Rams trade RB Stacy to Jets


The Sports Xchange

Zac Stacy got his wish.

A day after requesting a trade from the St. Louis Rams, who drafted Georgia running back Todd Gurley 10th overall, Stacy was dealt to the New York Jets on Saturday.

The Jets sent the Rams a seventh-round pick (No. 224 overall). The Rams used the pick on Baylor linebacker Bryce Hager.

When the Rams added Gurley, their backfield became a bit crowded — with Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham also there.

Stacy offered a one-word response via Twitter: “Yikes.” Then word emerged Friday that he wanted out of St. Louis.

Stacy, a fifth-round pick in 2013, rushed for 973 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie season, but he managed just 293 yards and one touchdown last season while making just five starts.

In New York, Stacy will join Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley and Bilal Powell.
