Disenchanted running back
The last straw for Stacy was the first-round draft of Todd Gurley. Stacy had fallen behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham on the depth chart a year ago. After starting 12 games and rushing for 973 yards in 2013, he started five games and rushed for 293 yards last season.
The Jets have struggled to find a featured back in recent years. Chris Ivory led the team with 821 yards in 2014.
Stacy fell behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham last season, and when the Rams selected Todd Gurley in first round of the draft, he made a public demand to leave St. Louis via trade and release. Stacy met with the Rams on Friday.
Stacy rushed for 973 yards and seven touchdowns on 250 carries in his rookie season in 2013 but managed just 293 yards and one touchdown on 76 carries last season while making just five starts.
Stacy made the public trade demand after the Rams selected RB
Appearing on the NFL Network, Ian Rapoport said that the Rams would be "more than happy" to deal Stacy. However, later in the day, Friday, the team met with Stacy's representatives, according to a report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The two sides had a positive discussion, but there was no decision made on Stacy's future with the team.
Meeting the media after the pick was made, Gurley said he's able to do cuts and controlled running. He's working out normally, with no limits, in the weight room and has been able to run full speed a couple of times, per STLToday.com.
"Everything is on schedule and I’m just looking forward to coming back," Gurley said. "I’ve still got a lot of work to do though."
Coach Jeff Fisher preached caution with his new running back.
"We’re not gonna rush it," Fisher said. "We may well be a little on the conservative side, but this is the running back of our future. It makes no sense to subject him to or put him in a bad situation sooner than we have to."
Gurley would open camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
