The Jets are not a team that relies on flashbacks, running backs who are playmakers.
Nonetheless, with the impending retirement of LaDainian Tomlinson, the possible relegation to special teamer for Joe McKnight and the failure of Shonn Greene, the Jets may have to focus their attention on grabbing a playmaker like James.
James' flashy style earned him a Heisman nomination last year, as he was given the nod when LeGarrette Blount left.
2011 wasn't as great of a season for James, but it wasn't a total drop off, as James was named MVP of the Pac-12 championship game.
James isn't a first-round talent, as scouts have downgraded him as far as the third round.
However, the Jets should be wary, as the Buccaneers might have the same idea, especially after Blount said he wanted James as a teammate.
