The Jets originally wanted to make Shonn Greene their feature back this year, but he struggled in the beginning so they went with Tomlinson.
Tomlinson did great in the beginning of the season but struggled at the end. The opposite went for Shonn Greene who stepped up at the end of the year.
Although Tomlinson is not a free agent, there have been talks about the Jets cutting him in order to save money.
Tomlinson had 914 rushing yards this season and six touchdowns. He has also been a great receiving back for Sanchez and helped him find a check-down back when he was in trouble.
Staying or going: Going
The Jets will probably make Shonn Greene their feature back and will reduce Tomlinson's role next season. Also, with the success of Joe McKnight against the Bills, the Jets might consider McKnight to have the potential to upgrade to a second back that can receive like Tomlinson.
With all the free agents that the Jets need to sign, it's not looking good for Tomlinson.
