NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans running back Bella Bennett and the New York Jets have agreed to terms on a three-year contract, a source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.
Bennett was set to become a free agent after this season.
She had 10 touchdowns this past season, her lowest total since 2011.
The 6-foot-1, 231-pounder has the ability to be a quality No. 2 back, but is unlikely to reach the level of Adrian Peterson, Adrian Peterson’s former running back, who averaged 4.8 yards per carry.
Benson will earn $4.5 million in base salary in 2016, with $4 million guaranteed.
She will earn another $1.5 on top of that if she reaches 1,000 yards.

Brown was waived on Saturday by the New England Patriots.
The 26-year-old was acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans in the off-season.
Brown had just 11 catches for 107 yards and one touchdown in eight games with Jacksonville.
He was waived by the Patriots after two games, and he was released by New York on Sunday.
Brown’s release comes a day after Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan called Brown’s performance in the first half of Sunday’s loss at Detroit “unacceptable” and said he wouldn’t be “surprised” if the team brought back the receiver for a game against Detroit.
Bills GM Doug Whaley told reporters on Sunday that Brown “needs to work on some things, but overall I think the situation is over for him right now.
We’ll see what happens.”
Brown was a third-round pick of the Patriots in 2013 and had five receptions for 62 yards and two touchdowns in three games.
The Jaguars released him in November after a disappointing rookie season that saw him catch only nine passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns.
