NFL: New York Jets-Training Camp Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa has signed his one year restricted free agent tender to stay with the Jets in 2018.

Enunwa will make around $2.9 million.

This seemed like a formality. Enunwa was free to seek a deal from other teams, but by offering him the $2.9 million tender the Jets had the right to match any offer made. The Jets also would have been entitled to a second round pick in the event Enunwa signed with another team, and they chose not to match. Simply put, the odds of another team giving up a second round pick for a guy coming off a serious neck injury with a single 800 yard season to his name were slim and none.

Enunwa missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury he sustained during a training camp practice. He had a career high 58 catches for 857 yards in the 2016 season.
