On Tuesday, former jets runner Bilal Powell announced his retirement decision. He will sign a one-day contract with the jets and retire as a jets player.
Powell, 33, has not played since the 2019 season. Although he suffered serious neck injury in 2018 season, Powell, who returned after surgery, still played 13 games.
As the fourth round show in 2011, Powell has played for the jets throughout his career and is the team’s top punching code (772 yards) in 2017. He is a reliable No. 2 running guard and has worked with ladanian Tomlinson, Chris ivory, Matt forte and others.
Powell made a total of 3675 yards for the ball and 5275 yards for the ball (seventh in team history).
“One year, the two teams that threw olive branches at me in the off-season became the final Super Bowl duel.” Powell recalled, “but I choose to return to the jets every year because I want to win the trophy here… When I signed a contract and became a member of the jets, I want to stay in the jets, which is my personal idea. I always want to win the trophy, not only for myself, but also for the fans.”
