Tomlinson Safe in New York

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that despite the selection of Louisville running back Bilal Powell in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the New York Jets will not be parting ways with veteran running back.

Speculation arose that after taking Powell, the Jets, who also have Shonn Greene and Joe McKnight in the backfield, would release Tomlinson, who led the Jets in rushing last season with 914 yards and six touchdowns. Tomlinson turns 32 in June, and is due to earn $2.425 million in base salary with per game roster bonuses totaling $500,000.

Plenty of teams carry four running backs, so the addition of Powell didn't automatically threaten the status of the three currently on the team's roster. If anyone's seat got a bit warmer on Saturday, it may be McKnight's.

A 2010 fourth-round pick, McKnight vomited through his rookie mini-camp and HBO's "Hard Knocks" cameras documented his struggles in training camp. McKnight was inactive for seven games as a rookie, and contributed very little offensively until rushing for 158 yards against the run defense-challenged Buffalo Bills in the meaningless regular season finale that both Greene and Tomlinson sat out in order to rest for the playoffs.

Based on the headline I had thought there was some kind of violent incident, and he was "safe" in the hospital or something...
