A league source told PFW that the New York Jets and big receiver Quincy Enunwa have signed a contract extension that will keep him with the team for the foreseeable future.
Enunwa has agreed to an extension of four years worth $ 36 million. The deal also includes an injury guarantee of just over $ 20 million.
The Jets later confirmed that the deal was completed and that Enunwa had signed his contract.
The 2014 out-of-Nebraska pick-round pick has surpassed his drafting status, even though he was temporarily hampered by injuries in his five NFL seasons. He has caught 38 passes for 448 yards and a TD in 1
But the Jets clearly believe that Enunwa, as one of the QB, is considered to be Sam Darnold's dependable targets for the upcoming season and beyond. In 40 NFL games (29 starts) Enunwa scored a total of 118 catches for 1,621 yards (13.7 average) with five TDs. He was also suspended in the 2015 season four games because he had violated the Code of Conduct of the League, but the Jets supported him in this case publicly.
Enunwa had played a one-year contract worth $ 2.9 million this season. His new contract will be signed one day before the League's closing date, which will be counted against the team's upper limit for 2018. This is an additional benefit for the jets who are again big players in the free agency this spring.
