The Miami Dolphins are trading running back Kalen Ballage to the New York Jets, Ian Rapoport reported. He’ll be reunited with coach Adam Gase.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Miami Dolphins are trading the running back to the New York Jets in exchange for a late-round draft pick, per a source informed of the deal.
The Dolphins planned to cut Ballage, but before he hit the wire, the Jets swooped in with a late-round offer to pick up the running back without having to battle other teams.
Ballage, a 2018 fourth-round pick, played for Adam Gase as a rookie, so the familiarity with the staff is there.
Ballage played college football at Arizona State.
