Kenneth Dixon has not played in 2019 but will have a chance to get some time in before the season ends. The former Ravens running back signed with the Jets on Wednesday night.
With Jets second-stringer Bilal Powell dealing with an ankle injury, the team added Dixon. The latter came into the NFL as a fourth-round Ravens pick during current Jets player personnel director Chad Alexander‘s time in Baltimore. The Jets worked out Dixon in November.
A 2016 draft choice, Dixon did not play out his rookie contract with the Ravens. After adding Mark Ingram and Justice Hill this offseason, the Ravens waived Dixon in September. The Louisiana Tech alum has battled injuries and suspensions. He did not play throughout 2017 and participated in just six games last season.
When healthy, Dixon has played fairly well. Last season, he joined the Lamar Jackson-led offense and averaged 5.6 yards per carry on 60 attempts. Dixon averaged 4.3 per tote on 88 carries in 2016.
