The New York Jets have acquired running back Zac Stacy in a trade with the St. Louis Rams.
Stacy reportedly asked to be traded or released after the Rams selected Georgia running back Todd Gurley with the 10th pick on Thursday. Immediately after the pick was announced, Stacy tweeted "Yikes," and later deleted the message.
Stacy was a fifth-round pick in 2013 and started 12 games as a rookie. He rushed for 973 yards with seven touchdowns on 250 carries in his first season. Stacy's role in the Rams offense decreased in his second season, as he carried only 76 times, compared to 179 yards for rookie Tre Mason.
The Rams used the pick acquired in the trade to draft Baylor linebacker Bryce Hager.
