The New England Patriots have a lot of work to do this offseason, but one position group that hasn’t been talked about frequently is the running back corps.

New England currently has Sony Michel, Damien Harris, J.J. Taylor and Brandon Bolden signed this season and James White is a free agent. Based off the results last season, this group may not be strong enough to carry a team to the playoffs with Cam Newton potentially at the helm.

According to a report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Patriots and New York Jets are teams who are actively seeking running backs. Here’s what Pelissero said.

“The attention now turns to Seattle’s Chris Carson, Arizona’s Kenyan Drake and (Aaron Jones’s) teammate, Jamaal Williams, who I can tell you is also going to have a strong market in free agency. Expect the Jets and the Patriots to be among the teams active in looking for running back help in the coming days.”
