The Jets re-signed Bawden (undisclosed) on Monday, Howard Balzer of GoPHNX.com reports.
Bawden missed the entirety of the 2022 season with an undisclosed injury but will look to bounce back next season. Currently the only fullback on the roster, the 26-year-old should have the opportunity to help open up holes for Breece Hall and the rest of the Jets backfield next year in addition to providing value as a special teamer....

Jets' Nick Bawden: Lands on IR
Bawden (undisclosed) was placed on the Jets' injured reserve Tuesday, Andy Vasquez of NJ.com reports.
It's unclear what injury Bawden is dealing with, but he will be forced to miss the entirety of the regular season unless he can negotiate an injury settlement with the team. The 26-year-old fullback recorded one catch for 20 yards over nine games with the team in 2021, though he primarily played on special teams (164 of his 220 total snaps) over that span....

Bawden re-signed with the Jets on a one-year contract Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Bawden was shuffled between the Jets' practice squad and the active roster last year, and he played mainly on special teams. He didn't record any carries but hauled in his lone target for 20 yards while appearing in nine games.

Nick Bawden: Let go by Lions
Bawden was waived by Detroit on Thursday.

It's unclear as to the specifics of the injury, but the 2018 seventh-round pick will reside on IR barring an injury settlement with the club. Bawden saw action in 10 games in 2019 while playing on offense and special teams, catching four passes for 17 yards.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Shut down for season
Bawden (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Bawden's season is over after he suffered a knee injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. The second-year fullback averaged 12.7 offensive snaps per game this year, catching four of six targets for 17 yards. The Lions don't have another fullback on their active or practice rosters, so they may choose to fill the void via a free agent.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Done for day
Bawden (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Bawden left the game late in the second quarter and, as evidenced by this news, the issue will keep him out of the remainder of the game. The team is without another healthy fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how they'll operate going forward.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Suffers injury Sunday
Bawden (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Bawden popped up on the injury report with a foot injury Saturday, but, as evidenced by this news, seems to be dealing with a new issue. The 2018 seventh-round pick is the team's only fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how the offense will approach things while Bawden is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Ready to roll
Bawden (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Bawden popped up on the injury report with a questionable tag Saturday, but it won't keep him out of the game. The second-year pro is the team's only fullback, and he'll pave the way for Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Now questionable for Week 11
Bawden (foot) has been added to the Lions' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Bawden is the only fullback on the Lions' roster, so they would presumably go with more single-back formations should he ultimately be unable to go. Clarity on his status will come closer to Sunday's kickoff.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Still without a carry in 2019
Bawden logged 16 offensive snaps during Sunday's 31-26 victory over the Giants.
Bawden shook off a back injury to play in Week 7 against Minnesota and then worked through a foot injury to play Sunday against New York. However, he didn't handle any offensive touches despite the absence of Kerryon Johnson (knee). If he wasn't a factor this week, it seems unlikely that the fullback will ever get many opportunities to make a dent in the stat sheet.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Suiting up against Giants
Bawden (foot) is active Week 8 against the Giants.
Bawden overcame a back injury to take the field last week, but it was a foot issue that limited his practice time in advance of the home matchup against New York. The only difference for Bawden this week is he'll be blocking for the likes of Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic, who will be taking on running back duties after Kerryon Johnson (knee) was placed on IR.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Nick Bawden: Questionable for Sunday
Bawden (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
