New York Jets – Trying To Make Sense Of It: Kalen Ballage

Matt Gianesses defends the New York Jets trade for Kalen Ballage

On Thursday afternoon, the Jets traded a 7th round, conditional pick for Miami’s Kalen Ballage. What exactly is a conditional draft pick? A pick that won’t be dealt unless specific details (conditions) are met. The conditions can be anything under the sun as long as both teams agree on them. Many, including myself, wondered why the Jets would trade for another running back when they already have three formidable guys. Let’s try to make sense of it.

One of the agreed upon conditions is for Ballage to make the Jets’ roster (Per Ian Rapoport). If the Jets choose to cut him, they get to keep their 7th round pick. And that may just happen. Kalen Ballage was not a good football player in 2019. He averaged 1.8 YPC in the backend of the season. (To be fair, Miami’s line was as bad as the Jets’.) He did, however, average 5+ YPC on Adam Gase’s Dolphins in 2018.
