The New York Jets look a lot different this year. The roster is full of young talent across the board, and quarterback Zach Wilson is expected to make a major jump. For some reason, fans are even throwing money on the Jets to win the Super Bowl.
However, second-round draft pick Breece Hall remained unsigned as training camp began this week. Fans started to panic with a possible holdout from Hall.
Well, that didn’t last very long. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Hall and the Jets agreed to a deal.
#Jets second-round RB Breece Hall, who has been in the building all morning, is expected to sign his four-year rookie contract in time for rookies to report today, source said. Their last pick to sign.

It took a while, but the Jets have locked in their second-round pick and now have a talented running back duo of Hall and Michael Carter.
Fans were more than excited about this development, especially when it looked like he was going to be a holdout just a few hours before.

It went from panic mode to pure joy for Jets fans.
Breece Hall was electric at Iowa State and came into the 2022 NFL Draft as one of the best at the position, with many saying he is the No. 1 RB of the class. Let’s see how he does in his rookie campaign.
