Finally, the Jets are starting to allocate some of their league-high cap space.
Former Browns running back Isaiah Crowell intends to sign a three-year contract with the Jets when free agency begins Wednesday at 4 p.m., according to ESPN.
Crowell, 25, joined Cleveland as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He rushed for 853 yards and two touchdowns on 206 carries last season for the Browns.
The Jets entered the offseason with a big need at running back, and that need only grew when Matt Forte announced his retirement earlier this month. Crowell joins Bilal Powell and 2017 sixth-round pick Elijah McGuire in the Jets’ backfield.

Crowell’s reported contract is the second one the Jets agreed to Tuesday. Earlier in the day, they agreed to terms on a one-year, $10-million deal with Josh McCown, who will enter 2018 as the team’s starter under center.
The Jets enter free agency with just under $90 million in cap space, not counting the agreed-upon deals.
