Former Clymer running back Jehuu Caulcrick is making a lot of noise in New York Jets training camp. A story in the Newark Star-Ledger chronicles his transition from tailback to fullback. It seems the 6-foot, 250-pound Caulcrick, one of the greatest players in Western New York history, is adjusting well to the position switch.
It helps that veteran starter Tony Richardson has taken Caulcrick under his wing. Richardson, a three-time Pro Bowler and a lead blocker for seven 1,000-yard rushers, used to be a tailback like Caulcrick. Richardson, a 14-year vet, is showing Caulcrick the ropes and giving the youngster the benefit of his experience.
After spending last year on the Jets' practice squad, Caulcrick, who also starred at Michigan State, is expected to get a lot of playing time in the preseason to see if he is worthy of a spot on the 53-man regular-season roster.
