In four seasons with the Chiefs, West has been a versatile offensive asset. The 27-year-old accumulated 266 carries and 75 receptions with 1,551 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns in 49 games.
Per Pro Football Focus (h/t Fantasy Pros' Jody Smith), West's 31 targets without a drop last season tied for 10th-most in the NFL.
West joins a Jets running-back stable that includes Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell and Thomas Rawls. Crowell, whom the Jets signed in March, will likely be their starter.
The Jets can use West in a similar fashion to how Matt Forte was deployed last season. Forte was the main receiving option out of the backfield with 37 receptions and had 103 carries.
