed Hall and offensive linemanAlijah Vera-Tuckeron injured reserve. The Jets also signed offensive linemanMyron Cunninghamto their practice squad.

It will be difficult to replace Halls production, though. He is eighth in the NFL in rushing with 463 yards, averaging 5.8 yards per carry and scoring a touchdown in four straight games.

Robinson is in the final year of his rookie contract and will be a restricted free agent after the season, meaning the Jets will have an opportunity to retain his rights for 2023.

Travis Etienne Jr.surpassed Robinson on the Jaguars depth chart over the past several weeks and got the start in the past two games, rushing for 200 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries (8.3 yards per carry) in losses to theIndianapolis ColtsandNew York Giants.

Jaguars coach Doug Pederson said the team wasnt shopping Robinson but decided to go ahead with the Jets trade offer because they are confident in Etienne and the other running backs on the roster.

Robinson has rushed for 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Jaguars, including 1,070 yards and seven touchdowns as an undrafted rookie in 2020. His 1,414 yards from scrimmage that season were the most by an undrafted rookie in NFL history.

Robinson had 767 yards and eight rushing touchdowns last season before suffering a torn left Achilles tendon in the Jaguars Week 16 loss at the Jets.

Robinson was ready for the 2022 season opener, however, and ran for 66 yards and a touchdown to go along with a touchdown catch in Jacksonvilles loss to theWashington Commanders. He had a season-high 23 carries in Week 2 and 17 in Week 3, before Etienne became a bigger part of the backfield rotation.

Robinson played only 12 snaps in Sundays loss to theNew York Giantsand did not record a carry or a reception in a game for the first time in his career. Pederson said Monday that Robinson was dealing with some knee soreness, but he was not listed on the injury report last week.
