The New York Jets have signed wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to a contract extension on Friday afternoon. Enuwa has signed a four-year deal to remain with the franchise.
According to Pro Football Weekly’s Eric Edholm, Enunwa will be worth up to $36 million. He will be paid $20 million guaranteed.
Enunwa has missed the past several games with an ankle injury.
He would have been one of six Jets free agents that were wide receivers. Now, with Enunwa signed to an extension, the Jets now have Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Rishard Matthews, Robby Anderson, and Deontay Burnett as free agents.
The 26-year-old Moreno Valley, California native was expected to be a free agent before striking this deal. He was already slated to be out on Sunday in the team’s season-finale.
This season, Enunwa has had 38 receptions for 449 yards and a touchdown in 11 games, including 10 starts. He also had one carry for no yardage.
In his finale game with the Jets this season, he had three receptions for 22 yards in the team’s 27-23 win over the Buffalo Bills on December 9th. In his final two games of the season, he has five receptions for 31 yards.
His best game of the season was a seven receptions performance for 92 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. His lone touchdown of the season came in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions when he had six receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown.
