The big storyline

How will the Jets work out their running back snaps? According to reports at minicamp, Hall, a Round 2 rookie, is looking at getting No. 1 touches in his first season. But Carter offers something as well. How does that shake out?

Depth spots will also be up for grabs as the likes of Perine, Johnson and Coleman will look to lock up either one or two remaining spots.

Hall could start seeing a split in carries early in his career, but expect the Jets to start giving him a clear edge in touches once the year rolls on. While Carter has had his successes, reports in New York say the team really love Hall.

Behind that duo, Coleman could have an inside edge as a third-back back above the rest. The Jets did re-sign him this offseason as well.
