The New York Jets will sign former New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson, reports NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

Robinson, 26, played the last three seasons in New Orleans. In just eight games of action last season, he registered 180 yards rushing and four touchdowns on 56 carries for the Saints. His season was cut short on Nov. 1 when he sustained a broken leg.

In his NFL career, Robinson has accumulated 766 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 186 carries.

The Saints signed Robinson as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of West Texas A&M University.
