Enunwa has had a solid bounce-back season with the team this year after missing all of last season with a neck injury. The wide receiver has 38 receptions this year and a total of 449 receiving yards in just 11 games. In 2016, Enunwa played all 16 games, picking up 857 yards and 58 receptions.
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan commented on the signing saying “Quincy is a key part of our foundation, and we are thrilled that this contract will keep him here for years to come.”
The signing will look to sure up a player that has the potential to have a significant impact with the team moving forward. It’s been a season to forget for the Jets as they sit last place in the AFC East and have a record of 4-11. Their final game of the season is on Sunday against the New England Patriots.
