The Jets got another one of their draft picks signed to a contract on Monday.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that running back Terrance Ganaway, a sixth-round pick out of Baylor, agreed to a four-year deal with the team. That gives the Jets three draft picks under contract as they start working out as a full team for the first time since the draft.
Ganaway provided some balance to Robert Griffin III’s throwing ability for Baylor in 2011. He ran for 1,547 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns, both of which were single-season records at the school. The Jets’ plans for Ganaway are a bit murkier since they have Shonn Greene, Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell at running back as well. Ganaway’s versatility — he’s big enough to block and a good pass-catcher — could help him carve out a role beyond special teams as a rookie.
Wide receiver Stephen Hill and safety Josh Bush are the other two Jets draftees to sign, which leaves five more contracts to work out.
