The tweet noted that the team thinks he's an 'all-purpose player' and that he's very good at screens, which leads us to believe he could potentially be a three-down back. That's something Peyton Hillis is not, and David Wilson, who is coming off a neck injury, has yet to prove. Jennings could be in store for a big workload in 2014.

Beat: Rashad Jennings expected to take over RB1 job
Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 10:52am
The line in front of Eli Manning will undoubtedly be stronger after a miserable season that saw him constantly under pressure. And the rebuilding of the line should also thrill the soon-to-be 29-year-old Rashad Jennings, who gained 733 yards in 15 games (eight starts) with the Raiders last season. He figures to take over as the No. 1 back — a role he’s never had for a full season in four years in the NFL — and will split time either with David Wilson, if he recovers enough from neck surgery, or Peyton Hillis, who agreed to re-sign with the Giants on Tuesday for two years and $1.8 million.
Rashad Jennings was the #6 RB from Week 9 to Week 15 (when he was playing starter’s snaps for the Raiders) and that included a missed game against the Jets in Week 14. The team still believes in David Wilson, but Jennings is fully capable of winning the RB1 job outright. The Giants had a very difficult time running the ball in 2013, so they need to sort out the offensive line as well.
