The New York Jets have signed free agent defensive tackle Mike Pennel to a 3 year deal worth up to $12 million according to multiple sources.

Pennel, a massive, soon to be 27 year old, 6’ 5”, 360 pound defensive tackle, spent the 2017 season with the Jets, playing in all 16 games with three starts. Pennel enjoyed the best year of his career with the Jets in 2017, amassing 35 tackles in a part time role.

The exact terms of Pennel’s contract have not been released, but with the contract reportedly providing Pennel the opportunity to earn up to $12 million it would appear the Jets have a substantial role for Pennel in mind going forward.
