The New York Jets will not be bidding for restricted free agent James Robinson

The Jets’ James Robinson scores a second half TD during the NY Jets’ 20-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills as the two teams meet in an AFC East game played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on November 6, 2022.

In unsurprising news, the New York Jets will not place a bid on a restricted free agent managed by James Robinson, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

It was a frustrating half-season for Robinson with the Jets. In a panic after losing Breece Hall for the year, the Jets promptly pulled out of the deal, acquiring Robinson in late October. The Jets had 10 regular season games left in 2022 when they added Robinson. He only went on to play in four.

New York Jets will transfer from James Robinson:

In the end, the Jets parted with a sixth round pick on Robinson. Robinson played a total of 57 snaps in the four games in which he appeared. Recorded 29 carries and caught 85 yards (2.9 per carry). Robinson may not have been in good health, a possible concern Gates may have overlooked when making this deal.

Robinson was never great from a blast standpoint and ended up being inactive for six of his last seven games. Ultimately, Robinson did express some frustration about his role to the media.

In the end, the move not to tender Robinson doesn’t come as a shock. The planes are very restricted right now, and the cheapest bid you could have offered Robinson would have been $2.6 million. Robinson’s short stint with the Jets was certainly less than ideal for him and the team.
