Jets To Waive Zac Stacy

The Jets are expected to waive running back Zac Stacy with a failed physical designation, a source tells Adam Caplan of (on Twitter). The tailback had left ankle surgery last November and apparently he has not fully recovered. Zac Stacy (vertical)

On Wednesday morning, the Jets signed running back Bernard Pierce and it appears that Pierce was brought in to replace the outgoing Stacy.

The Jets acquired the 24-year-old Stacy from the Rams during the 2015 draft, but the power back wasn’t able to come out of the slide that he has experience after his strong rookie season. Playing behind Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, Stacy rushed for just 89 yards on 31 carries in his eight games for the Jets last year.

The former fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft gained 973 yards for the Rams as a rookie. In his follow-up campaign, he amassed just 293 yards. His yards-per-carry figure of 3.9 in both of his St. Louis slates plummeted to 2.9 as a Jet.
