Free-agent running back Bilal Powell will return to the New York Jets for a ninth season after the two sides agreed to terms on a new contract Friday.

Powell, who turns 31 in October, finished last season on injured reserve after suffering a neck injury in Week 7. The veteran rushed for 343 yards and added 110 yards and a touchdown in the passing game.

Powell will rejoin a backfield that is now led by prized free-agent acquisition Le'Veon Bell and also includes Ty Montgomery and Elijah McGuire. Powell scampered for over 700 yards on the ground in both 2016 and 2017.
