RB Derrick Blaylock - Free Agent
|5-10, 190||Born: 8-23-1979||College: Stephen Austin||Drafted: Round 5, pick 0|
2006 Week 1 vs TEN (19 / 36 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Blaylock started the game and was the Jets' leading rusher, but averaged less than two yards per carry and his longest run was for only six yards. Blaylock rarely had much room to run, but tried gamely. He contributed two short receptions in the passing game.
2006 Week 2 vs NE (6 / 8 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Blaylock was ineffective in six rushing attempts, totaling seven yards. He was not lacking in effort, but just could not overcome the lack of running room. Blaylock was more useful as a receiver, catching three passes for 19 yards. He dropped another opportunity, however.
2006 Week 5 vs JAX (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Blaylock was active for the first time in the past three weeks, but did not carry the ball and was not targeted.
2005 Week 3 vs JAX (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Blaylock had three rushing attempts as he spelled Martin. It had been widely reported that Martin's knee injury was causing him more discomfort than the team was saying and Blaylock was expected to play more than he did.
2005 Week 4 vs BAL (2 / -2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Blaylock entered the game for Curtis Martin after his minor injury and was blown up in the backfield on both of his runs. His lone reception on the day was a meaningless dump off of the Jets' last offensive play that fell ten yards short of converting a first down.
2005 Week 5 vs TB (3 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Blaylock has been talked about with Martin's nagging injuries but Martin looked healthy and Blaylock was a non factor in the game, rushing for one yard on three attempts and catching one pass for three yards. He left the game with a broken foot that will reportedly sideline him for a long while.
2005 Week 16 vs NE (3 / 20 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Blaylock didn't start the game, but in the end he was more successful than Cedric Houston. That isn't saying much, however, as he only gained 24 total yards. His blocking was suspect, and he wasn't able to get open much on pass routes.
2005 Week 17 vs BUF (4 / 14 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Blaylock was used to spell Houston from time to time. He carried four times for a total of 14 yards.
